Executive Summary

Throughout this League year, we have embarked on new initiatives and built upon the work we’ve already started, work that has been ongoing for the lifetime of our the Junior League of Northwest Arkansas.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • new ways to engage with our members and prepare them to be leaders in the League and in our community.
  • projects, programs and partnerships, as well as achievements and recognition in our longstanding community based impact area of domestic violence awareness and prevention.
  • financial and fund development activities that support a sustainable organization.

This Strategic Plan captures our vision and goals for the next five years. It showcases the initiatives we will undertake to advance our legacy of service, leadership, and community impact and continue to build an even better community in Northwest Arkansas.

Throughout the 5-year implementation of this plan, we will continue to explore how to capture and promote our organizational identity. How we share our story with members, supporters, community partners, and other stakeholders – past, current and future – will play a key role in the success of the League and all members as catalyst for change.

As we work to fulfill, achieve, and even exceed the goals of this Strategic Plan by 2021, we will also be advancing the legacy of our mission – service, leadership, and community impact will remain our focus.

On behalf of the Board, I am extremely proud of the work our League has accomplished to be the organization we are today.
I believe with all my heart that our League – all of our members – will continue to keep our mission in mind to accomplish amazing things in Northwest Arkansas for years to come. Through our program work, our trained volunteers and leadership in the community, we will always make a difference.
