Our Mission The Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc. is an organization of women, committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.



ver heard of Sybil Ludington? She is reported to have traveled twice as far as Paul Revere to warn families of a British landing and to raise the militia during the American Revolution. Oh, and she was only 16 years old. So why isn’t her name in all of the history books? One can argue it’s because she didn’t have as strong of a brand as Paul Revere.

Kimberly C. Thompson 2010-2011 President Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc.

That’s why an education and branding campaign like “From White Gloves To Work Gloves” is so important. We need to let our community partners, our sponsors, our potential members, our friends, our coworkers, and our families know all that we do as League members. We need to get the word out about our significant impact in the community and become recognized as civic leaders known for rolling up our sleeves and putting on our work gloves. We will work this year on developing new promotional and education pieces – please let me know if you have any ideas from the creative side to the distribution side. I’m all ears! My Best,


White Gloves

They also cleaned and organized the kitchen, second floor and third floor storage rooms. Their efforts are greatly appreciated and have significantly improved the utility of the Taylor-Whittle House. Thanks to the HRSD team for a job well done!

An Update On Provisional Recruitment September marked the end of an exciting and busy recruiting season for JLNVB. Over the summer, JLNVB was engaged with over fifty prospective members either through our socials, e-mail, or member referrals. We are very excited about this year’s incoming class and the talented pool of women who make-up the 2010-2011 Provisional Class. We kicked off the recruiting year with our first New Member Social on April 27 at Burton’s Grill in the Hilltop area of Virginia Beach, which offered an intimate setting for potential members to learn about JLNVB. Our next social, held on May 23 at the Taylor-Whittle House, was attended by seven potential members as well as a number of Active members. On June 17, we mixed things up a bit with a social that incorporated a fundraiser. The “Southern Living at Home” Social allowed prospective Provisionals and Active members to mingle, learn about JLNVB and shop to support our mission all at the same time. In that same spirit, potential members were also invited to the August Accessory Swap and Shop fundraiser on August 21 at the Taylor-Whittle House. A special thanks to Sustainer Priscilla Trinder-Roady who opened her beautiful home and garden for a New Member Social on August 23. Transfer Nancy Wilkinson was on hand to share about her experiences in the Boca Raton League. Transition Chair Aisha Evans also extended an invitation to incoming Provisionals to attend the Transition Social at the Taylor-Whittle House on August 26. This year’s Recruiting season ended on a high note with our final event on September 1 at Gordon Biersch in the Virginia Beach Town Center. Even the “white glove” was seen “on the scene” at Gordon Biersch to welcome incoming Provisionals, as well as secure a few more recruits before the season ended. Special thanks to all who supported our recruiting events and helped create a phenomenal recruiting season: Hi-Ho Silver, Burton’s Grill, Sustainer Priscilla Trinder-Roady, Gordon Biersch, YOU-the membership, and of course, this year’s Provisionals!! We are pleased to announce that thirty-eight dynamic women have decided to put on their work gloves and join the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc. We give them all a hearty JLNVB welcome and we look forward to working with you! WELCOME TO THE JLNVB! Shon Johnson Provisional Recruiting Chair

Organizational Development Institute The Nominating Committee is soliciting applications for the Tampa ODI to be held March 1113, 2011. Four League members will be selected to attend this three-day weekend (noon Friday to noon Sunday) program. Organizational Development Institutes (ODIs), a series of Mission-based training meetings, are a critical component of AJLI’s training program. These training sessions are geared toward building the knowledge of League members who manage the League’s key functions. Delegates will come away with greater knowledge, fresh ideas and a plan to implement what they have learned. Participants will attend three plenary sessions and will participate in an assigned concentration track of one of the following: Membership Development, Fund Development, Community Impact, Building Internal Capacity and Electing Leaders for Tomorrow’s League. At ODIs, delegates build organizational capacity by learning about: • innovative approaches to developing Junior League members as effective volunteer leaders in their communities • powerful ways to design community programs and partnerships that have significant impact • strategies for sustainable and diversified fund development • keys to building strong internal operational controls • developing an effective nominating process to strengthen the Leagues leadership base In order to meet the hotel and registration deadline, applications for consideration to attend are due to Courtney Davio, Nominating Chair, on Wednesday, November 24, 2010. Selected attendees will be notified mid-December. The application can be found under the Training tab.

Members Making An Impact THANK YOU TO MULTI-PLACED MEMBERS AND SUSTAINERS! We have a number of members this year who are going above and beyond by taking on leadership roles in our League.

Our members provide the energy and vitality that make JLNVB a dynamic organization with profound community impact. JLNVB consistently strives to operate in such a way that allows us to work toward meeting the goals laid out in our Mission and Vision statements. Each Council, Committee, and position is an important component in the organization. Our membership, with their desire to give to the community, readily accepts the many challenges faced in running this well-respected organization. JLNVB members are leaders within our communities and they readily accept the leadership roles with which they are presented, both large and small. Leadership within the Junior League can take on many manifestations. It may come in the form of serving on the Board of Directors, accepting a Chair position, making presentations to other community organizations, heading up a special project, accepting double placements, accepting an Active placement as a Sustainer, or one of the numerous other opportunities that present themselves during the course of the year. The one thing that all of these leadership opportunities have in common is the willingness of JLNVB members to step in and accept the challenge. Few other organizations can boast this degree of commitment and enthusiasm among its members and we thank you all.

Over the coming months, we are going to share with you some of the leadership opportunities available in the JLNVB. We will give you an overview of the Councils and explain a bit about the Placement process. Our hope is that this information will help you both to decide how you envision your Junior League career and to increase your willingness to accept leadership roles when they are presented. Our League is indeed dynamic and our members are the heart of it. We, the Placement Committee, recognize and appreciate the time and effort that each of you contributes. We look forward to assisting you in finding just the right leadership track with JLNVB! Ruth Elkins Placement Chair

Lauren Hughes Placement Chair-Elect

Members Of The Month We had two Members of the Month for September: Aisha Evans and Kim Blake, who worked diligently over the summer to pull together a curriculum for a brand new JLNVB Committee. They developed a plan to serve Transition members of the JLNVB – Transfers, first year Actives, and returning members – and advance our goals of improving both member satisfaction and member retention. They also hosted a social and information session for Transition members and will continue with events for these members throughout the year. Thank you to Aisha and Kim Najwa Knox for taking on the challenge of coordinating a new Committee and for all of their hard work this At-Large Director summer!

“It’s A Girl’s World” “It’s A Girl’s World” was sponsored by the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc. and Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast for girls ages 5 - 17 on Saturday, October 9, 2010 at the Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast headquarters in Chesapeake. It was a part of JLNVB’s Healthy Kids Initiative and the event focused on developing the potential of whole, healthy, confident girls in preparation for womanhood. Activities such as a hula hoop contest, bean bag toss, a healthy snack station, a body drawing station and a yoga class stressed the importance of making good nutritional and fitness choices and having a healthy body image and strong self-esteem. Two state troopers were also on-hand to discuss internet safety and cyber-bullying and League members also led a talk with older scouts on images of girls in the media. All scouts received a patch custom designed by the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc. The Community Council is gearing up for more fall events. During the months of October and November, we will be partnering with the Food Bank’s Kids Café program to bring a mobile Kids In the Kitchen event to seven of their after school programs. We will be bringing the core Kids in the Kitchen values into the community in a fun and enjoyable way for the children. These events will be held at local Boys and Girls Clubs.
