Amityville Junior League Committees
The Amityville Junior League offers its members the opportunity to lead or be a part of different committees by signing up to be a member of the committee or become the Chairperson. Being a committee Chairperson requires a little more time than just being a committee member. Committee chairs are required to manage their committee members and attend monthly board meetings. Board meetings occur once a month, every month during their appointed period (May-April).
