Your Commitment as a Provisional

New Provisionals are recruited beginning in the spring of each year.  The Provisional Course runs from August thru April of each year.

Provisionals are the lifeblood of our organization and will help strengthen and sustain it over the years.  JLB maintains its reputation for hard-working, committed volunteers by asking Provisional members to meet the following requirements.  Your Provisional year is your training for Active membership.  You will learn about the League's history and structure and by attending Provisional Course meetings, practice parliamentary procedure and meeting management skills.  You will meet Active and Sustaining members of the League by attending monthly meetings.  Your Provisional year promises to be among the most rewarding and fun of your League career.  

​ If you would like more information on becoming a member of the Junior League of Bristol, please complete the form on the How to Join page, and someone will be in contact with you.
