Reporting: Danique

January is reporting month.
As with most things in life, writing our reports seems to be one of those things that we wait until the last minute to do. This is the first year I am actually doing reports and I can honestly say that as much work as it is, I am taking it an excellent learning opportunity. Going through the more than 19 reports that we have to do, I am seeing how many wonderful things we can do as a club in the upcoming year. My wonderful board has been immensely helpful in preparing these reports and we have all been diligently meeting, emailing and calling each other to ensure the most accurate and complete reports that we can.

A little about reports:
All of the Junior Woman's Clubs  across the country are asked to report on their clubs projects, hours and money in order to give an overall picture of what we do as an organization. This not only helps at the state an national level but also gives us a running history for our club over generations. As an added bonus, the reports are all reviewed by the state board members and we have the opportunity to win awards based on our overall performance as a club in our membership category. Awards are presented at State Conference in May.
You can read more about the reports here:
