The Membership Council has duties vital to the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc. as it fulfills the “…developing the potential of women…” portion of our mission, as well as ensuring we have the membership strength to fulfill all parts of our mission and vision. This council is responsible for both recruiting new members and retaining the current members for our organization. This is done through a variety avenues, which include not only initiatives to attract new members, but also efforts to provide social opportunities, training opportunities, and assistance with developing member’s Junior League careers through placement. The Provisional team recruits new members and then trains and develops the members that are the future of our League. Membership Council members serve as a liaison between the JLNVB General Membership and the Board of Directors. They can assist members in presenting new ideas and resolving any issues related to the JLNVB. However, the primary job of all those on the Membership Council is to help members navigate their way to a successful and fulfilling JLNVB experience, no matter where they are in their League membership – Provisionals, Actives, and Sustainers. We do this so that we can ensure our League thrives and grows.
