On the chilly morning of 5th January, the newly recruited general members of the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Dhaka West started their fun-filled journey with the organization through the excursion at Reverie Holiday Resort, Gazipur with the rest of the existing Members, along with the current President Mehedi Hossain.
The day started with group energizer and exciting activities, after dividing the members into six groups through the distinctive sound and dance movement. Then, they were asked to write their team strengths into own name cards. This activity showed how one can assume their powers in different random group settings. Impact talks followed this with three members sharing how they came to JCI and what they achieved over time and how they see their future regarding affecting communities.
The team then went through many icebreaking and team building sessions to create bonds amongst themselves. The members, in groups then brainstormed project ideas and presented them focusing on the UN SDGs. Teams were then formed on the best approaches to be taken forward to the GMM as project proposals. The Immediate Former Local President and National Director, Ziaul Haque Bhuiyan, following some team building activities, then took a session on the history and interesting facts of JCI. The presentation was insightful.
The daylong sessions were conducted by the EC members of JCI Dhaka West, namely, Local Executive Vice President, Shaheen Ismail; Local Vice President, Imtiaz Choudhury; Local Secretary General, Abdullah Safi; Local General Legal Counsel, Rahbeen Masuma Rabbi; Local Treasurer, Seyed Mosayeb Alam; Local Training Commissioner, Samiha Akhter and Local Directors, Shamsun Nahar and Mohammad Mukhlesur Rahman Shohag.
The induction ceremony ended with a photo shoot wearing the t-shirt of JCI Dhaka West. 2018 National President, Fayaz Atiqul Islam, Immediate Former National President, Ahmed Ashfaqur Rahman; National Vice President, Erfan Haque and National Treasurer, Mir Sahed Ali also rendered their valuable presence to elevate the morale of the members and discussed further how members could create a positive, impactful change in the society. “Excellent Start Guys,” was how 2014 Local president of JCI Dhaka West, Sarajit Baral expressed his feelings about the induction.
