About

JCI New York State
Convention


JCI New York State Convention is a regional event organized twice a year by the
JCI New York State Board in order to connect, learn, share and celebrate the common efforts of changing the world for the better with our local actions in our communities. At this convention, we talk and learn about the current challenges and how we can address them. We connect and engage with each other through our networking events and we celebrate outstanding chapters and individuals that moved the organization forward. For non-members, it’s a great opportunity to learn more about JCI  and how they can join the organization.

This year’s theme is “Transformation: Becoming Resilient In Times of Uncertainty” since we believe that is important to encourage and promote adaptation and become more resilient during this unprecedented intersection of economic and health crises. Through this event, we wish to share our vision and take action to face a changing world and sustain the JCI ideologies of brotherhood and of being the largest network of young active citizens.
