Congratulations to all the Chapters for making it through Trimester 2!! Our Programming Team is excited to review all the Chapter submissions. Thanks to all the competitors who signed up to compete in Trimester 2. It is going to be another great round of Professional Skills Competitions.

All Competitors, SPE Presenters, and Judges should have received an email from the Programming Director for Competitions, Shannon Brunt, with further details regarding their competition.

Please feel free to contact the Programming Team with any questions. The Programming Team is here to assist you as we are making an impact in our communities. It is great to see chapters doing in-person events and still doing virtual events. But, please remember to still adhere to social distancing guidelines and other restrictions included in the Governor’s Executive Orders and local health departments.

We are excited to see what chapters are doing in Trimester 3 with continuing to adjust to the “new normal”! Be sure to share your events with the Programming Team and the rest of JCI Michigan so we can support each other in the comeback. Now is the time to “Pave the Programming Way Together” Jaycees!

Warm Regards,
