Have you taken a look atwhere you’d like to be in thisorganization in the next 3-5 years?For some of our newmembers, maybe this is thefirst time you have evenconsidered progressing in aleadership role in the Jaycees.I’d like to ask you to take amoment to consider taking advantage of what I believeis one of the bestopportunities I haveexperienced in my life.I’ve never been shy talking about my Jaycee experience.I joined a few months aftermoving to South Carolinabecause I wanted to volunteer in a hauntedhouse and that was about it.I did not understand theidea of paying dues to volunteer…but pretty soonthe people and the projectsgrew on me and I washooked.I have earned my way witheffort, but this organizationhas opened up generousopportunities.

News from our National VicePresident
With Thanksgiving in Novemberand the Christmas season justaround the corner, we haveofficially entered my favorite timeof the year.
It’s the time of yearwhere people seem a bit nicer, alittle more willing to give, a bitmore sympathetic to the needs toothers around them.
We begin tolook towards a new year with freshgoals and a sense of renewal.
This is the time of year when Ibegin writing our holiday letterfilled with pictures and stories of the adventures my husband and Ihad.
In doing so, I have anopportunity every year to look back on those pictures and reflecton the memories, and to really seeall of the reasons that I have to bethankful.
So this year as I begin our letter, Iwanted to share with eachmember of NVP team, Pay itForward, that I am so thankful forthe people in my life whoencouraged me to always believein myself and pursue everyopportunity which led to mebecoming a National VicePresident.
Without thoseindividuals, I would not have hadthe chance to meet the StatePresidents, and members fromeach of these states who haveinspired and motivated me, andwhom I only hope I taught themhalf as much as I have learnedfrom them.
This season of thanksgiving, stopfor a moment to reflect on what you are most thankful for andshare that message withothers.
Encourage those around you to do the same – you may justbe the person someone else isthankful for, inspiring andmotivating them to do more andseek out new opportunity.
NVP Jennifer J. Ray
