The Prairie Jubilee Council

The Jubilee Program requires support and guidance from a group of people with many different skills and experiences.  The people on this council believe in the program and its ongoing success.  These people are contemplative listeners that hear where the association is and respect what it is called to do. They are gathered together four times a year to review the PJP program’s year and offer guidance if required. Anyone on this Jubilee Council is aware that they may be called upon, from time to time, to advise and assist the program if needed.

The three Directors of the program select these council members yearly. Members are selected by the gifts they can bring to the Prairie Jubilee Program. If they are selected they must commit to one year on the council.

The Council works contemplatively with the Program Director on the selection of program staff.  These council positions are voluntary.

-Creation and maintenance of a the PJA website
-Track, compile and oversee all financial and administrative tasks
-Tend to any legal issues
-Provide advice on organizational matters
