“Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change.” — Barbara Mikulski, Senior United States Senator (Maryland).
For 28 years, the Rising Phoenix Jaycees (RPJ) has served the community through a variety of service projects. Each of them have one thing in common: it began with an idea. Community development is a core mission of the local Junior Chamber (a.k.a. Jaycees) and we begin annually by collecting input from our community and members. This helps us to best plan and implement projects designed to create positive change.  The new year is beginning, and the Rising Phoenix Junior Chamber of Commerce is developing our plan of action. As a member of our chapter and/or community, we want your input!
RPJ will host a forum to discuss ways that the chapter can make an impact in the community. Topics for discussion will include:

  • What are the pressing community needs?
  • What areas are important to our members?
  • What should be our priorities in 2013?
  • Is there a specific cause you would like us to address?
  • How can we help?

Take this survey to get started in helping us to answer these questions! Through this process, we have helped and established relationships with many community organizations. With this forum, we hope to expand our networks and reach out to more groups and individuals seeking help. For our members, this is an opportunity to expand their knowledge on the growing concerns and needs of our community and get involved. The Jaycees concept is to develop leaders and teamwork through community service. Our members lead projects and benefit by being able to practice their project management and leadership skills learned at our various leadership and individual development workshops.
Hope to see you all at the meeting and the Membership and Community Forum. If you can’t make it this month, take a few minutes to fill out our survey.
