Here are 5 easy tips to help you navigate and use Digital Cheetah:
All Junior League of Chicago (JLC) members have a profile in the online directory, which can be found under the Directory tab on the homepage. The directory can be searched by name, zip code, placement or member type. Each profile has as much information as the member has chosen to share, but most include the member’s placement, address, phone number, email, employment information and birthday. Members are encouraged to keep their profiles up to date and add a photo so other JLC-ers can easily recognize them.
The Digital Cheetah feature we frequently use is the League Calendar, located under the Calendar tab on the homepage. This is where you can learn about and register for upcoming JLC events, or update an existing RSVP. When viewing the Calendar, you can click on the Agenda button to see a list of all the events you are currently registered to attend.
Details about Elective Points:
At the bottom of the homepage you can find a checklist with your membership obligations and due dates. While this list varies based on membership status, it will shows your points earned to date, as well as how many you still need to earn. A more detailed breakdown of elective points requirements can be found under the Resources tab on the homepage, which has a list of eligible earning opportunities for Active Members.
Seeing Spot App:
For JLC members who are always on the go, the Seeing Spot App is a lifesaver. It is available for both iPhone and Android smart phones and gives you access to many of features of the desktop Digital Cheetah site, including the directory, calendar, and groups.
Under the Resources tab is a wealth of Junior League information. Here you can find all current bylaws and policies that govern the organization, manuals, forms, marketing materials and more. Also found under this tab are advocacy papers, which provide details on many of our service projects.
