Update: Mar 22, 2017
Dear Fellow JCI Members,
We would like to invite you all to support the JCIP Advantage Card Program now on its second year, which is a great opportunity to expose interested businesses to JCIP members and gain patronage among the 8000 members in the organization, gain JCIPEA points for your LO, and provide a project chairmanship opportunity within your LO.
Attached updated forms and the NT Circular. Last I checked, advantage.jci.org.ph is still under update maintenance by 2016 ND Joyce, pending transition to 2017 IT management team.
We expect that by the time merchants are ready to sign up, our website will have already been updated for 2017.
