An Organization of Former Associates of JCPenney


Text Box:  
Dear JCPenney Alumnus


Welcome to the JCPenney H.C.S.C. Alumni Club

Now that you have transitioned from the status of an active JCPenney associate, we would like to invite you to join the JCPenney H.C.S.C. Alumni Club. The initials “H.C.S.C.” represent Mr. Penney’s code of ethics: Honor, Confidence, Service, Cooperation – principles that helped build the great company that JCPenney is today.


Most of us spent many years with the Company, working hard while enjoying the camaraderie and friendship developed over those years. The sole purpose of the H.C.S.C. Alumni Club is to maintain the friendships made during those years of service with JCPenney.  The Club is a social organization, non-profit and non-political, whose goal is to keep former associates in touch with one another.


Any associate, (management or non-management) who retires or resigns under honorable conditions is cordially welcomed to join the National Club and any Local Meeting Group (LMG).There are 17 Local Meeting Groups spread across the country. You can find the LMG most convenient by visiting the National H.C.S.C. Alumni Club website, There will also be a list of LMG officers, application forms, and contact information. Please note that dues in the National Club and the Local Meeting Groups are separate.
