(scattered) (#1.1-22.6, FD.1-FD.2, F+D.1-F+D.2, OD.1, E.1), includes articles of incorporation and by-laws; administrative policies and procedures; annual reports; and minutes related to the Women's Coalition, an umbrella organization that includes the League and affiliated women's organizations. There is some overlap in the minutes of the Board of Managers, Advisory Council, and Executive Committee. Minutes of the Public Affairs Committee, the League's legislative liaison and advocacy group, the Public Relations Committee, responsible for the League's print material and marketing strategies, and the Ways and Means Committee, responsible for fundraising activities, are also included. Although conference materials are scattered and incomplete, transcripts from national conferences held in 1914 and 1916 detail the League's history and development, governing structure, and goals (#11.6-11.7). Additional organizational histories in the form of first-hand accounts are also included (#22.4-22.5). Conference material, yearbooks, by-laws, and standing rules of the Association of Junior Leagues, Inc. and the Association of Junior Leagues International, provide insight into the League's governance. Also included are numerous awards, certifications, and citations; invitations and program flyers related to special events and fundraising activities; and president's reports. The series is arranged alphabetically and chronologically thereunder. Folder titles were created by the processor.
