Ju­nior Achieve­ment Di­rec­tors Meet with the Pa­tron

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Wed­nes­day March 29, 2017, Pa­tron of Ju­nior Achieve­ment, Her Ex­cel­lency Dame Pear­lette Louisy, hosted the first Board of Di­rec­tors meet­ing for 2017 of Ju­nior Achieve­ment at Gov­ern­ment House.

The meet­ing was chaired by Di­rec­tor Kirt Hosam who called the meet­ing to or­der promptly at 3 pm. Spe­cial guest of the meet­ing was JA Alumni and 2016 Na­tional Car­ni­val Queen Tyler Theo­phane rep­re­sent­ing Fi­nan­cial In­vest­ment and Con­sul­tancy Ser­vices (FICS). Dur­ing the 90-minute ses­sion Hosam in­tro­duced new mem­bers Johnathan Al­lain and Anselm Mathurin and mem­bers were up­dated on the work of the pro­gramme for the first quar­ter, and the im­pact on the youth.

Dis­cus­sions about fi­nanc­ing, fundrais­ing and pub­lic re­la­tions ini­tia­tives were raised and mem­bers were given the op­por­tu­nity to se­lect a sub­com­mit­tee to pro­vide sup­port.

A core sub­ject be­tween the Pa­tron and mem­bers was ways to in­crease vis­i­bil­ity of the pro­gramme and it was rec­om­mended that a print ver­sion of the bi-monthly news­let­ters be placed at pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions.

At the end of the meet­ing it was clear that the JA pro­gramme will con­tinue in its man­date of of­fer­ing Saint Lu­cian youth an op­por­tu­nity to de­velop busi­ness skills that will help them through­out their lives. The Board thanked the Gover­nor Gen­eral for her con­tri­bu­tion and for tak­ing the time to meet with them.
