Letting the new members shine Vol. 2, No. 2 * January 7, 2010 By JCI Mem. ANGELO DANIEL R. PARCON 2007 PresidentExactly twenty-five year sago today, I lost my father to cardiac arrest. His first, and unfortunately his last. I was seven years old then and words could not describe the grief and anguish that I had to go through in the first few days realizing that I won’t be seeing him anymore. Being second to the youngest, I was quite close to my dad. There was a time when our mom would be the one who’d accompany my older brothers and sister when they’d visit our mom’s hometown in Butuan Cit...

The Right Reasons Vol. 2, No. 1 * August 28, 2009 By JCI Mem. ANGELO DANIEL R. PARCON 2007 President It’s been awhile since I wrote my last piece here. This has been due to my work responsibilities as well as focusing on various tasks and duties helping in my little ways the cause of our local organization’s programs. And there’s also family time. Nevertheless, here I am again! A week from now, we will again celebrate and congregate as JCI members as we gather for our respective Area Conferences. From Area 1 to Area 5, brotherhood will once again be the focus of our proud organizat...

Reflections on a Journey Vol. 1, No. 01 * 05 May 2009 By JCI Mem. LORELEI "MAIMAI" M. DASMARIÑAS, CNTAsia Pacific Development Council Development Officer You’ve probably heard it told so many times... especially by old folks. I myself have heard it told many times over from generation to generation… according to urban legends… when one’s birthday draws near, one usually experiences extra ordinary things happening all at the same time. Today is my birthday… the 5th day of the 5th Month of the year. But twelve days ago, I had firsthand experience to what my ancestors have been telling me...

A Leader That Influences Vol. I, No. 02 * 16 April 2009 By JCI Mem. IRISH ARONG RAGO, PG 2009 Vice President for Operations It has been a good number of years that I lost touch of the Jaycee movement. The last time I was actively involved was when I was President of the USC Junior Jaycees chapter when I was in my 4th year in Industrial Engineering. Amidst its many challenges we faced as a team, we emerged successful, winning almost all if not all major awards both in the Area Conference and National Convention. After my term, I got caught up with a lot of school projec...

Creating a Culture Vol. 1, No. 8 * 19 March 2009 By JCI Mem. EMI ROSE R. PARCON2009 President I'm back. For somebody who talks and writes a lot, I've been pretty quiet on this blog for two months now. Part of it is not intentional. I've been trying to focus more on ensuring that the outputs of our Strategic Planning last October and our Tactical Planning and Evaluation last January are implemented the best way we can. But partly because, I never really want to write unless the message I want to convey is so strong, it somehow becomes an advocacy. Many things have been goin...

The true reason for success Vol. 1, No. 10 * March 12, 2009 By JCI Mem. ANGELO DANIEL R. PARCON 2007 President Behind the success of every man is a woman. Behind the success of every basketball championship is an iron-clad defense. Behind the success of every successful project is a well-laid plan. These sayings could go on and on about what is the reason for success in everything there is in life. Now, there is one I am very proud to declare to the whole world as the secret to the success of our very young chapter. Behind the success of every JCI chapter is the dedication and the ...

What brings joy in one's LOM Vol. I, No. 03* 25 February 2009 By JCI Mem. JOLEX YU LIM, CLT2008 President What brings joy in one’s experiences -- even journey -- in JCI through one’s LOM? For newbies, you might be wondering what a LOM is. LOM is our colloquial acronym for Local Organization Movement. We’ve been used to referring to our JCI chapter as LOM in our internal lingo but the international organization recently encouraged us to refer to a chapter as “local JCI organization.” The growth and development of JCI members emanates in their LOM. If an individual fi...

After induction, what? Has JCI lost its relevance? Vol. I, No. 09 * 21 February 2009 By JCI A / Mem. CERWIN T. EVIOTA, CNT, NG2006 Charter PresidentHELLO Everyone! It was just shortly after Christmas when we last wrote a blog. We were moving more in the “back-end.” I.T. geeks would know what that means, eh? Anyway, we're in the season of inductions, and this will run until at least the end of next month. We had ours in JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel last Jan. 29, and tonight will be the turn of JCI Cebu, my former chapter that we served as VP in 2001 and EVP in 2002. Only JCI chapters i...

The North Star Vol. I, No. 02* 11 February 2009 By JCI Mem. JOLEX YU LIM, CLT 2008 President I just came from my immersion trip with m/v Doña Rita, the passenger and cargo ship of Gothong Southern that plies the Cebu-Cagayan-Cebu and Cagayan-Jagna-Cagayan routes. Was it business, or pleasure? Purely business. I have to work while on-board this beautiful ship, even if it meant missing the moment to ceremonially turnover the leadership of JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel to JCI Mem. Emi Rose R. Parcon as 2009 President. The order of the day was to meet and greet the officers and crew of th...

Never back down ... ... in defending what you believe in Vol. 1, No. 9 * February 3, 2009 By JCI Mem. ANGELO DANIEL R. PARCON 2007 President You may be flexible on strategy, but must remain consistent on principle! From what I heard from the grapevine the past few months, it is not a secret that our chapter can be considered one of the more controversial, er, or should we say, a news maker to a certain degree, within our JCI circle. These issues involve our charter members, our roles in regional and area gatherings, accidental “discoveries” and our rabid methods to pursue what is ri...
