Chief of Staff Melissa Greko - Jan

Happy New Year Michigan Jaycees!

I hope your holidays were filled with hope, peace, love & joy!
2015 brought me plenty of Jaycee Blessings as your District 2 Director.  I had a great time! Thank you for providing me the opportunity to meet more Jaycees and further my Jaycee career, preparing me to be the 2016 Chief of Staff.

For those who I have yet to meet, a little about me – I live in Grand Rapids and work full time for a company that produces consumer shows.  If you get a chance this winter, attend one –  My husband, John (aka our mijc finance director) and I have two beautiful and full of energy girls, Ashley (10) and Erin (7).  Like most Jaycee families, we are active in our church, school, community and on the professional competition bbq circuit.

As we enter this new year with an expanded membership we will be looking to everyone to find what you are passionate about.  We hope you use that passion to create and build on our foundation and continue to move our organization forward.

We have lots of great opportunities to show our Michigan Jaycee Pride this year especially with hosting the USJC Annual Meeting in September.  Support your Jaycees by sporting exclusive Michigan Junior Chamber gear!  Check out our pride shop and get your items today!

I am looking forward to seeing as many as possible at the February Year End Conference!

Happy January everyone!  I am super excited for the upcoming 2016 year! It is going to be exciting! Huge shout out to Steve Pickelmann and the Michigan Jaycees for being at growth in 2015! What an awesome year and everyone worked so hard!

The District Director team and I are looking forward to working with everyone this year! If anyone needs help with anything the DD team is a great resource. All 5 of these individuals are knowledgeable, willing to help and most importantly here to support you! I am also here as a resource whenever you need!

This year we really want to focus on the member. Making sure that everyone feels like they have the tools to succeed and to recognize those members who are doing some amazing things in their community.
