Interested In Joining?
A note from Eyad Hamouieh, our 2013 Chamber President...
Thank you for taking an interest in joining JCI London!
As of May 2012, Membership of the Chamber is at an all-time high - approaching 150 members.
The Chamber forms part of a national and global network of young, active citizens. The potential benefits are huge - but only if you are committed to making the most of what membership has to offer.
Since Membership involves an investment of time and funds both on your part and on the part of JCI, we are committed to ensuring the 'fit' is right. We would hate for you to join - only for you to find that membership is not for you!
You'll notice my emphasis above on the word 'active'. If all you are looking for is the opportunity to turn up to the odd event every once in a while, then I'm afraid JCI membership will not be for you.
You remain, of course, welcome to continue attending our events as a Guest.
Are you still with me...?
Then please send through a short email to our Membership Director, explaining your interest in becoming a member of JCI London.
You may have any number of reasons, such as to...
- Gain project management skills and experience in a 'safe environment'
- Experience international conferences both in Europe and beyond
- Broaden your professional network beyond your existing sector
- Gain confidence and sharpen your skills in public speaking
- Access expertise from thought-leaders acros the private, public and not-for-profit sectors
- Contribute to the success of any of our upcoming events
- Or something else!
Our Membership Director is Eleanor Handslip: firstname.lastname@example.org
Following that email, Eleanor will then invite you to schedule a chat by phone with the most relevant member of the Council, so you can ask any questions you may have.
There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers. It's not a job interview! From our side, we would simply like to understand 'what makes you tick'... what are you really looking to gain... what are you willing to contribute... which aspects of the chamber most interest you?
That's why we strongly encourage you to attend some events before deciding whether to join.
**Either way, before registering to join, you must send us an email and arrange a phone chat, please!**
Once that's done, you can then complete the joining form on the JCI UK website. This paperwork is handled centrally - but soon enough, you'll be officially enrolled as JCI most recent member. You'll receive the welcome letter and pack from JCI UK and our Membership Director will also be in touch.
Membership is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 40 and currently costs just £120 per year (£10 per month) for standard membership or £50 for student membership (full time students only). We also have corporate membership opportunities and a JCI UK Friend scheme. As a member of JCI UK, as well as attending local events and getting involved in local projects, you can attend events nationally and internationally.
