JCI Victoria, the most senior chapter in Hong Kong, has proactively responded to challenges in the community since 1950, helping to generate awareness on important social and economic issues which impact our daily lives.
Our highlighted projects in 2013 include:
25th Grandparents Day
Every year, we try to promote harmony between grandparents and grandchildren through this event. This year, we will teach grandparents how to use popular social media, such as Facebook, to follow latest updates of their grandchildren.
We will continue to provide a platform for local corporations and SMEs to learn about innovative ways to build the brand. This year, we will share how to make use of social media in brand building.
Fortune Family Project for Ethnic Minorities
We will take family picture for ethic minority families in HK, and through photo exhibition to let more people understand their daily lives in HK, thus understand more about each other and enhance social inclusion.
Experience another HK campaign
Through difference workshops and social service opportunities, we let our members and participants step into the society and experience various social issues in HK, for example, food waste, political refugees.
Last but not least, we will meet with JC members from other countries through different events:
JCI Asia Pacific Conference in Gwangju, South Korea
JCI World Congress in Rio, Brazil
Asia Pacific International City Conference attended by members of the 6 most senior chapters in Asia
50th Anniversary of our sister chapter JCI Tawau in Malaysia
55th Anniversary of our sister chapter JCI Tainan in Taiwan
Anniverary of JCI Seoul Dongdaemoon in Korea
I hope through these projects, our members can make positive change for themselves and for the society.
For myself, as a president this year, my ultimate goal is not launching these projects successfully, or significant growing in membership number, or getting many awards at the end of the year. For me, the most important thing is to strengthen the bonding between members, and build a platform for our members to develop and shine, thus contribute to the society. That’s why slogan of this year is “We as ONE”, because without your active participation, we can’t achieve this.
So in 2013, if I could have one wish from you, I wish you could actively participate our events, and I guarantee you could get something from this JC Treasure Island.
