More Information on the New Member Provisional Class
The Junior League of Greater Covington trains a class of first-year members (Provisionals) to be effective volunteers and leaders in our community each year. Provisional members complete a comprehensive training series that allows them to learn about our League structure and programs, as well as experience some of our community programs first-hand that begins in August and concludes in May. There is also a financial component, however, payment plans are offered and encouraged as JLGC feels no woman should feel finances are a barrier to leadership.
Once a Provisional member completes their provisional year, they will be installed as an Active Member and get the opportunity to serve in a unique community, leadership or fundraising placement role within JLGC.
Additional Benefits of Membership:
- In-League Social Events (unlimited)
- Installation Banquet for New Active Members (After Provisional Year Completed)
