AUGUST 11-13, 2023


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…

65th Anniversary in 2022

JCI Halmstad is organizing the JCI International Crayfish Conference for the 65th consecutive year in 2022. 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.

The program for 2023 will be announced later.
