JLCU March General Membership Meeting Recap

web snip

Thank you to all the members who attending presentations and events with Vicki Clark last month. We hope she left you feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to work!

Look at What You’ve Accomplished!

Do you remember our September meeting?
We wrote down goals for our year in Junior League, and next month at the April General Membership meeting, they will be returned to you to see if we’ve accomplished our goals. JLCU’s goal was to keep you informed and excited about Junior League. Do you think we have been successful?

Done in a Meeting

Did you know that 1 in 5 families Champaign County cannot afford enough wipes and diapers for their babies and children? They often have to forego other basic necessities due to the cost of diapers. The Bottom Line Diaper Bank provides low-income families with the diapers and wipes they need, and BLDB needs our help! Thank you to all the members who brought in diapers for donation. If you didn’t bring a donation to the meeting, you can check out their website and find a drop off location in town.

The Elizabeth Alexander Spirit Award is for any new or active member who is dedicated to the JLCU mission both in JLCU and in the community. The Sustainer Community Impact Award is for a current Sustainer who has continued to positively influence her community using JLCU training. Finally, the Jen Smith Living Legendary Award is for any active, sustaining, or community member who demonstrates “living legendary” while being an advocate for a cause that betters the welfare of women in their community.

Who will you nominate? Submissions are due by April 21st and can be submitted through the website.
