Junior League of Syracuse New Member Recruitment

Networking & Education

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

5:30PM – 8:00PM

The Junior League of Syracuse, Inc., a not-for-profit organization, is pleased to announce two

events in August for women interested in joining the Junior League of Syracuse. On August

12th and Aug 28th from 5:30-8:00 p.m. in the Ballroom at the CNY Philanthropy Center (431 E.

Fayette St.), women from Central New York will be able to ask questions, meet current

members, and learn about the schedule for the fall new member activities.

The Junior League of Syracuse is excited to welcome the first new member class of the 100th

Anniversary Year—a year that will be packed with special activities and celebrations. In

anticipation of the 100th the League rolled out a new curriculum during the 2018-19 League

year for women to have the opportunity to join in either the fall or spring. New members

participate in events geared towards learning about the different facets of the league, its 100

year history, and partnerships.

The fall new member class will help decorate for Holiday Shoppes - the League’s largest

fundraising event, join sustaining members in pie baking before Thanksgiving, and participate in

both monthly meetings and other volunteer activities that are voted on collectively by the group.

They will also attend monthly all league meetings, called General Membership Meetings, which

usually have a training focus.

League Founder Mary Harriman was intent on creating trained volunteers through the Junior

League so the Junior League of Syracuse Inc. prides itself on being a women’s leadership

organization that uses voluntarism as a mechanism for training and developing the potential of

women. Women who joined the League last year have already taken on leadership roles in the

organization and many women in governance roles including board positions of charitable

organizations through CNY can credit the Junior League of Syracuse with helping them to

develop their potential.

The upcoming events will be an open forum for those who are interested in learning about the

League and will not have a formal program. Women should feel free to drop in after work and

enjoy some snacks or come after dinner as they are able. Those who are interested in joining

but unable to attend should contact Caeresa Richardson, New Member and Recruitment Chair,
