Northeast Region Jaycees
On Saturday February 3, 2007 at Eisenhower Junior High School,
The Woodridge Jaycees and The Darien Area Jaycees hosted
a very special event for The Northeast Region Jaycees.
As every so often The Northeast Region Jaycees offers it's ROTS Training
for new board members of individual Jaycee Chapters within The Northeast Region. ROTS, which stands for Region Officer Training School, let newly elected Board Members of each individual Jaycee Chapter, get the training
they needed. Elections were held in December of last year and January of this Year, in which members of each Jaycee chapter voted for their Board of Directors. You see, each Jaycee Chapter in the Northeast Region has a board
of directors. "The Board" as they are commonly referred to, consists of President, Management Development Vice President, Community Development Vice President, Individual Development Vice President, Membership Development Vice-President, Public Relations Director, Secretary, Treasurer, State Director and Local Director. We wanted to provide them with
all the tools they need to be successful at their position for which they were elected to. So specific classes were being held at Eisenhower Junior High School for all the positions mentioned above, as well as Principal Training, which was a training for everyone, Taught by Garrett McNalley from National Jaycee Staff. Region, State, and National Jaycee staff taught these classes.
One feature that was held at this event was
a PR Day/Media Day. At this event,
The Northeast Region Jaycees let Individual
Jaycee Members in the Northeast Region,
which consists of 26 Chapters, the opportunity
to effectively promote their Chapter and develop
a good working relationship with the Cable
Television, and Radio Media. This event offered
presentations by some of the best Public Relations
experts in The Midwest and they offered suggestions,
ideas and helpful hints on how to get Jaycee
chapters message out to the public, including
one way; via the media.
This PR Day/Media Day featured an Expo. Exhibitors will include representatives from popular Cable Television Programs, radio stations, etc. Also at this event there was companies such as promotional items companies, Companies that feature fundraising, website designers, etc. We want to offer Jaycee Chapters resources to effectively promote themselves in the Community.
So this event is twofold, one learning how to effectively promote Your
Chapter, and the another, meeting the media and developing good relationships.
The Northeast Region Jaycees are a leadership training organization.
They Build Our future leaders through Community Service and the helping others. By helping others, they in turn help develop the skills they need to succeed in life.
So the day started out with everyone signing in and Principal Training for everyone, then everyone traveled down the halls of Eisenhower Junior High to find their specific training for their area. Then around 12:30pm everyone made their back to the main room and enjoyed lunch courtesy of The Jaycees, Italian Beef, Hot Dogs, Pasta Salad, the werks.
