JCI Mauritius then known as Jeune Chambre Economique de Maurice (JCEM) was officially set up in 1980, operating as a French local chapter and won its affiliation with JCI at the 1984 World Congress in Montreal, Canada, with two chapters: JCI Port Louis and JCI Curepipe.
Since then three more chapters have been affiliated, namely, JCI Beau-Bassin / Rose-Hill, JCI Quatre-Bornes and JCI City Plus. Today, with five local chapters affiliated, JCI Mauritius has around 200 members and is recognised at national and international levels as a model Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).
Many members of JCI Mauritius have served at top positions within JCI – with Arnaud Godère as World President in 1994 and Marday Venkatasamy, Clairette Ah Hen, Henry Loo Chin Moy, Patrice Ferrière, Aruna Pulton, Ryad Subratty and currently Asha Auckloo serving as JCI Officers at international level.
JCI Port Louis also has members like Mr. Philip Ah Chuen and Mr. Michel de Spéville.
Building local, national and international networks, we draw on the experience of JCI former members who have succeeded in the various facets of life and who provide assistance when required. Representing countless occupations and skills, we are creative, bold leaders who are developing new skills, laying new foundations, and establishing new friendships and networks.
