Greetings Fellow JLCV Members:

Happy May! I look forward to seeing you all at our End of the Year Celebration. It will be a time to celebrate our accomplishments and discuss how we can continue to develop as a league. Included in this newsletter will be a survey that will help inform our discussion at our End of the Year Celebration. Members can fill out the survey ahead of time and we can use this feedback to lead our discussion. If you cannot attend, please do fill out the survey prior to our meeting so your voice can be heard at the meeting.
Our End of the Year Celebration will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Jenn’s home. Our discussion will be from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. We will pivot from our discussion promptly at 6:30 so we can have our awards ceremony and share food together.

This has been a busy year for the League. I appreciate all of the hard work and energy you all bring to the League! It has been an honor to serve as your President this year and I hope to see you all at our End of the Year Celebration.

With Love,

Jill Everett
JLCV President

It is hard to believe but it is time to start transitioning to your new role, which will begin on June 1! As part of the AJLI Fast Track plan that we are completing as a League, we would like to be more mindful about creating more sustainable processes and systems with the League which will make us more efficient and will help us grow! Thus, we are asking that every chair and VP who is transitioning to a new role meet with the person who is transitioning into that role and create a working protocol/outline of processes. These protocols will serve as a foundation of knowledge that we can continue to build upon year after year.

These protocols will look very different for different roles, but may include information like timelines, technical procedures, communication with other teams, etc. We really appreciate folks taking the time to do this- we think this will really help preserve important knowledge and reduce folks feeling like they are starting from scratch when beginning in a new position.

You can find the slate here to find the incoming chair/VP for your role.

We ask that you please have these protocols created by June 1, prior to handing over the role. In addition to adding these protocols to the Google Drive, please email Nicole with your protocol so she can create a master protocol binder! Email Nicole with any questions and thank you! 
Please complete the Membership Survey By May 21st. This information is VERY important for us as we plan for the upcoming year and we often make strategic changes based on the feedback and information we receive from the membership. Information from these surveys will be reviewed at the Board Retreat. 
FILL OUT The Membership Survey
Date: Sunday June 2nd, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Location: JLCV Headquarters, 3060 Williston Road, Suite 4
Details: Lunch will be included. 

Note: This is required for all 2019-2020 Board Members

We have two more distributions to go to round out our year -- one coming up on May 17th and a second one in mid-July. We continue to be on track to hit our goal of 100,000 diapers!

We have two repackaging opportunities coming up including one (as requested!) on a Saturday: May 9th and May 11th. Dates to support the July distribution will be added soon. 

Diaper drives continue to be our largest source of donations so if you have ideas of where to hold one or could organize one yourself please get in touch with Amanda.

Alternatively sharing our Amazon wishlist on Facebook also makes a huge difference.

We're also beginning to host outside groups; Vermont Commons has been to the bank twice in the last month! These additional volunteers take some of the load off of our shoulders -- if you have a group that would like to volunteer suchas friends, co-workers, girl scout troop, etc. please get in touch.

Thanks as always for your engagement and support.
For questions or more information, please contact Diaper Bank Chair,  Amanda Herzberger.
DIAD Committee Report

A successful DIAD event was recently completed at the Fletcher Free library.  Folding T-shirts for the Fletcher Free Library’s summer reading program was a simple and easy way to give back to our community.  Thank you to those that spent a few hours helping out so we didn’t need to cancel this commitment. We look forward to continuing our relationship with this valuable resource next year as well.  

There are two more DIAD Diaper Repackaging sessions scheduled.  If at all possible, please sign up for one of these two events.   

DIAD: Diaper Repackaging

Time: 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m

We’re getting close to closing out a successful year but we still need your help to finish STRONG!
As always, if you have any thoughts or suggestions for DIAD opportunities, please let me know. 

DIAD Chair, Carrie Mortensen.
JLCV member Wendy Mustapha travelled to the AJLI Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado. 

She posted pictures and updates via the JLCV Private Facebook Group, including:

"Day 1 of the AJLI annual conference has been eye-opening, energizing and encouraging! I cried, I danced, I had WAY too much coffee. Really happy to attend this year, and can't wait for tomorrow's activities. #JLCV #JLAC19 #WEGOTHIS"
"Day 2 of the AJLI annual conference is complete, and I'm beat. It was such a great day spent networking, sharing new ideas and hearing ways our little league may be small but mighty. I can't wait to share all I've learned. I took LOTS of notes. #JLCV #JLAC19 #WEGOTHIS"
