Welcome to WRJ Mid-Atlantic District!
A Welcome Letter from District President, Marilyn Morrison
Welcome to the WRJ Mid-Atlantic District website. This is your portal to see what we are all about. Our mission is strong and clear: helping sisterhoods/women’s groups participate effectively in the activities and goals of WRJ; assisting in the organization of new sisterhoods/women’s groups; bringing the sisterhoods/women’s groups into closer cooperation and association with one another to further their respective activities, and helping our sisterhoods/women’s groups achieve their highest potential. We are the link between WRJ and the local sisterhood group.
The District provides ongoing training, support, and hands-on assistance for our sisterhoods. Look around this site and check back often for new information about area days and other district and regional functions.

Time To Start Thinking About District Elections!
Exciting changes are coming to WRJ and the Mid-Atlantic District. Are you an innovative person looking for a new challenge? Do you want to become more involved with WRJ at the district level and be part of the exciting changes? Take your leadership skills to the next level and consider becoming a part of the WRJ Mid-Atlantic District Executive Committee.
The Mid-Atlantic District Nominating Committee is currently seeking women for the three-year term that will begin in March 2023. This is an excellent opportunity for sisterhood leaders, former sisterhood presidents, and women who are simply passionate about WRJ.
Positions on the Executive Committee are president, first vice president, four vice presidents, recording secretary, corresponding secretary, treasurer, membership secretary, and area directors. Updated versions of all the job descriptions are posted on the Mid-Atlantic Yammer site.
The deadline to apply is Wednesday, November 30, 2022.
Please note: If this is your first time applying, you may only apply for an area director position. If you are currently an officer or area director and wish to continue in your current position or apply for a new position, please submit an application.
The slate will be announced in December 2022 and presented to the delegates for voting during the Mid-Atlantic District Convention in March 2023. The term of office will begin after the convention and will end in spring 2026.
We hope you will consider joining our leadership team!
