Good Afternoon Westy!
I am sorry that I am a couple days late on delivering the Westy Weekly, conference this past weekend made it difficult to keep with the Sunday deadline. Speaking of conference, it was a BLAST. What a great weekend, with great people and amazing food/entertainment. The Frankenmuth Jaycee chapter did a fantastic job at putting together a wonderful weekend for all. I would like to congratulate Sarah Austin on her medallion and her David Lichwala Memorial award that is given to some of the top Presidents of the year (2016). Also a huge CONGRATS to the Westy Chapter for taking the honor of 5th in CLC (civic leadership Certification)! I am so very proud of our members and how hard each of you work within the community to continue our success.
Conference is an amazing opportunity to meet others from all over the State that are like minded. Having the chance to see all of the wonderful projects that are being created throughout the state is truly inspirational. I would encourage those who have not attended conference to consider attending the next one in May. If you have questions about the cost or how to register please let me know.
Reminder! We are offering a PMG (project management guide) training tomorrow at Club Westy. The PMG is an essential tool to running an efficient and successful project. Project management is one of the amazing training opportunities that is unique to the Jaycees, it is a great way to learn to become a better leader while having the opportunity to add Project Management Skills to your resume. The PMG allows an individual to take an idea and turn it into reality. Please join me tomorrow evening at 7 pm to get a chance to learn this skill or for those who already have learned how to write one, the opportunity to fine tune your skills.

Feeling Inspired,
Rebecca Markonni
60th President
Westland Area Jaycees
