Transferring into the JLD

Have you recently moved to Dallas? Interested in transferring your Junior League membership from your former League to the Junior League of Dallas? The Junior League has a long history in the Dallas community for training volunteers, developing women, and improving the community. The Junior League of Dallas raises funds to build and sustain the nonprofit agencies we partner with each year. Annually, the Junior League of Dallas donates nearly $1 million and 120,000 volunteer hours to these agencies.

In order to transfer your membership you must contact your current League and ask them to transfer your membership to the Junior League of Dallas via the AJLI (Association of Junior Leagues International) e-Transfer system.

Please provide them with the following information:

• Name, local Dallas address and phone number
• Email address
• AJLI number
• Your current status (i.e. Active, Provisional, Sustainer)

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot initiate a transfer without a local address and your AJLI number. Transfer requests are processed through the AJLI online system. You will receive an email confirmation from AJLI that your transfer has been processed. Once your transfer is either initiated or approved by the transferring League, the Junior League of Dallas (JLD) will mail you a transfer packet from the Junior League of Dallas (JLD). The forms in this packet must be returned, along with the transfer fee and any required dues before your transfer is considered finalized by the JLD.
