Galway is a medieval city steeped in history and culture, awarded the European Capital of Culture 2020. Voted the Friendliest City in the World and in 2015 ranked Europe’s Micro-City of the Year.

Produced by a voluntary committee, now in its 47th edition, is the oldest and best-known project organized by JCI Galway. Up to sixty thousand copies of this guide are distributed locally, nationally and internationally each year since 1962. 

Since the establishment of JCI Galway in 1961, we have served as a leadership training platform to encourage young people to be active citizens and create positive change in several areas including individual, international, community, and business.

People often ask me ‘What is JCI?’ and there are many different answers. In my opinion JCI trains the young adults of today to be the future leaders of tomorrow.

Junior Chamber International Ireland (JCI) has been active since 1957 and is a voluntary, world-wide, independent, personal development organisation for young professionals and entrepreneurs aged between 18 and 40. We develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of our members on a personal basis but also in the community, in business and internationally.

We have 150,000 members world-wide, across 5,000 local chapters and located in 100+ countries. The shared purpose, common vision and camaraderie among JCI members is palpable. No one who’s attended a European Convention or graduated from Leadership Academy would deny it. 

Our national and international conventions, workshops, trainings and awards programs, everything we do, is produced and directed by our JCI boards, ran by people just like you and I. 

If you feel the power of that community like I do—the power to improve places, connect people and drive prosperity—then you really ought to be a member of JCI. In 2020 we want you to be #InspiredByUs
