The Junior League of Champlain Valley (JLCV) was founded in 1985 by eight women and affiliated in 2005 with the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI). Currently, in 2016 we have 59 total members 38 actives, 6 new members, and 15 sustaining members.
A committee to review and update the strategic plan was formed in January 2016 and began with a SWOT analysis of the league as it currently stands. From there, members divided into three subcommittees (Community Projects & Volunteering, Governance, and Training & Social) and brought back their recommendations for priority areas, goals, and strategies as needed. Members met to refine the plan and it was presented to the general membership in January 2017 and voted in for approval at the annual meeting in April 2017.
Now that it is 2021, the Governance Committee will be planning a workshop for the January general membership meeting to engage the full membership in a SWOT analysis to identify our strengths and weaknesses, possible opportunities and potential threats. We will use the results of the analysis to identify key themes and goals. Each committee will be tasked with demonstrating through their budget proposal process for FY23 how they propose to address or reach for those themes and goals in an intentional way.
