Winter 2014 Piper


Its time to lean in to the Winter issue of Piper, which is all about making the most of your League membership and acquiring the tools, confidence and support to make the leap into a leadership role. In this issue, youll find: 

  • Interviews with six past and present League leaders who share what spurred them to take on greater responsibility, what they learned along the way, and how those skills have translated into non-League life.
  • An insider’s guide to maximizing your years of JLPA•MP membership.
  • A sneak preview of the League’s Reference Library.

And, of course, our usual roundup of the League events and member news that kept us busy over the past few months (remember that casual little gathering at the Four Seasons in December?).

Our League was a founding partner of "Christmas in April," now Rebuilding Together Peninsula. We are pleased to honor the 25th anniversary of Rebuilding Together Peninsula and kick off our 50th Anniversary by designating our beloved Gatehouse as the project site! Roll up your sleeves to help us get organized and make a great impression by redecorating and fixing up our very own Gatehouse. Please help us recruit volunteers or prospective members by bringing guests.  Teenagers 14-17 are welcome to volunteer with a parent signed waiver and chaperon.
