This past year has been one of tremendous growth for me, both professionally and personally. I have had the privilege of serving as a president of a 501�3 non-profit tax status organization - the Junior League Palm Springs Desert Communities.
Our governing organization, the Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. (AJLI), is unique in that it does not allow us to hire a paid executive director to run the daily operations and oversee many of the little details that are required to run any kind of organization smoothly. All our work is accomplished by volunteers, even the disposing of our own garbage cans in our little office at the Berger Foundation Building in Palm Desert."
