Community Advisory Council

Junior League of Jackson
2021-2022 Community Advisory Council

The Council’s purpose is to strengthen the connection between the League and the community. The Council is comprised of volunteers from diverse perspectives, each sharing a common interest in the League, its projects and bettering the community in which we live. Members serve to promote and foster greater dialogue, educating and understanding between the League and our community, and to be advocates for the League.
