The Lexington-Rockbridge Jaycees, or Junior Chamber of Commerce, was founded in the late 1920s. Since that time our organization has helped to shape and mold the young professionals of the area by providing opportunities for our members; to become more aware of how to meet the needs of the community, develop personal and professional relationships with persons similar in age and by providing valuable information about professional, social and personal issues relevant to each member. Be sure to check out the members page of our website to see a list of officers and members.

How much does it cost?
