St. Maarten – The Junior Chamber International (JCI), recently elected and installed its new Board of directors.

During the concluded elections, President, Meandra Hazel, welcomed the newest board members to the executive wing of the non-profit personal development organization and wished them well in their one year term.

The new board consists of President Deidrae Thompson, Vice President Richinel Brug, Secretary Dwain Thompson and Treasure Janine Hunte. Meandra Hazel will remain on the board as the Immediate Past President.

“Despite numerous challenges that the organization faces today, I wish to do nothing but be an inspiration to others,” President Deidrae Thompson said. “Inspiration is an essential tool in pushing individuals out of their comfort zone to serve, impact and transform the lives of others in their circle of life. I hope to inspire you, like black America, inspired by President Barack Obama in his first postulation as president of the United States of America with his famous theme… “Yes We Can”, she continued.

Johnson thanked the organization and its membership for allowing her the unique opportunity to serve them as their president and she promised to do her utmost, maintain the JCI standards and empower them to be more effective in transforming themselves and the people in our community.

Junior Chamber International is one of the largest worldwide non-political and non-sectarian youth service and self-development organizations. It is an international community of citizens between the ages of 18 and 40 with the aim and purpose of creating positive changes in the world.

The organization believes that these changes must result from one taking “collective action to improve themselves and the world around them.”

While containing a religious element in their Declaration of Principles, JCI neither promotes nor engages in any religious activities. JCI meets on the last Wednesday of every month for their General Membership Meeting at the University of St. Maarten at 7.30 PM
