Sustainer President Letter


Dear Fellow Sustainers,

It is my great honor to serve as the 2022-2023 Sustainer President.  Coming off JLD’s successful Centennial year, I hope you will join me in re-committing to support and engage with the League and your fellow Sustainers in the year ahead.    

JLD Sustainers are a diverse group of incredible women!  Did you know that there are more than 2,600 active Sustainers in the JLD, including seven members who are centenarians?!  Regardless of our age or stage in life, the one thing we all have in common is that we love the League because of the wonderful friendships we formed and the exceptional training we received as Actives.

To keep you connected and engaged this year, we have some exciting programs and events planned.  Some are educational, some service-oriented, and some are purely social.  Whatever your interests, my goal is to make sure there’s something for everyone!  And, speaking of interests, I hope you’ll consider joining one of our vibrant Sustainer Special Interest Groups.  There are more than two dozen options to choose from, and the interest groups are a great way to meet new people while enjoying an activity that you love. 

I look forward to seeing all of you throughout the year, starting with our annual kick-off event in the fall, which will be held on Thursday, Sept. 8th, at Headquarters.  There will be food trucks, giveaways, and opportunities to re-connect with your fellow Sustainers.  Be sure to watch your mail and your inbox for more details on our fall programs including a private tour of the Cartier exhibit at the DMA on Sept. 13th, a special Sustainer morning at the Kipps Bay Showcase home in October, a tour of Downtown Dallas’ beautiful parks on Nov. 4th, and a variety of fun and interesting lunch and learn opportunities throughout the year. 

Many thanks to everyone who has agreed to plan a program, chair an interest group, or serve on the 2022-2023 Sustainer Leadership Council!  It’s going to be a terrific year and I’m so excited to get started! 

Monica Christopher
