Greetings and Happy New Year to JCI members, partners and friends all over the world!
2015 is a unique and important year for JCI. This year, we honor our past as we celebrate a bright and exciting future. With the 100th Anniversary of the JCI Movement, 2015 is an opportunity for JCI members, alumni, partners and friends to unite for a better world. This is our opportunity to highlight the positive change young active citizens have created throughout the past 100 years, while continuing to empower young people to take action for sustainable impact for the next 100 years. I encourage each of you to think about how your JCI Local and National Organization can take advantage of this great opportunity and share JCI’s story of 100 years of impact in your community.
In 2015, I call on you to Commit to the future, Connect with the future and Care for the future. Every action we take in the present, paves the way for a better world for future generations. As young active citizens, it is our duty to unite fellow citizens from the business, government and civil sectors of society. This year is about making those connections; connections between our past and future, connections between local and international communities, connections between JCI members and fellow active citizens across all sectors of society. Our actions will allow us to commit to the betterment of our communities, connect our global network and care for the future of our world. Starting at the local level, with JCI members like you, I know we can take great action this year to move us closer toward our goal of being the organization that unites all sectors of society to create sustainable impact.
Thank you for your continued support, your smiles and I hope to see you somewhere in the world very soon. I wish each of you a happy and healthy start to your year. Commit, Connect and Care for the future of JCI and our world as we celebrate 100 Years of Impact in 2015.
