WOMEN ARE LARGELY MISSING FROM AMERICAN HISTORY: WHY IT MATTERS & WHY IT
Joan Wages, President and CEO of the National Women’s History Museum will lead us in a dynamic, multi-faceted conversation exploring the lack of women in our national narrative and the challenges, and ever evolving assortment of issues girls and women face as a result. Join this webinar and be inspired as Joan introduces us to several highly accomplished women in history you’ve likely not heard of and the impact these women have had on the world. You will hear about the impact a womanless history has on girls’ self-esteem and career choices, as well as its impact on young boys, men and society as a whole. You will also learn about Joan’s dedication to raising public awareness of and celebrating the diverse historic contributions of women and her nearly 20 year crusade to build a national women’s history museum at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
DEMYSTIFYING BYLAWS AND POLICIES: THE BACKBONE OF YOUR LEAGUE’S STRUCTURE AND MANAGEMENT
Good bylaws and policies are essential to a healthy Junior League. They establish the legal framework, define the authority of the members and the Board, and spell out how the League will be governed and managed. Yet bring up the subject of bylaws and policies and you are sure to witness lots of confusion around what should be in the bylaws and what should be in the Policies manual. To assist, AJLI has recently issued a digital publication, AJLI Bylaws Template. In this webinar Anne Dalton will walk you through the AJLI Bylaws Template, illustrate the connection between bylaws and policies, help you identify how to incorporate the AJLI Minimum Standards into your governing documents, and cover the essentials of how bylaws and policies are amended. So come prepared with your League’s current governing documents. Together we’ll find the way to making these important resources work for your League!
