From Our President
As President, I have the honor of holding a front row seat to seeing the direct impact of the hard work our members do for the Kansas City community. This League year, we have hosted a litany of training sessions and partnered with community organizations for service opportunities and support through Community Endowment grants. We have an ecstatic new member class, a successful JL360 program full of emerging League leaders, and have begun to work diligently on collecting information to ensure that the JLKCMO is an inclusive organization. Our Sustainers have hosted several successful events through interest groups and sustained our League, and our fantastic staff have helped us to keep all of the plates spinning.
Our two oldest fundraisers, Holiday Mart, and Take Five, have both seem great success this year. Our newest endeavor, C3KC, also proved to be a strong contender in only its second year. These important events not only fund the work of our League in the community, but also give our volunteers opportunities to learn, grow, and serve. Thanks to all of you who attended or supported these events, which are critical to who we are and what we do.
The JLKCMO turns 105 years old in 2019, and I feel confident that our dedication to our mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community remains strong. The dedication, drive and passion of all of our members, from provisional to Emeritus, makes our League one of the strongest and very best.
