Be Welcoming

Welcoming is not a one-time event. It is a continuous process and mindset that touches members on an ongoing basis. It makes the League a great sisterhood and keeps members engaged and committed. It is essential that members feel welcomed and at home from their first day and genuinely connected every day.

The new Welcome Program released in September 2020 relates to two critical issues identified in the strategic plan:

  1. Include (leave no member behind) and affirm (make members feel welcomed, needed and wanted), and
  2. Validate all members.

This document will assist you as you welcome new members to your parish council and encourage the involvement of all members. There are suggestions, ideas and resources for you to adapt and customize in ways that will work best for your council.
