JLBR Town Hall on COVID-19

COVID-19 has impacted each of us in a variety of ways, and we understand you may have questions about how it will impact our work this year. We announced in June that a group of Active and Sustaining Members was working diligently to create a plan for how we can safely volunteer in community, fundraiser and in-league placements while in the midst of a pandemic. The Committee completed its report, and the Board of Directors approved their recommendations. Click here to review our COVID-19 Guidelines

We know you may have additional questions after reviewing our COVID-19 Guidelines. Please join JLBR President Norisha Kirts Glover and President-Elect Tristi Charpentier for a virtual Town Hall on Monday, July 27 at 6:30 p.m. This is an opportunity to hear about the precautions we plan to take during each phase for the safety of our members and community, as well as an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Questions must be submitted to by TOMORROW, July 27 at 3 pm for Monday's Town Hall.

We hope we are able to provide clarity as we move forward this League year and look forward to seeing you on Monday, July 27! 

Register here for this informative meeting.
