Transferring to JLSD

If you are a current Junior League member moving to San Diego, we welcome you to join JLSD to meet women interested in serving the community. It is also a great way to get to know your new home!

Before you can become an official member of JLSD and be placed on a committee, please follow these simple steps to ensure a smooth transfer process. This process may take up to 90 days, so we ask for your patience while our volunteers process your transfer request. 

  1. Contact your current Junior League to make an official transfer request. This must be done first as JLSD cannot accept you as a member until the transfer process has been initiated from your existing league. Reach out to the Membership council of your current league to ask for more details as each process may differ slightly from league to league.
  2. Once your current league submits the transfer into the AJLI database, your transfer information will automatically be sent to JLSD.  We will reach out to you to coordinate payment of dues, if applicable, and other important housekeeping items. If you are transferring prior to January 1 of the current league year, you will owe partial dues. If you are transferring after January 1 of the current league year, no dues will be owed.
  3. After your dues have been received and processed, you will be placed on a committee and introduced to your new committee chair. Depending on availability, you may be given an opportunity to select from a couple open placements for which best suits your interests. If a particular committee needs assistance, you may be placed there to help with the current projects as needed.
Within our Membership Connections committee, we have members responsible for scheduling regular social events for our new Transfer members. We want to make sure you feel welcomed into JLSD and into your new home of America's Finest City!
