JCI London has five twins – JCI chambers in other European Capital cities that we have a special relationship with, with the aim of promoting the sharing of cultural exchange, ideas and best practice. JCI London’s twins are Stockholm, Paris, Tallinn, Copenhagen and Berlin.
The multi-twinning weekend is a past tradition of JCI London, which was reinstigated in 2011. On the weekend of 9-11 September members from each of the chamber’s five twins were invited over for a weekend of home hospitality, sight-seeing and socialising, i.e. to learn how to really live like a Londoner. Activities included:
Welcome drinks and curry on Brick Lane
Shopping in Camden followed by a trip down Regent’s Canal
Dinner in Holland Park followed by clubbing in Kensington
Farewell brunch by the River Thames
The weekend was attended by a total of over 40 JCI London members, members from four out of five of our twin chambers, senators and also several alumni, who we were delighted chose to reconnect with the chamber for this event. Thanks to the fantastic feedback received we are definitely planning to host another twinning weekend next year!
