District 1 Director Ashley Adams

Happy New Year Jaycee Fam! My journey to being the District 1 director started in 2012  in Big Rapids. I have represented our members as the VP of Fundraising, Membership, and the chapter, and served in 2015 as president. I look forward to working with our entire district!

District 2 Director Rachael Eerdmans

Hello, my name is Rachael Eerdmans and I joined the Grand Rapids Jaycees in 2011. I have served on the chapter’s board for four years including a term as president in 2015. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you in 2017. I hope to serve the chapters in district two as a liaison to the state board, as a sounding board for their ideas and a cheerleader for their efforts.

I can be reached at
reerdmans@mijaycees.org. Please be in touch and let me know how I can help.


District 3 Director Erin McKenzie

Cheers from the Mountain! Mount Brighton that is! Erin McKenzie here, your new District 3 director. I've been a Junior Chamber member since August 2010 and my first home chapter is the LIV, where I served as President in 2013. Next I felt my skills would best be used to help new chapters grow including my home town of Plymouth Canton (RIP) and South Lyon. I now live in Brighton, where I hope to launch a new chapter this spring.  

This year in District 3, we're going to get our (glitter) ducks in a row, grow our chapters and grow our impact. Many ducks make light work. Follow our hashtags and our adventures: #mijcD3 #glitterducks #webuildleaders #webuildnetworks
District 4 Director Dan Moellering

Hello, my name is Dan Moellering. I have been a member of the Rochester Area Jaycees since 2008 and a dual member with Petoskey since 2012. I have been on the Communication and Technology team for the Michigan Jaycees for the past four years and this year I am proud to serve as the District 4 Director.

D4 has a great group of people and I look forward visiting these chapters and helping wherever I can to ensure they have the tools they need to make positive impact our communities. We will have some fun "hanging together" as well. If you need anything over the year don't hesitate to e-mail me.
District 5 Director Christy Kuczynski

Happy New Year, Michigan Jaycees! I am a fifth year Jaycee hailing from Frankenmuth. I can't promise you that I will be a perfect DD but I can promise you I have set firm goals for helping you in your Jaycee path and will do my best throughout the year!

My number one goal for 2017 is your growth as a member.  I also will strive to make you feel you are a part of something great. The strength of an organization depends on its members. I'm here to build you. 
Take a few minutes in the next week to write a Jaycee mission statement. Whatever you write, your mission statement must reflect one thing: who you want to be as a Jaycee.

My personal Jaycee mission is to "Grow personally through the building up of others." Share your mission today on our D5 Facebook page!
