Advisory Council

Advisory Council is a group of leaders in the St. Louis community who are part of corporate, small business, religious, political and not-for-profit organizations. Their goal is to have these various leaders, each with their own expertise, help NCJW address issues, questions and suggestions relating to ongoing and future projects.

Advisory Council members act as our eyes and ears in the community. Coming from different perspectives, they have a unique understanding of individual and community needs of St. Louis. They meet twice a year for 90 minutes, where NJCW members present them with our current activities, ongoing projects and new issues we are exploring.

The Advisory Council is a vital part of the NCJW support system as we want to utilize the special skills, knowledge and networking potential of this group to further our mission statement. Members include:
