“This provisional year was not typical due to the pandemic and was filled with many Zoom meetings, but it allowed me to be able to meet new people, make friends, and make connections during such a strange year,” Norman said.
JLOC is an charitable organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
“The league has been integral in the Oklahoma City community and has amazing projects for this upcoming year including working with Infant Crisis Services, Concordia Life Care Community, Sunbeam Senior Shelter, The Children’s Hospital, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County, the YWCA, and Pivot,” Norman said. “I’m especially excited about JLOC’s signature community project this year—Project Empowher—which seeks to empower women and girls in the Oklahoma City metro area by providing access to menstrual supplies and health education to help end period poverty in Oklahoma City.”
The Membership Council of JLOC appointed Norman as a Member-at-Large, a leadership position expanding her role in the organization.
“The Membership Council gets to help recognize members through awards and for individual accomplishments, help expand the league through the addition of provisional members, and welcome transfer members from other leagues among other responsibilities,” she said. “I can’t wait to volunteer in the Oklahoma City community, develop my leadership skills, and meet more amazing women from the Junior League this coming year!”
The Junior Service League of Oklahoma City was founded in March 1927, and affiliated with the Association of Junior Leagues of America in 1928 to become the Junior League of Oklahoma City.
