Body Parts and JCI Courses Vol. 1, No. 2 * 2 February 2009 By JCI Sen. MENNEN M. ARACID, ITF Trainer and Developmental Consultant Why bother taking JCI official courses? Think of it as exercise. If there are certain parts of the body you are not happy with, you can go to the gym and develop that body part. So it is with JCI. I can think of three body parts that will benefit from JCI Presenter, Trainer, and Designer. Heart, hand, and mind. JCI Presenter If there is anything that JCI presenter is good at controlling, it is stage right. It is a one-day workshop packed with at...

JCI's Most Exciting Role A Tribute to the Local (Chapter) Presidents Vol. I, No. 03* 30 January 2009 By JCI Sen. REGINALD T. YU, ITFTrainer, Inspirational Speaker and Author, Communicator  In Northern Luzon, near the mountainous slopes of Isabela, a working mother of three defiantly stood her ground. Her husband has forbidden it, but she was determined to assume her mandated role – for the sake of her dying organization. In Pateros, a young and bewildered new member was suddenly thrust into the chapter leadership limelight when her predecessor suddenly called it quits; on her carry-...

Defining the next step Vol. 1, No. 1 * 19 January 2009   By JCI Sen. MENNEN M. ARACID, ITFTrainer and Developmental Consultant Exiting in the organization takes a little getting used to. At 40, JCI expects any member to be ready to move on. Moving on, for me, means that I detach myself from so many things: being appointed to perform specific duties, “meddling” with my chapter’s affairs, running for office, and being asked to conduct training at the JCI world congress and area conferences. In theory this sounds okay. But when I hit that point, I admit it was not easy to a...

Bring Out the Invisible Vol. I, No. 01* 11 January 2009 By JCI Mem. IRISH ARONG RAGO, PG 2009 Vice President for Operations I was just entering the front door, a little tired from a day’s work when Brandt, my son was rushing and hugging me excitedly: "Mommy, guess what? I made several goals today and my team won! I remembered what you told me that I can help the team. I went after the ball and kicked it hard. You are right, if I think that I can do it, I will be able to do it." Wow! I was so amazed with the profound learning at such an early age and all because of a...

A Hint of Madness Vol. I, No. 01* 02 January 2009 By JCI Sen. REGINALD T. YU, ITFTrainer, Inspirational Speaker and Author, Communicator Fellow JCI Members, I’d like to welcome all of you to my very first “blog” – ever! And I’ve decided to name this occasional column “Table Talk” – in deference to the brilliantly simple, yet exceedingly effective method with which JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel has attracted potential members into its fold. If my modest column would just be able to inspire a miniscule fraction among many of these recruits to carry on the legacy of JCI’s TRUE visi...

2008 National President “signing off”

How active citizens must be made Rally behind 2009 NP Fulbert Woo -- Rip My one year as "NP" is nearing its end. Indeed, it was like a roller coaster ride where you just sit down and enjoy the adventure. The organization has had a great year and I'm just glad I was given the opportunity to lead it to greater heights. Having said that, the realization that we just can't sit down on our laurels and stop with what we already have has already rooted deep. The world continues to turn and a great lot has yet to be done and undone. And for us, being active citizens must be made in the spirit of a...
