Sheffield Sweeps the Board as it is Named Most Outstanding Junior Chamber

2nd December 2011

Sheffield's Junior Chamber International (JCI) has scooped an amazing nine awards at their annual UK National Convention, including 'Most Outstanding Chamber'.

Out of a total 18 award categories JCI Sheffield won nine awards, scooping 50% of the total number of awards. JCI Sheffield will now go ahead to represent the UK at the European JCI awards in Germany next year. The Junior Chamber will be vying to win against European counterparts for six of the nine awards already won. Kate Senter President of JCI Sheffield said: Winning one award would be enough but to scoop nine is absolutely amazing! And now to go forward to the JCI European awards I need to pinch myself. 2011 has been a great year for JCI Sheffield. These are national awards and the win puts us streets ahead of some of our neighbouring northern cities, all with strong JCI groups, and even ahead of London. I'm so proud of the win and, I know I can speak for all of our members when I say that, being awarded the accolade of 'Most Outstanding Chamber' really is the icing on the cake. It is testament to all of the hard work that has gone on this year. 200 young business professionals from across the UK attended the three day event at the Royal Victoria Holiday Inn, Sheffield.  A Gala Dinner and national awards ceremony will took place at Kelham Island Museum as part of the weekend event. Junior Chamber International specialises in the personal development of young business people and professionals in their twenties and thirties by providing networking opportunities, training and social events.
