The New Member Course introduces you to life as a Junior League member and includes meetings, training classes, community volunteer shifts, and social events. Throughout this course, New Members learn to navigate their requirements, understand the League’s mission and vision, acclimate to the organization, and begin to find their path in the League.
As a New Member, you will be assigned a New Member Advisor (NMA) along with other New Members. With your Advisor as a guide, you’ll share your New Member experience with this group, attending projects and socials together.
For the 2021-2022 class, the New Member kick-off meeting will be held virtually on July 24, 2021. Super Saturday, as it’s known, gives you the opportunity to meet other New Members and be introduced to the New Member Advisors, leaders, and other representatives of the Junior League of Richmond. Subsequent meetings will introduce you to the organizational structure of the Junior League of Richmond and acquaint you with the League’s committees and projects.
A list of New Member requirements is included in this packet and will be reviewed at the inception of the course year by the New Member Advisors. The requirements are structured around giving you as many opportunities as possible to gain hands-on experience and develop an understanding of how we fulfill our mission. These opportunities involve our largest fundraiser, The Clothes Rack, along with other fundraising events, Done-in-a-Day (DIAD) community projects, Training Institute for Leadership Impact (TILI) courses, and General Membership Meetings.
