External Board Placements

Partnering with nonprofits throughout the Acadiana area is an important aspect to the Mission of Junior League of Lafayette. Each year, several Members of the League are selected to serve as representatives on the boards of directors of other nonprofit organizations. As volunteers well trained in nonprofit operations, Junior League Members can offer advisory support to these outstanding organizations. League Members understand how committees and boards function and work together to achieve a common mission. Congratulations to the women selected to represent Junior League of Lafayette for the 2022-2023 League year.
