Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” said Mattie J.T. Stepanek (American poet). This is exactly the same belief of President Ross. I believe JCI Dragon will do a good show and let members shine on stage in 2020 under President Ross’s leadership with slogan “United We Stand Together We Create” through impactful projects including “The 40th Anniversary”, “Youths Can Code”, “Climate Change After Tomorrow”, “Best Employee and Employer Award 2020”, “Dragon Appretice” and “Dragon Volunteer”.
