It’s once again that time to review the year and start thinking together of what 2020 will look like for our Chamber.
JCI Southampton will be holding its annual AGM on Thursday 14 November for members to catch up, discuss development opportunities, review the year and plan next year’s activities and plan of action. We will be discussing the projects that we’ve run in 2019 and evaluate our 2020 plan of action. We will also elect the team that will create the 2020 Plan of Action.
The AGM is the opportunity for all members to come together and discuss how to shape the chamber and elect the team that will lead on the strategic decisions and represent all members on a local, national and international basis.
We are looking for anyone interested in taking on a role on our council team for 2020 as well as those interested in getting involved in a stand-alone project. Joining the Council and getting involved in the running of a local chamber is one of the best ways to get the most of your JCI membership, developing new skills, taking on challenges, and networking with professionals and businesses across the city.
