Best Chapter

“I’m so proud that the benchmark we started has been kept by the succeeding leaders of our chapter,” remarked the founding Charter President Cerwin T. Eviota, CNT (NG).

The chapter was the Outstanding New JCI Local Organization of the Year in the Visayas in 2006 under the leadership of the charter president, and earned the merit for the same award category in the national level.

Past President Gelo steered the chapter in the following year to be adjusted as the 2007 Outstanding Local Organization of the Year in the Visayas, then last year under the watch of Immediate Past President Jolex Yu Lim, CLT.

Like IPP Jolex, the charter president earned the merit for Outstanding JCI Chapter President during the 2006 Cebu AreaCon even in its maiden year and earned the recognition for the same award during the 2006 Subic National Convention.

PP Gelo earned the major award for the same category during the 2007 Catbalogan AreaCon, and again now by his wife, the incumbent president.

She led the chapter while working as a nocturnal manager for internet marketing operations for Traffic Support, a business process outsourcing company, and while having to nurture her early grader son, Dain Angelo “Dindin.”

JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel has since its birth been giving prime to the individual development of its members, and has since been an award-winning program for nthe chapter. Earning the major award again in 2009 affirms such focus.

The “Read to Lead” project earned the Best Education for Peace Award for two years in a row in the area level and earned the national award last year in Dipolog.

Started in December 2007 by the incumbent president as project chair, it was pursued to expand the breadth and depth of the knowledge, skills and perspective of public elementary school children by inculcating to them the love for reading.

The chapter pursued “Bridging The Gap” with Omnilogy International last December to bridge the gaps of people separated by race, economic stature and education, a purpose that fits well the millennium goals of the United Nations.

It kicked off with START ‘EM activities, then followed by a “A Christmas Tribute” and “A Christmas Moment.” (Kindly click the links for details … c”,)

Meanwhile, this online portal, by its dynamic and “always fresh” contents, its journalistic approach as well as its neat and organized presentation, would no doubt earn the 2009 Best JCI Local Organization Website for two years now.

The judges noted that this site — www.jcicebumactanchannel.org – served well its purposes to communicate the value to and create value not only for the chapter but for JCI Philippines and JCI itself as a movement.

This has expanded the awareness of the chapter’s activities, and has provided the organization with an effective marketing and income-generating tool.

JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel submitted 10 bids for the eAwards system of the national organization for the 2009 Visarcon.
