President’s Message

Welcome! It’s an exciting time to be a part of The Junior League of Atlanta as we celebrate our Centennial Anniversary!

Deanna Anderson

Our Centennial is powered by The Junior League of Atlanta’s legacy of proven leadership. A legacy 100 years in the making and built on the JLA’s unique ability to connect our members and the community, act on tough issues and impact lasting change in Atlanta.

From the 45 women who first met on October 2, 1916, daring to form an organization in which they would stand up and make their voice heard, to nearly 3500 members of the League today, the legacy of the women of the JLA is in tackling the tough issues of the day, in particular, Generational Poverty, Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Early Childhood Education.

As we enter into this incredible Centennial Year, I challenge you to help us dream big for our second century of service – map your own personal Centennial year experience that highlights the JOY you find in service.

I leave you with a quote from an issue of Peachtree Papers from our 65th Anniversary,

“Who knows it may be our own Junior League of Atlanta that will be the impetus needed to bring the business, civic, cultural and creative leaders of our city together to become one of the greatest cities of the world in the 21st century! Atlanta, 2016, we’ll be here!”

2016 is here and we are ready to continue to be a catalyst for change in Atlanta. We hope you can step forward and help us as we enter this Centennial year of service.
