The Junior League of Dallas is looking to its second century of service after celebrating the organization’s centennial this year. The Dallas group, which started in 1922 and now has nearly 4,500 members, aims to help women flourish and to impact Dallas’ most critical issues.
“We are as dedicated as we have ever been to developing the potential of women, promoting voluntarism, and addressing critical needs in Dallas through the effective action and leadership of our trained volunteers,” said newly appointed Board President Emily Somerville-Cabrera in a recent president’s note.
Somerville-Cabera says the group has a “bold new strategic plan” that will guide the organization over the next five years. The forward-looking plan is focused on three areas: “reviving the member experience, redefining community, and reimagining training.”
Here is the new board of directors:
Emily Somerville, president
Christina Eubanks, president elect
Isabell Novakov Higginbotham, administrative vice president
Jacqueline Wasem, communications vice president,
Katy Ratley, community vice president
