DP, Deputy President: Enrique Montano
This is my second year in JCI United and this years responsibility of Deputy President lies on me. It is truly a challenging experience and one in which I hope to learn a lot from! I like JCI because is a place where I can learn by doing, even If I have no experience at all. The rest of the members are quite experienced in many fields and it’s always great to approach them for help.
COM, Community officer: Christian Kutschke
I attended one of JCI United’s workshops about internationalization and got to know what their chamber is about. I liked the people involved and their drive to improve the local community.
As COM (Community officer) this year, my goal is to continue building relationships to local stakeholders (e.g. other JCI chambers, city of Tampere, Tampere ambassadors, NGOs, companies) and to search for opportunities to co-operate with those parties. It is great to meet new people and work together on joint projects to advance our region further. Learning by doing and being able to make mistakes or gloriously succeed are great motivators to get active at JCI.
TREAS, Treasurer: Antti Lehtinen
Hello, everybody! My name is Antti Lehtinen and I am this year’s Treas at JCI United.
I expect a lot of new stuff to happen in JCI United during 2018. I will be mostly taking care of our finances. I find everlasting development fascinating in all levels. In JCI United we aim to make a difference on the big scale, but meanwhile, people involved get also a chance to develop their own skills.
INT, International: Grigory Kharatidis
I am super-thrilled to coordinate global activities of JCI United this year. I say global because we dream big and aim to reach across oceans and continents. We already have good friends in Europe, and this year we will take our friendship to the next level. We also look forward to making new connections and starting new international projects. 2017 will be a big year for JCI United and for any junior chamber around the globe. Why? Because Finland celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Independence, which doesn’t happen every year 🙂 Onnea Suomi and let’s rock!
