Alice Glenn brings a strategic mind and entrepreneurial spirit to The Junior League. She focuses heavily on developing and ensuring the organizational strength of the Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO), from employing data to drive decision-making and strategic planning, to strengthening and advancing fundraising efforts, to aligning League members along a shared vision and goals while challenging them to think for the future. A believer that experience is the best teacher, Alice utilizes her leadership experience to support new leaders in the New Orleans community while advancing the mission of her League.
Since joining the Junior League of New Orleans nearly 15 years ago, where she is now a Sustainer, Alice has served in a wide variety of leadership positions. Beginning as Development Committee Chair, she went on to hold several chair positions before becoming President, including Community Shift Chair, Provisional Chair, Membership Evaluation Committee Chair, and Membership Council Director. She is particularly proud of her work as President updating her League’s governance documents, including updating membership requirements and creating a set of volunteer leadership core competencies. As a member, she is most proud of her advocacy on behalf of her League to eliminate Louisiana’s “pink tax” on diapers and menstrual products, which passed the state legislature in 2019.

As an At-Large Board Member, she served as Chair of the Issues Committee, C-Chair of the Fiscal Accessibility Task Force, and as a Member of the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee.
