EAST CAPITOL PENSIONNE, BRGY. KAMPUTHAW, CEBU CITY (Sat. 30 Aug. 2014) – Answering the call from recently appointed acting Regional Vice President Angelo Daniel Parcon, the local organization’s 2007 President, JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel successfully hosted a Regional Council Meeting, a Regional New Members’ Orientation and a Regional Omoiyari Training a week before the 34th Visayas Area Conference.

IPP AngeloHaving just been appointed to oversee the administration of JCI Philippines’ National Programs in Central Visayas for the rest of the year, 2007 JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel President Angelo Daniel Parcon tasked his mother local organization in putting together a Regional Council Meeting to ensure that the Central Visayas Presidents would be informed of National Organization initiatives and to prepare them a week before the annual Visayas Area gathering of JCI Philippines.


To add value to the event, twin trainings were included in the agenda aimed at bolstering membership growth and membership development as Presidents were encouraged to bring along at least three of their members to the assembly.

Out of the 10 local organizations in good standing, 8 Presidents were in attendance while 1 chapter was represented by a member of their Board of Directors. Present during the Regional Council Meeting were Presidents Ken Ngo (JCI Cebu), Ryan Expeditus Andales (JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel), Holly Dawn Dychangco (JCI Zugbuana), Red Cabagnot (JCI Chocolate Hills), Maria Escabarte (JCI Boholana Kisses), Jessica Cabilao (JCI WoMandaue), Rajid Dela Peña (JCI Metro Cebu Uptown) and Rodencio “Fourth” Vergara (JCI Mandaue). Henny Sescon represented JCI Cebu Sinulog in behalf of President Queenie Gilig.


Conducting the Regional New Members’ Orientation is also a Past President of JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel in 2009, the Asia Pacific Most Outstanding Local Organization President in 2010 and the 2013 Regional Vice President for Central Visayas, Emi Rose Parcon. 20 aspiring members who were invited by the different Central Visayas local organizations attended the orientation with expectation of learning more about the Junior Chamber International movement and what it takes for them to become bona fide members of the organization.

RVP Emi asked each and every aspiring member questions such as who invited them, what they know about JCI and what aspect in their respective lives they believed is their passion. With that information in hand, she looked at how JCI is able to fulfill activities that are directly related to their passion. One important message that the New Members Orientation seeks to deliver is that one does not need to be an expert at something to be relevant within the JCI movement, so long as there is a willingness to learn and the willingness to be involved in the organization’s activities and programs.

Completing the second half of the twin trainings was a Regional Omoiyari Training conducted by a 5-Star Trainer for JCI Achieve and Impact, the 2013 Visayas Area Most Outstanding New Member and the 2014 Visayas Area Training Director in Rolly Abarro.

Well-attended by at least 20 JCI members from all around the Central Visayas Region, the Omoiyari Course is a two-hour course based on a Japanese concept of living in harmony with respect and mutual understanding that will inspire JCI members to become active citizens and work toward a balanced and trustworthy society.

As always present after a hard day’s work in JCI, the members then proceeded to Pink Resto-Bar of Metro Cebu Uptown 2014 President Rajid for dinner and drinks all in the spirit of fellowship.
