How to Reinstate Your Membership

The League you see today is because of the foundation created by our past and present members. As we quickly approach our 100th Anniversary, we want to welcome back former members. This year, we are waiving the reinstatement fee of $100 for anyone who wishes to join and remain in the JLA. Whether you will be rejoining us as an active member or a sustainer, we have a full line up of volunteer opportunities, social engagements, and training awaiting you. If you have additional questions, please contact Kate Kauffman at
