Good Evening Westy!
I’m filling in this week as our President is on her way back from Leadership Training University (LTU) in Chicago! LTU is just one of the many opportunities offered by our organization aimed at helping our members learn and develop new skills. I can’t wait to hear about what was learned!
There are a couple of skill building opportunities just next month. On March 11th there will be a training day in Lansing which includes Impact training, Effective Leadership and Effective Meetings as well as lunch and the opportunity to meet Jaycees from all over the state. On March 17th we have the opportunity to learn about “Dealing with Difficult People” from Jay Johnson. Jay was the 90th Michigan Jaycees President and is the current First Gentleman of the Redford Chapter.
While Madam President was away some of our members were able to spend some time getting to know our First Gentleman Brian over breakfast. Keep an eye out as he’ll be repeating the event in a few months.
A quick reminder that our General Member Meeting is this Tuesday at the Wayne Ford Civic League at 7PM.

Looking forward to learning with you,
Courtney Scott
2017 Secretary
Westland Area Jaycees
