The Petal Area Chamber of Commerce and Petal Jaycees have announced a new partnership. The Petal Jaycees will act as the official Junior Chamber and Young Professionals Network for the Petal Area Chamber of Commerce.
This partnership will help us to create a more engaged and active group of young professional in our Chamber and community. The Petal Area chamber of Commerce recognizes the need for leadership and growth opportunities for young professionals in the Petal area. It also realizes that the Jaycee organization was founded to do just that, as the Junior Chamber (JC) it promotes the leadership skills within each member utilizing Management, Individual, Community and Membership development. Rather that duplicating the programs that the Jaycee organization has 97 years of history in accomplishing these goals, the Petal Area Chamber of Commerce would like to promote the Petal Jaycee chapter as its Young Professional program in order to develop the future leaders of Petal, as well as to support an organization that commits to the betterment of our community.
The Petal Jaycees are actively recruiting young citizens ages 18-40 with energy and insight to become a part of their organization.
This partnership is going to be a valuable benefit to members of both organizations. It will provide many opportunities to the up-and-coming generation of business and community leaders while providing meaningful relationships with the established network of Chamber members. The Petal Jaycees will have access to all chamber events to promote the Jaycee organization. In addition, the chamber will help promote the Petal Jaycee events through its website, Facebook, and newsletter.
The Petal Jaycees will make a yearlong commitment to a community project in Petal and donate at least 50 hours of service throughout the year. It’s definitely a WIN-WIN situation. Interested individuals may call 601-909-8022 for more information. You may also find them on Facebook at Petal Jaycees.
We are looking forward to working together for Petal!
