Rylee Davis brought Sue Solymosi, a mortgage broker at White House Mortgages, to tell about the Vernon chapter of Junior Chamber International (JCI), of which she’s President.  JCI started in St Louis, MO in 1915.  It has over 150,000 members in over 150 countries, including about 40 in Vernon.  JCI is a nonprofit organization of young active citizens age 18 to 40 who are engaged and committed to creating impact in their communities.  Members analyze local challenges, collaborate with community partners, conduct projects to find solutions and evaluate results to ensure sustainability.  Through four development streams -- individual, community, business & international – JCI clubs work on a wide variety of projects, enjoying teamwork, fellowship, & networking.  Aged-out members may continue their involvement as “Senators.”  National & international conferences offer members higher levels of training & exposure to global perspectives.  Vernon JCI members recently held a “Zombie Run” fundraiser, in support of Teen Junction.
