Community Advisory Board

Community pinned on noticeboard


The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a group of community representatives the Junior League of Northern Virginia can call upon for assistance and advice on its overall program and/or specific tasks or functions. They serve as a sounding board and a resource to the League as they help to expand our network and increase our visibility with other organizations, businesses and the community.


CAB members should be well-respected individuals who live, work or serve in the League’s community, individuals with expertise and skills needed by the League, and individuals who are decision makers and influencers in their circles and organizations. The JLNV will strive for a cross-section of corporate and non-profit representation with an emphasis on people involved in vital community issues.
