JRCLS Leadership Orientation and Resources

To assist Chapter Leaders in being successful in their new role, the LDT has prepared materials that we invite each new Leader to complete as a New Leader Orientation, and we offer to all leaders for ongoing growth and development. Beginning in 2019, a one-hour review of these materials by Chapter leadership will be a requirement to receive the Quality Chapter or Outstanding Chapter Award.
  1. A special JRCLS Leadership Manual has been prepared to help new leaders navigate the ins and outs of establishing and operating a successful chapter. The manual is available in various languages including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian, and can be accessed here: (http://www.jrcls.org/?folder=chapters&page=chap_manual)
The manual provides guidelines on many facets of JRCLS Leadership, including:
·         Building a membership base
·         Organizing a Board of Directors
·         Planning Activities that serve others and promote Religious liberty
·         Setting goals to achieve Quality or Outstanding Chapter Awards
