Steering Board

The Justice League of WNY’s Steering Board handles the basic operations of the group, and arranges and coordinates events.  They take care of new member applications, costume reviews and approvals, and all other day-to-day things as needed. Our goal is to minimize stress for our members so that they can focus on the core idea of entertaining the pubic and bringing attention to the causes and charities that are important to us.
