JLCU Vicki Clark Training Recap

Junior League of Champaign-Urbana was in for a treat during the week of our February membership meeting. We hosted the fantastic speaker and trainer, Vicki Clark, for a series of sessions focused on being effective leaders for JLCU and our larger community.

Hearing Vicki speak about the Junior League experiences was really inspiring and motivating.  She represents the type of thinking that has helped this 116 year old organization evolve and remain relevant.  She definitely helped us understand where we have room for improvement as an organization and as individual members.  I believe our League will continue to grow thanks to her positive influence. – Jenette Jurczyk, JLCU President-Elect

JLCU 2016-2017 President, Jennifer Romine

Meet your 2016-2017 JLCU president, Jen Romine!

Jen first joined Junior League more than a decade ago when she was in graduate school as a way to meet women in the Champaign-Urbana area and learn more about the community. “I was in political science, a male-dominated degree program,” she explained. “I wanted to get more involved in the community and not be so isolated over at the [University of Illinois].” Continue reading Member Spotlight: President Jennifer Romine
