About ICC

JCI Halmstad are proud to welcome about 100-200 JCI members and Senators to Halmstad each year to experience traditional Swedish festivities, great fun, and some of the best locations that the Swedish west coast has to offer.

A brief history
JCI Halmstad is organizing the JCI International Crayfish Conference for the 62th consecutive year in 2019. That makes it the longest-running JCI project arranged by a local chapter.
Over the years, the JCI International Crayfish Conference has been held in various venues around Halmstad, welcoming a number of JCI members and Senators from around the world. What has not changed, however, is the event's focus on fun & friendship  - an opportunity to meet, learn and grow within JCI.

Curiously, the JCI International Crayfish Conference is even one year older than JCI Halmstad. How can this be? In 1957, the JCI organization was quite new to Sweden. JCI Göteborg, one of the first Swedish chapters, recognized the opportunity for another chapter on the west coast. To attract potential members a social event in the form of a traditional Swedish crayfish party was organized in Halmstad. Little did the pioneers from Gothenburg know that not only did they establish a new chapter - they also began a JCI tradition that still exists over sixty years later...

So after sharing some of what was previous known as the "Crayfish parties'" historical background JCI Halmstad sincerely hopes to...see you in August!
