The JCI Friendly Business Awards recognise the important role that local businesses play in the continuous development and improvement of our country. The project aims to award friendly businesses, ones that go that extra mile and provide outstanding customer service for their customers and their community. It is particularly important in this economic environment to highlight businesses that don’t allow their standards to slip and continue to provide quality services.
JCI Galway also launched their new corporate supporter package with 3 different packages available which will allow the business community in Galway to help JCI continue its work in the community.
