Many local and national Senate organisations have great projects to promote JCI or senator friendship. Given the overall decline in the number of members of our organisation, the most important projects are of course those which aim at bringing more enthousiastic and active members to the local level. We as Senators know that there is no reason to re-invent the wheel. So why not share here your local/national Senate's best practices with the other Senate organisations and/or choose some of the following Best Practices as the basis for the next actions to take!
Is your project the next Best Practice to be shared among the senators...?
If your national Senate has a great idea about how to help the Jaycees increase the number of members in their local / national organisations or to increase contacts between the members, the Senators and the local communities and businesses, why not share it with your fellow Senators all over Europe? All you need to do is to contact your ASE Ambassador or the ASE Web Editor and see how this idea could be promoted across Europe, also here on the ASE website.
'Return the Favor' is an award programme of the US JCI Senate that strives to recognize the outstanding efforts of Senators who have contributed to local Jaycee Chapters and State organisations.

The French Senate has developed a computer tool that helps LOMs to make a detailed and very useful analysis of the situation of the LOM, of their strengths but also of their weaker points needing further development. The result of this tool, which is available both in French and in English, is an easily readable spider-web graph. For more information, please contact:

How do we manage to get new members interested in our LOM, to motivate them and ensure their long-term loyalty to our association? This is a central question which as members of the JCI we have to ask ourselves again and again.
Answering these questions is the aim of the LOM potential analysis, because no matter how different the LOMs are in their structure and size, the question of motivating members to become more involved, recruiting new members, ensuring succession for the board members and the search for events which will have a public impact are topics which are high on the agenda for all of us.
I am therefore very pleased that we have succeeded in developing this project further together with the JCI Senators, and in spreading it not just to our own LOMs in the interests of our association but making it available to all international JCI LOMs. This is exactly what we need if we wish to give our association the stimulus for positive ongoing development: highly committed members who are ready to pull together with us, organise projects on a voluntary basis, show high levels of motivation and communicate a positive entrepreneurial image.
With cordial Jaycee greetings!
