Transfer to JLW

Already a member of a Junior League? We welcome all transfer members and would love to have you be a part of the Junior League of Washington (JLW). Please follow the steps outlined below to begin initiating your transfer request:

  1. First, notify the League to which you currently belong that you would like to transfer to JLW. Your current League will begin the necessary paperwork with AJLI to initiate a smooth transition into JLW.
  2. Once your transfer paperwork has been completed by your current League, JLW will contact you via email with the next steps to finalize your transfer and your dues payment, if applicable. You can enter JLW as an Active Transfer or as a Sustainer Transfer:
    1. Active Members transferring into the JLW spend their first placement year as members of the Transfer Program and will be introduced to JLW and the DC metro area by the Transfer Committee. As a Transfer Active, you will have access to the members-only portion of our website, where you will find the requirements you need to complete to ensure a successful transition into JLW. At your Transfer orientation, through your Transfer Advisor, and on the Transfer Member section of the website, you will learn about the exciting activities planned for you throughout the year to meet other members and get involved in the Washington, DC, community. For more information, please contact
    2. Sustaining Members transferring into JLW are introduced to our League by the Sustainer Committee. Sustainer Transfers also have access to our members-only website, which includes the Sustainer calendar and a group-share space that includes information about the various Sustainer clubs and activities. Sustainers transferring into JLW are also included in our New Sustainers group, have access to view this group’s activities on the website, and are invited to participate in this group’s activities. For more information, please contact


Moving out of the Area? Please fill out a Transfer Request Form indicating your new address, desire to transfer, the name of which Junior League chapter you’ll be transferring to, and the effective date of transfer. 

There is a $15 transfer-out fee; you will receive a link to make your payment upon receipt of your Transfer Request Form. If you have any specific questions regarding the process or timing, email
