- New Member Meet-Ups – The New Member Education Committee will host optional small group meet-ups once a month in September, October, November, February, March, and April. These meet-ups are an extra opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow New Members.
- New Member Spring DIAD – A Done in a Day (DIAD) is a special type of service opportunity with the Junior League that is essentially a micro-project in partnership with another local organization resulting in direct community impact. New members will have a special DIAD opportunity in January.
General Membership Opportunities
JLLC New Members also have the same general membership opportunities as Active Members.
