From President Matthew A. Sernau

Fellow Jaycees:

As the seasons begin to change once again and we are one step closer to the new year, now is a great time to reflect on our accomplishments and to evaluate progress toward our goals.

This is a great time to refocus our tasks and energy on working toward leading our local organizations to success. It’s a time to explore what matters. Each of our chapters has a multitude of creative ideas and solutions to address some of the most pressing issues in our local communities. Our fellow members and chapters depend on each of us to give our full potential to making positive change.

This organization is much greater than any one person. As a group of committed members it is our job to continue to push ourselves and our chapters forward and closer to success. Positive thinking alone is not sufficient to create impact. The trick is to move from thinking to taking action. Taking positive action makes things and people better. It’s that simple, and all you have to do is take the first step.

Matthew A. Sernau
91st President
