updating guest list (together with MIC)
helping MEC with creating partnerships in order to recruit more members
Taking care of existing members can be done by asking their feedback and trying to communicate their needs to the board. Recruiting members is always up on the MEC team of how the strategy could be, but usually JCICI goes to different events of expats in order to create awareness of JCICI benefits. Another way is to market events on social media as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Therefore, it is crucial to update the guest list. Whenever guests attend our meetings, it is up to MEC team to be there to greet them and make them feel welcome. Afterwards, it is MECs responsibility to follow up on the guests and guide them through the process of becoming JCI member.
