Dear Friends,

It's amazing how a year can fly by and we are now finally in 2016!! Whoop Whoop!

The reigns have been officially handed over to Rafael Tselikas and his team.

I know that next year will be an 'extraordinary' one building on what we have achieved in 2015.  It has been an honour to serve as President in 2015 and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 'A-Team' (JCI London) council team for great year and memorable 12 months.  

A few highlights from 2015:

·         Building strategic partnerships with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Philanthropy Club, Funding Network, while continuing to support our long-term sponsor CET

·         Maintaining strong international presence. Last year JCI London members attended European Capitals Meeting, European Conference, JCI Norway Leadership Academy, European Academy, European Know-How Transfer and World Congress in Japan.

·         We re-invigorated our partnership with our Twin Chapters and hosted our Twinning Weekend.

·         We launched our Adventure Race and raised £1,243.75 (incl. gift aid) for Kids Club Kampala, KIIDs Trust Varanasi and The Prince’s Trust!

·         Our London to Ghana Project delivered 1,000 kids’ books for JCI ACCRA ROYALE 'Brighten you Corner project. We also won 'Best Long-term Community Development Project' at JCI UK National Convention in Barnsley.

The Team for 2016 has lot's in store and will exceed what has been achieved in 2015!
