What is an European Capitals Meeting (ECM)?

The ECM is an annual meeting of Members and Senators from chapters of Junior Chamber International (JCI) from European capital cities. It will be a three days event that includes lectures, seminars, workshops, networking and social events. The number of participants is around 100 normally and the hosting city changes every year. The ECM is an opportunity for companies to market themselves towards future leaders and decision makers.

What is special about an ECM?

The ECM is not an official JCI meeting/conference. Although it is not an official JCI event, the framework for the meeting is more flexible and it is for the chapter that hosts the meeting to fill out the agenda with training, social events and whatever is deemed necessary. The topic of the meeting is set by the hosting chapter; it often tackles issues that are common for capital cities. This flexibility works so well that it found a hosting chapter and took place annually since 1993.

As with all meetings where there are “Jaycees” the ECM is also a social event where you meet new and old friends from across Europe. We have parties, sightseeing and cultural events – all designed to create the right “JCI atmosphere”.
