Welcome to the Virginia JCI Senate Website!
I want to thank my fellow Senators for giving me the opportunity to serve as the 40th President of the Virginia JCI Senate. Your board has a fun filled and active year planned. I hope you will come out and participate in the many activities and meetings that we have planned and that you will get to know our leadership team.
For those of you that I have not yet met, let me give you a brief history of my background. I received my Senatorship in February 1979, but did not become active in the in the Senate until 1988 when the US Jaycee National Convention was held in Richmond. From then until 1994 I was active in the Virginia JCI Senate, serving as a director for several years and then as Vice President. In 1994 I moved to Utah
Where I became active in the Utah JCI Senate. I served as President of the Utah Senate in 2004 and the following year was elected National Vice President for Region X (AZ, CA, HI, NV, UT). I have been involved with the national organization ever since.
My theme for the Virginia Senate this year is “Make a Difference”. I hope that is just what we can do for the Jaycees. By visiting chapters, providing encouragement, mentoring leaders when asked, and giving a helping hand where we can maybe, we can make a difference and change the Virginia Jaycees from a declining organization into one that is growing!
This year will offer the Virginia Senate the opportunity to host the Mid Atlantic Institute (MAI) Meeting in April. We will need to show support for our Region and for the US JCI Senate as the host for this meeting! I hope that you can support the Senate this year not only with your dues but with your time as well. But most of all I hope you will please make an effort to “Make a Difference!”
