Congratulations toNew Baden Jaycees D. Michael Birchler and Terry Niemann for being recognized with Senatorship awards, the highest honor a member of the Jaycees can receive. The local chapter awarded these special Jaycee International certificates to the two men on the basis of their commitment to the local chapter’s efforts and the mission of the Jaycees.
The purposes of the Junior Chamber International Senate are twofold. Foremost, the organization seeks to build and promote fellowship among Senators through its publications, meetings and social activities. Second, but just as important, is to promote the Junior Chamber program by offering our assistance and the knowledge and experience of our members to the Junior Chamber organization. The United States JCI Senate stands ready to help the United States Junior Chamber and any local chapter, district, region or state officer. This assistance is always available for the asking.
A JCI Senatorship is the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a current or past member by Junior Chamber International for outstanding service to the organization. It provides a unique means for recognizing a member’s outstanding achievements and also confers upon that individual a “life membership” in Junior Chamber International, although this status does not exempt a member from paying regular membership dues.
A JCI Senatorship may be given to any local Junior Chamber member in appreciation of services rendered at any level of the organization and is subject to the approval of the local, state and national Presidents. Current local members must have a minimum of five years of membership before they may be nominated for a JCI Senatorship.
