President's Message

Liza Pinard
JLSD President 2015-2016

As we are halfway through our 86th year serving the San Diego community and one year into the three year strategic plan that will carry us into 2017, I am so excited for what is to come from the Junior League of San Diego (JLSD). As an all-women’s organization dedicated to training effective community volunteers, JLSD has provided the community we all love with tens of thousands of volunteer hours as well as incubation and support for numerous non-profit organizations and initiatives within the County. The powerful force of women working together is absolutely amazing!


The 2015-2016 year will see our second annual Solutions Summit, a unique type of conference focused exclusively on outcomes. By bringing together our non-profit partners for two days of collaboration, we can identify solutions to the gravest problems facing our County’s Transition Age Foster Youth. Our inaugural conference had tremendous success, with over 60 attendees committed to working on 7 identified solutions. We look forward to a year continuing to work on the solutions from 2014-2015 while simultaneously focusing on what outcomes we can generate for the 2015-2016 year.


I am dedicated to our membership, striving for each to connect with and foster a life-long love and passion for our organization. The talent, intelligence and dedication of our amazing volunteers are astounding. I am extremely proud to have been a member of JLSD since 2002 and look forward to serving our members and our community in the role of President for 2015-2016.

Thank you very much for your support of the Junior League of San Diego. I look forward to an amazing year!


With Warmest Regards,


Liza Pinard
