Meredith Lipscomb President 2014-2015

How long have you been a member of the Junior League?

Since 2007

What was your favorite placement within the League and why?

I loved being Board Assistant. It was my very first placement in the League and I learned so much. Getting to understand how the League was run from the top down really helped me understand the big picture and gain an understanding for strategic vision. It was an amazing start to my League career and I got to meet some of the women who would go on to become wonderful friends through the years.

What advice do you would give to the current members of the league?

You’ve possibly heard it a million times already, but it’s still SO true. You really do get out of the League what you put in to it. The more involved you become, the more meaningful your League work will become. Also it’s important to remember that not every year will be your best year. Some years you’ll have more to time and effort to give to the League. Some years you won’t, and that’s ok. We want you to be in it for the long haul and your years that are difficult or harder than you expected, will likely lead to more growth than your years that go really well. Always remember the League is a training organization.

What is your favorite thing to do in or around d Tucson?

I love to go out and enjoy the local music scene. There are so many great bands that play out in and around Tucson.
