Patronesses

2018/2019 Patroness List The Palos Verdes Assembly is a non-profit, volunteer organization supported by the efforts of both members and parents.

We welcome parent participation as either a chaperone at our monthly dances, or you may apply to be a Patroness.

Please note, you do not need to apply to be a Patroness to be a chaperone at a dance.  There will be an opportunity at the September Orientation meeting to sign up to be a dance chaperone.

A group of about forty adults, collectively called Patronesses, administer, organize and host the activities of The Palos Verdes Assembly. Generally, Patronesses serve through the duration of their child's membership (usually 4 years). General Patroness meetings are held 5 times a year, typically on Monday evenings, and many positions require an additional time commitment outside of the Patroness meetings. Patronesses serve in two capacities: (1) in a General Operations position, and (2) in a Presentation Ball position. Patronesses are required to work a shift for the Presentation Ball, which is typically held the first Saturday in May.

Patroness duties include, but are not limited to, the following opportunities: Decor, Computer Skills (Website, Word, Excel), Email, Community Service, Photography, Event Planning, Public Relations, Legal, Finance, Videography, Administrative Writing, and Organizational activities.
