On August 7th the New Member Chair and Vice Chairs, Erica Busch, Tiffany Hallman & Erica Zaretsky, welcomed 62 new members to the Junior League of Cincinnati at our annual New Member Brunch. The event included an introduction from our President, Kate Fortlage, as well as presentations from New Member leadership and the New Member Advisors. New Members broke into their small groups to connect and learn more about member responsibilities. The New Member Committee looks forward to helping these women find their place in the League and grow as community members. This year, we are launching a new model for New Member engagement, with their curriculum & training condensed into the first half of the League year, allowing New Members to be placed on committees and begin committee work in January to dive in during the second half of the year. This will help prepare them for placement in the spring. We look forward to our new members taking on more active roles within the JLC.
