UPDATE RE: THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF MILWAUKEE’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The Junior League of Milwaukee remains committed to the health and safety of our members—and to the communities we serve. We face the ongoing challenge of navigating the COVID-19 global pandemic while opportunities for safer interactions with others emerge.
Our members are eager to connect with one another in-person for JLM-sponsored activities—and, understandably, look forward to events with our community partners. Current guidance regarding COVID-19 risk factors for public gatherings remains conservative, requiring thoughtful planning and responsible action. Therefore, in order to provide effective leadership to the League and maintain our commitments to our community, the Board of Directors and the Management Team shall continue to work collaboratively to define parameters for in-person engagements that adhere to all recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in partnership with requirements and recommendations from state and local health officials.
We also recognize that there are many ways to be of service to the League—and we shall continue to provide consistent, equitable, and accessible opportunities for our members to participate fully in League activities while remaining virtually-engaged or socially-distanced, if that is their preference.
To our Members, we shall update our guidelines and policies as the landscape of public health continues to change—making certain that we remain focused on our mission of developing the potential of women, promoting voluntarism with our partner organizations, and improving our communities through effective action.
To our Community Partners, please let us know how we can support you. For more than 100 years, the Junior League of Milwaukee has been a driver of change in the Greater Milwaukee area. We are 500+ members strong, united to address the challenges our community faces.
We proudly continue to serve.
