US JCI Senate Officers 2019-2020


Dave DeLaney #41203

Region VI National Vice President

     Welcome everyone to another great year in Region VI !! Serving the states of Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. I am very honored to represent the Missouri JCI Senate and the rest of Region VI as our US JCI Senate National Vice President for 2019-2020. Missouri has previously had 11 NVPs over the years. They are (in alphabetical order), Donna DeLaney #55560, Susan Hatcher #58143, Tom Hendrix #37317, Jerry Jackson #27029, Randy Johnson #56636, Mike Moritz #28428, Earl Sawyer #28243, Mary Sawyer #43930, Bill Smith Jr. #38430, LeaAnn Smith #59833, and Bill Vishy #23120. They are fine examples of the leadership we have enjoyed in our Region over the years.

     My theme comes from the fact that we are all ‘CRAZY !” Crazy about our states and chapters, crazy about our families and friends, crazy about our Veterans, crazy about our projects and everyone that we help. The other half relates to the fact that I am from Moberly in North Central Missouri. I was a Moberly Jaycee. Moberly was/is a railroad town. In fact, it is on the map today because of the Wabash Railroad. When the Wabash decided to build its northern route from Detroit to Chicago to Hannibal to Kansas City, where it crossed Highway 63 was in question. 63 at that time wasn’t much more than a dirt road. So when the location was selected, the town of Moberly grew quickly and became known as the “Magic City!” A term still used today.

     I am looking forward to working with Missouri Senate President Chris Deen #73300 and also Missouri Jaycee President Shanna Heard for the remainder of her year, as we travel to projects and meetings. Come along and get on the train. If anyone would like to travel along on our trips to the other Region VI states or to other Regions, Donna and I would be happy for you to come along to take in the many sites and meet the many current friends that we have made over the years. Many new friendships will be made as well. This is one of the benefits of being a Senator, you will make friendships across the country that will last a lifetime if you get out and travel.

     We hope to see you all at the Missouri Jaycees Access Day at the State Fair in Sedalia, the Missouri JCI Senate Fall Meeting in Springfield, the US JCI Senate Fall BOD Meeting in Kansas City, the combined Missouri Jaycees/Senate Meetings in Camdenton, and at many other meetings and/or projects throughout the year.

     As you can see, Missouri as well as all of Region VI is “on the right track” for another great year. Join us as we “Ride The Crazy Train” to all stops along the way.

something you're tremendously passionate about."  ~Steve Pavlina

Logo 2019 2020a     Welcome to the 48th Administrative Year of the US JCI Senate. This E-blast newsletter is designed to share valuable information about our organization’s activities, meeting dates, important forms, members’ life events and timely updates. The US JCI Senate consists of approximately 8,000 members throughout 50 states and the District of Columbia. However, only a quarter of our membership currently receive this bimonthly newsletter. It is a great source of information for the Senators. A goal I have this year is to have about 75% of our members receiving this communication. If you are aware of members that are not receiving the E-blast newsletter, I encourage you to share it with them and have them to submit their email address to the E-blast editor.

     Our purpose as Senators is to assist and mentor the Jaycees, support our Senate Foundation, which bestows college scholarships to graduating seniors, while promoting fellowship among its members. The US JCI Senate organization draws its strength from its members, a group of individuals bound together by a common purpose: “To foster friendship among Senators while supporting the Jaycee Movement”. This drives every Senator and is fueled by the passion to give back to an organization that provided training, individual development skills and allowed us the opportunity to meet people around the country and the world.

     I ask every Senator to join together this year and share in a vision dedicated to “PEOPLE, PURPOSE, PASSION”.  Our members possess a strong belief in our organization and the words found in the Jaycee Creed and our Mission statement. But to be successful we must share the passion for our organization with others who have received a Senatorship but remain inactive. We should encourage them to return and let them know that we are stronger with them than we could ever be without them.

     Thank you for placing your trust and confidence in electing me as your 48th president. I am looking forward to the opportunities that the year will bring and I will strive to do my best to serve this organization and its members.

     Yours in the Senate Spirit!

US JCI Senate


The United States JCI Senate is an independent organization, with its own constitution and bylaws, associated with the United States Junior Chamber and Junior Chamber International.

The purposes of the US JCI Senate are twofold. Foremost, we seek to build and promote fellowship among our Senators through our publications, meetings, and social activities. Second, but just as important to us, is to promote the Junior Chamber program. We do this by offering our assistance and the knowledge and experience of our members to the Junior Chamber organization. The United Stats JCI Senate stands ready to help the United States Junior Chamber and any local chapter, district, region, or state officer. This assistance is always available for the asking.

A JCI Senatorship is the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a current or past member by Junior Chamber International for outstanding service to the organization. It provides a unique means for recognizing a member’s outstanding achievements, and also confers upon that individual a “Life Membership” in Junior Chamber International, although this status does not exempt a member from paying regular membership dues.

A JCI Senatorship may be given to any local Junior Chamber member in appreciation of services rendered at any level of the organization, and is subject to the approval of the local, state, and national Presidents. Current local members must have a minimum of five years of membership before they may be nominated for a JCI Senatorship.

US JCI Senators are recognized by the US State Department as official Goodwill Ambassadors around the world.
