Did you know we are playing Match Maker?
Many of the community agencies with whom we partner seek Board Members with specific qualifications. Because our membership is filled with women of many different talents whom are all trained to serve as effective volunteers, the Junior League is a natural resource for Board Members. Through our Board Bank program, we match interested League members with community agencies seeking Board Members. The Junior League of Atlanta’s service to the community is extremely valuable and very much needed, especially in these difficult economic times. Some important things to keep in mind as you think about Board service:
- The JLA cannot guarantee a board service match for our members, even if we identify a potential match and submit it to an agency. Ultimately, the agency makes the final decision on who sits on their Board and that means they may choose to not select a JLA member.
- Board hours do not count for placement hours and are considered above and beyond JLA commitments.
- When you apply to serve on a non-profit Board, you are doing so as an individual, trained by the Junior League, but not as a representative of the Junior League.
How Members Can Apply
Login to the Members Only section of this website and go to Board Bank under Achieving our Mission/Developing our Members, or click here. There you will be able to view a list of available opportunities and to apply online.
For those ladies who are already serving on non-profit boards—the Board Bank wants to know so that we can determine the total impact that our members are making in the community. Please be sure to log in to your member profile and update to let us know any agencies that you are helping.
