I am so excited to welcome you to the Junior League of Tulsa (JLT) 2016-2017 Provisional class. This year, we will get to know each other by volunteering and doing cooking classes at the Westside Harvest Market, learning about the League at our Provisional meetings, and socializing at fun outings and events. It’s going to be an incredible year!
Every woman in this organization has sat in your shoes and has a reason they joined Junior League. In January of 2008 I moved to Tulsa and after two years here I wanted to find a way to meet new people, use my talents, and give back to the community where I live. Joining JLT in 2010 was an avenue for me to do all of those things. JLT is committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community. It is the perfect organization to expand your talents as a volunteer, provide you with leadership opportunities, and deepen your love for the Tulsa community.
I encourage you to let JLT hone your strengths as a volunteer and then challenge you to step outside your comfort zone. Get to know your liaison, the women in your Provisional class and Provisional small group, as well as the members within your committee placement. These women have the potential to become your lifelong friends. Pick a committee that interests you and dive into your placement, and you will soon feel a stronger connection with our community and the League.
We know this Provisional year can be overwhelming but want to thank you for giving your time, energy, and enthusiasm to JLT. New members are what keep our organization going strong. It is our goal to make sure that each of you has an amazing Provisional year. You have joined a unique and inspiring group of women who choose to care about Tulsa and want to give their best to the women and children who call Tulsa home. On behalf of the entire Provisional Committee, welcome to the Junior League of Tulsa!
