June 9th: Factory tour of Gautier Mückstein & Ellinger GmbH

On June 9th we will visit an old friend from the Young Economy / JCI Austria in his production of essences and spirits.

Florian Mückstein lets us into his hallowed halls in the midst of ongoing operations. That’s why the tour starts at 3 p.m. and we can only participate in a limited number due to hygiene regulations.

We would be happy to invite you to be part of this company tour and ask for double reliability.

Florian runs the “Gautier Mückstein” in the third generation of the family, and has expanded the business field from rum and high-proof spirits to include aromas, essences and raw materials for the food industry. During the COVID period, the company was also quickly converted to a manufacturer of disinfectants.

During Florian’s tour, we will be able to see and hear the various production steps, as well as the automatic bottling plant in operation. At the end of the tour we will certainly be able to taste a few good wines.

Afterwards there is a joint visit to the Heurigen in order to be able to end the day comfortably

Get Together for Ukraine on 21st of March (update)

Alleviate suffering: Medical support for those affected by the Ukraine-Russia conflict

Please not the change of Date due to a Corona Case in our Core Team

The Austrian JCI Senate, together with the artists Nikolaus Eberstaller & Lucija Radwan, invite you to a benefit vernissage with the offering of works of art to benefit those affected by the Ukraine conflict by providing medical materials and aid.

Due to the complex situation and news coverage we found a lack of basic medical supplies in the Ukraine/Poland border area as well as within Ukraine itself. Alleviating suffering is our top priority and this charity event is dedicated to this goal. With Nikolaus Eberstaller we were able to win an artist who has already worked through the topics of war and refugees several times and will make limited prints available. Lucija Radwan has in the course of her artistic activity dealt with “horrors that have become normal” will contribute dry-point etchings.

We therefore invite you to this very special vernissage where we will collect donations and offer the artists’ works of art for sale. 100% of proceeds from both donations as well as art-sales go directly to the beneficiary.

Update: More artists have been willing to provide art for us
Current Artists:

Beneficiary: Polish Medical Mission
Intended use: basic medical care for those affected by the Ukraine conflict

National Conference Letter European Senate President

Dear Senators, Enclosed you will find a letter that ASE President Friedhelm Wachs wrote to us, as he could not be with us at the JW National-Conference this year.

Dear Senate President,
Dear Sigrid,
Dear Senators in Austria,

I very much regret not being able to be with you today, because the Austrian senatiors work in particular has won so fundamentally in recent years that it is worthy of every appreciation. What you have achieved together under Sigrid’s leadership is all worthy of respect.

Now I hope that, in addition to a good relationship with your juniors, you will also contribute to Europe.

These years of European future, in which we currently find ourselves, make us look back on the occasion of our international foundation in 1944. In a time when Europe was in ruins, young people met for the foundation of a kind of youth UNO, for the foundation of JCI.

It is therefore time for us, despite all justified criticism of the political systems, to adhere fundamentally to one goal: There is no longer any need for war in Europe. Social conflicts must be resolved, but civilized. Political disputes may be waged, but they must be civilised. Dialogue is the most important instrument for dealing with one another in a civilised way. If we do not manage to get to know each other and to work out the differences cleanly in order to be able to emphasise what we have in common, then we will encourage “brutalisation”.

At European level we have therefore initiated a change of direction this year, following your example. We are opening the Senate to the interests of all 12,000 senators in Europe. This is how we want to promote dialogue among ourselves.

We have founded Special Interest Groups and are open to anyone who wants to share their special field with others on a European level. The current groups are sailing, golfing, fishing, hunting, and trains. Here senators with same interest meet and share common activities. On our website www.jci-senate.eu you will find the contact persons.

Furthermore, we have set up a community supporting project in which juniors participate intensively: Little King JCI.
With currently over 67 translations, the story about our Creed has already surpassed Heidi’s internationality. With this story about the values and creed of JCI, we emphasize what we have in common, why we are all active in this organization, and why we were active in it. In our linguistic diversity, however, we also emphasize the difference that each and every one of us brings to the positive of the organization. As we collect not only languages but also dialects, you are still welcome to contact us at

Association of JCI Senators in Europe

c/o Friedhelm Wachs | Lortzingstraße 13 | D-04105 Leipzig | wachs@wachsonian.de

to participate in this project.

At www.littlekingjci.com you can find templates for a translation, at
also in German.

We need you in Europe. We need your cheerful openness, the constructive critical spirit which the Austrian juniors have already brought with their division into two parts to JCI, and we need your points of view so that everyone has a chance to be able to make the necessary problem solutions with knowledge of these decisions.

Thank you for your work, your joy in celebrating together and welcome to Europe!
