Transfer Membership

Transferring Into the Junior League of Atlanta

The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. cordially welcomes Association of Junior League International members transferring to Atlanta from Leagues around the world.

If you're moving to the Atlanta area and are interested in joining The Junior League of Atlanta, we'd love to have you! Over time, Atlanta has become an internationally recognized metropolitan area lauded for its progressive spirit and people. Since 1916, The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) has played a major role in expanding and enhancing the quality of life experienced by local citizens.

How to Transfer

To transfer to The Junior League of Atlanta, you must notify your CURRENT League. The procedure varies by League so check with your League, your membership directory, or contact the Corresponding Secretary for guidance.

Your League will notify the Junior League of Atlanta of your intent to transfer and we will mail you a welcome letter and a "New Member Profile." Please return the completed profile (along with any required payment) within 30 days so we can quickly complete your transfer and get you into an upcoming Transfer Education group (or a placement).

If you are due a refund from your previous League, please work with them to arrange for the refund. Each League is independent and there is no way to transfer funds between Leagues.

What to Expect After Your Transfer is Complete

Our League is one of the largest in the Association of Junior Leagues International with over 4,000 members. In order to make your transfer into the JLA as informative and fulfilling as possible we offer a Transfer Education placement to incoming Active members twice each League year. This is a wonderful opportunity to join with other Active Transfers in a structured program to learn about Atlanta and the JLA’s impact on the city. A member of the Transfer Committee will contact you about the upcoming Transfer Course schedule.

If you’re a previous JLA member (or if you’re familiar with our League’s structure, placement opportunities, leadership structure, etc.) you may also elect to jump right into one of our many placement opportunities! Please specify your preference when you return your “New Member Profile” form.

Other Leagues in Metro Atlanta

The Junior League of Atlanta is proud to be one of four Junior Leagues in the Metro Atlanta area. Other Leagues in our area include Cobb-Marietta, DeKalb County, and Gwinnett & North Fulton Counties. We would love to have you as part of the Junior League of Atlanta, but please check the websites of the other Atlanta-area Leagues as one of them may be closer to you.
