About nysjcisenate

The New York State JCI Senate is an independent organization, with its own constitution and by- laws. Our members are JCI Senators, registered with the World Secretariat, who either received their Senatorship in New York State or who currently reside here in New York after having received their Senatorship in other states or other countries. The New York State JCI Senate is affiliated with the United States JCI Senate, and is also associated with the New York State Junior Chamber and Junior Chamber International. The purposes of the New York State JCI Senate are twofold. Foremost, we seek to build and promote fellowship among our Senators through our publications, meetings, and social activities. Second, but just as important to us, is to promote the Junior Chamber program. We do this by offering our assistance and the knowledge and experience of our members to the Junior Chamber organization. The New York State JCI Senate stands ready to help the New York State Junior Chamber and any local chapter, district, region, or state officer. This assistance is always available for the asking. We are recognized by the United States State Department as official Goodwill Ambassadors around the world. The JCI Senatorship A JCI Senatorship is the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a current or past member by Junior Chamber International for outstanding service to the organization. It provides a unique means for recognizing a member’s outstanding achievements, and also confers upon that individual a "Life Membership" in Junior Chamber International, although this status does not exempt a member from paying regular membership dues. A JCI Senatorship may be given to any local Junior Chamber member in appreciation of services rendered at any level of the organization, and is subject to the approval of the local, state, and national Presidents. Current local members must have a minimum of five years of membership before they may be nominated for a JCI Senatorship. The JCI Senatorship Enrollment Process An application for a JCI Senatorship can be obtained from your local Junior Chamber President, the New York State JCI Senate President, or Junior Chamber International. The application forms must be completed, approved, and signed by the local Junior Chamber President, then forwarded to the New York State Junior Chamber President and United States Junior Chamber President for their signatures, before it can then be submitted to Junior Chamber International along with full payment of the application fee. It is important to allow sufficient time (6 to 8 weeks) for the application to be repeatedly mailed and processed, especially if it is desired to present the Senatorship at a particular place and time. The application is not approved until it is submitted in the prescribed form, bearing all the necessary signatures, and a full Senate membership payment is received. After the application is approved, the individual is assigned a number and his or her name is entered in the Roll of Senators. The new Senator receives a membership certificate, a membership card, and a Senator's pin. These materials will be shipped to any location given on the application form if the presentation is to be a surprise, which it should be. Presenting the JCI Senatorship The awarding of a JCI Senatorship is an honor that can be bestowed upon a member only once in a lifetime. The actual presentation should be conducted with appropriate dignity, and preferably at a formal ceremony, such as an awards banquet. The presentation should be made by a JCI Senator, not by a member who is not a JCI Senator. If there is no JCI Senator available from the local chapter, contact the New York State JCI Senate for assistance with the presentation. Local chapter members may assist in the presentation. You should have the JCI Senatorship certificate, membership card, and lapel pin on hand. It is strongly recommended to enclose the certificate in a suitable frame ahead of time. Other Notes If the presentation is to be made at a New York State Junior Chamber state conference, let the New York State Junior Chamber President know well in advance so that an appropriate time and place can be arranged at the conference for the ceremony to occur. The presentation ceremony and receipt of the JCI Senatorship should be a surprise to the individual and a time that he or she can cherish and remember. Invite family and friends to attend, and encourage one or more fellow members to offer testimonials for the honoree with increasing levels of detail before announcing the name. Then, ask the JCI Senators in the room to rise, and welcome the newest JCI Senator. The New York State JCI Senate
