June 1 marks the transition to a new League year, and the Junior League of New Orleans is excited to introduce its 2017-2018 Board of Directors. The JLNO strives to make a difference in the community by promoting the potential of women through voluntarism and leadership development. The organization chooses its Board of Directors from its membership of more than 2,200 professional, compassionate women, who then lead the organization for a 12-month term. The Board is responsible for governance and management, and ensuring the League’s adherence to the Junior League mission, vision and strategic plan. “I am honored to work alongside the amazing women who comprise our Board of Directors,” said Kristen Cocke Koppel, 2017-2018 President. “I am looking forward to what we can accomplish when we combine our passion for voluntarism with our skills and expertise.”

As a group, the Board will set goals and policies which respect JLNO’s 93-year legacy and enhance the effectiveness of the League’s programs in the future. It ensures that the League has adequate resources to fulfill its mission and goals and executes prudent financial oversight, ensuring appropriate financial controls are in place and that the League responsibly budgets, invests and uses the funds at its disposal. While maintaining compliance with all legal regulations and ethical standards, the Board remains accountable to the community and operates for the public good.
