President Peter A. Behrmann
I am excited to begin 2017 together with you, and make Michigan Together as ONE Team!
A little about me: My wife, Jeri, and I have been married for 8 years and currently live in Wixom, Mich. We have three beautiful children: Kayla, 3; Hailey, 2; and Cayden, 1. Jeri and I both joined the Livonia Junior Chamber in 2010, and are small business owners of a bankruptcy law firm in Livonia. We are passionate about assisting people get a fresh start and re-establish their financial well-being.
My goals for next year should be important to all Michigan Jaycees:
1. Together as ONE Team: Our organization needs to be a supportive organization that supports individuals during their successes and failures. This also extends to chapters as well, chapters need to be reaching out and connecting with other chapters to bring our state organization together as a stronger team.
2. Bring Leadership Up: Our state and our local chapters need to bring new leaders up and develop their legacy of leadership. Together, we can support each other and build on our leadership skills.
3. Membership Growth: We need to establish a long-term sustainable growth pattern and make it a goal for each and every chapter to grow their membership by 10 percent in 2017. We also need to concentrate on extending the Jaycee opportunity to at least three new communities that are not currently serviced by Jaycee chapters in 2017.
4. Signature Project: We have developed a signature project for all our local chapters to roll out across the state.This project will focusing on eliminating bulling, by addressing this issue in our schools and communities. Our goal was to find a project that our local chapters can easily adopt and produce on a statewide level.
I’m excited to meet this opportunity to lead you and the Michigan Junior Chamber and to keep us on track being a bigger and better organization. As always,I am only a phone call away at 248-730-5111 if you ever need me.
In Jaycee Service,
