About JCI Fort Bonifacio Taguig City
JCI Fort Bonifacio Taguig City (JCI-FBTC) is one of the most active local organizations of JCI Philippines. JCI-FBTC is composed mostly of businessmen and young professionals living and doing business in the City of Taguig and neighboring cities.
JCI’s presence in the City of Taguig traces back to March 1975 when Jaycees Chapters from Paranaque Pambato (headed by JC Rene Cayetano, Herman Gamboa, and Jose Zagala) and Pateros Balut (headed by Al Tubig, Andy Conio, and RollyLua) visited various barangays of Taguig to conduct orientations and briefings about Jaycees and its programs. After several membership meetings, an election followed which brought about the birth of the Taguig “Taga-giik” Jaycees also known as the Taguig Global Jaycees. The Taguig “Taga-giik” Jaycees received its charter in May 1975 under the leadership of Renato Franco as President and Dionisio Garcia as Executive Vice President.
The Taguig “Taga-giik” Jaycees was on high gear from 1976 running programs, activities and projects for the community and extended projects beyond the bounds of Taguig working with leaders from other JCI local organizations.
Since the rebirth of JCI in Taguig in 2011 (from the then Taga-giik Jaycees) as JCI Fort Bonifacio Taguig City (JCI FBTC) under the leadership of its Charter President, Naresh Daswani, JCI FBTC has moved towards delivering development opportunities to our members, our business networks, and the community.
Today, JCI FBTC follows the tenets and ideals set forth by Junior Chamber International bringing in developmental programs in the areas of business, community and the environment, individual and people development, and international-relations.
