Did you know that among Junior League’s past presidents, you will find 3 winners of CFO's Humanitarian of the Year award?
“The Junior League of Springfield allowed me the opportunity to serve on my first nonprofit board. The League provided me with hands-on training on fundraising, meeting dynamics, parliamentary procedure, financials and nonprofit management so that I could be a high-functioning board member on other community boards and commissions. Thanks to the Junior League of Springfield, it was a very easy transition for me to become a nonprofit executive." -Morey Mechlin, 1997-1998 JLS President, 2014 Humanitarian of the Year
Did you know that Junior League’s members are active in the community? Many sit on boards of other organizations, bringing their strengths and experience with them.
“As the executive director of Springfield Ballet, I have seen first-hand the kind of strong, dedicated and active volunteers that involvement in the Junior League of Springfield produces. Currently, we have 4 members of the Junior League on our board and they are all deeply involved in making everything the Ballet does successful. One could not ask for better volunteer leaders for board service. Each of them is well prepared and understands their role in the organization. More than anything, Junior League members are unafraid to commit and take action to make an organization successful. We have seen this time and time again and are thankful for the support and training our board members receive from the Junior League. Thank you for developing women and empowering them to be a vital part of the landscape of the communities in which they live.” - Evan Bennett, Executive Director of Springfield Ballet
