Change is not typically something that excites people. However, change is important, particularly in our current time of uncertainty. We should not fear change; we should embrace it. If we accept that everything is constantly evolving, we will learn to grow and gain new perspectives. 

The pandemic highlighted the power of our dominant spirit and ability to adapt and evolve rapidly and continually. We saw the emergence of a new paradigm around change and our strength to seize opportunities for personal and organizational transformation. 

As JLNO embarks on this League year, it is important to focus on our strategic plan to ensure sustainability, fiscal health, and commitment to our mission and brand.

I would like to thank our incredible Provisionals who chose to join our membership of over 2,000 women composed of working professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners and mothers all dedicated and committed to making an impact in the city we love and call home. This impact can be seen and felt throughout the city due to our evolving projects and fundraisers. It is my hope that you will join me in supporting JLNO fundraisers that make all our projects possible. 

Thank you for your continued support of the League and for believing in our mission. Each of you are truly amazing women leading for a Greater New Orleans. 

Gratefully,

Letter from the President

Shannon Brice, 2021-2022 President
