Transferring 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). You must 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 to initiate the smooth transition into our League. Once your transfer is initiated by your current League, JLW will contact you by email with the necessary steps to finalize your transfer.

  • Actives transferring into JLW have the opportunity to spend their first placement year as members of the Transfer-In 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 needed to complete to ensure successful transition into JLW. At your Transfer orientation, through your advisor, and on the Transfer Committee 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 community. If you are considering transferring to JLW or are a Transfer Active with questions, please send an e-mail to
  • Sustainers 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 the current Sustainer Committee Chair Carol Der Garry and New Sustainers and Sustainer Transfers Coordinator Diane Lebson at
