People behind the JCI convention.

KUCHING: Over 200 Junior Chamber International (JCI) members from various chapters in Sarawak attended a virtual convention organised by JCI Sarawak between July 31 and August 2 this year.  

“The actual convention, which was supposed to be held in May this year, had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Therefore, we decided to host the event online for the first time,” said JCI Sarawak chairman Thomas Teo on a statement issued on Sunday (Aug 9).

He said JCI members learned a lot from the virtual convention.

“Events covered during the convention included the opening and closing ceremonies, different training courses, quizzes, a debate competition, a public speaking competition, the presidents’ summit and the presentation of the first quarterly awards.

“The awards are presented to recognise individuals and chapters who have contributed and positively impacted the community,” Teo said.
