Community Resource Council

Our valued Community Resource Council (CRC) is comprised of community representatives who have volunteered to support the Junior League of Baltimore. They advise us on community-related issues and act as JLB ambassadors to the community at large. 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.

The CRC is comprised of well-respected individuals who live, work, or serve in the Baltimore community, individuals with expertise and skills needed by the League, and individuals who are decision makers and influencers in their circles and organizations.
