Nominating the Next JLW Leaders
It’s that time of year again! The Junior League of Washington’s Nominating Committee needs to slate 100 leadership positions, and they can’t do it alone. Nominating needs the help of the entire League to bring rising stars and great leaders to their attention.
Leadership comes in many forms in the League. Remember, there is a wide range of options and no prescribed leadership path, so keep an open mind, try new committees and encourage others in the League to do the same.
You can nominate yourself or others with leadership potential. Browse the Committee Chair positions and take note of the prerequisites and descriptions of each.
Are you not sure which role you would like to fill but are still interested in leading? Let the Nominating Committee know that you are “willing to serve” by filling out the general interest form. Assistant Council Director (ACD) and committee-level position nominations are due February 1, 2017. If you’re having trouble deciding or need advice, reach out to the current Council Director, Committee Chair or other League leaders for input. As a League, we want to ensure that the best leader is placed in the best possible position, and the current leaders are happy to answer any questions you may have!
Be sure to look out for our Leadership Spotlight Series all month to learn about the experience of being a JLW leader! #JLWLeadershipSpotlight
