JCI Sheffield is proudly running a 'friendly' debating contest between former and current members for the second year running! This idea came about whilst the 2015 President Mark Smith was chatting to former Presidents at the Lustrum Past Presidents Dinner in 2015.
Mark listened with surprise to hear that years ago, JCI debating teams consisted of 4 people (whereas nowadays its teams of 3 people) and they knew debating topics weeks in advance so could hold planning meetings - whereas these days, debating teams are told the topic they will be proposing or defending only 15 minutes before the debate starts!
Whether you are a former JCI member (alumni) or a current member, please consider registering to compete or at least come along and watch!
Last year the alumni team won so lets see if our current members can reclaim the title!
