How Can I Become a Sustainer?

A Junior League member who has reached 40 – 49 years of age with three years of Active service or who, regardless of age, has contributed 10 years of Active service is eligible to become a Sustainer.  Many members contribute more than 10 years Active service, so don’t think you MUST go Sustaining after 10 years!
