EngageJax is really an opportunity for you to learn what those changes are and how they come about, engage with who is working to make those changes, and most importantly, how you can act to make an even greater impact.
We share posts on a variety of topics, including leadership development, community vision, and opportunities to engage in the community. You’ll also get in-depth, fact-based views of important Jacksonville issues, overviews of JCCI programs, projects, and events, and details about what we’re reading and why. We'll also have an opportunity to ask some of our friends six questions - and share their answers.
We hope that you'll check back with us regularly. If you have suggestions on content, we'd love to hear it. If you have a comment or opinion on what you see here, we hope you’ll post it to our comments, and help us start meaningful discussions.
Today is October 1 and marks the start of JCCI's Fiscal Year. While, that may not mean much to the average JCCI participant, things here are still business as usual, today does mark two significant milestones for the organization.
The first, our financial year starts anew. Today is the day we look to a fresh budget. Our board and committees will begin to fulfill the strategies that are in place to meet and hopefully exceed our fundraising goals. Its also a great time to start considering your own annual gift to JCCI.
The second is more significant as it affects a larger group of volunteers and supporters. Our Board of Directors officially begins a new year of service with some fresh faces beginning to guide the organization and new leaders officially take the helm. You'll be getting to meet them throughout the year, with our Six Questions series and hearing from a few of them as guest bloggers.
Welcome to our new Board of Directors!
