Community Resource Council

The Community Resource Council (CRC) of the Junior League of Baltimore was established to serve as a formally designated group of community representatives on whom the League can call on for assistance and advice on overall programs and or specific tasks or functions.

The purpose of the CRB is to advise the League on community related issues as well as to act as ambassadors for the Junior League of Baltimore 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 CRB 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.
