Southwest Exchange



The Junior League of San Diego is honored to host this year’s Southwest Exchange. This annual conference is an opportunity for the Junior Leagues of the Southwest to gather and exchange ideas. We would like to invite emerging leaders for a weekend of learning, sharing, and networking. 

Over the last several years the world has changed and our leagues and members are facing new challenges. We will be coming together to Reflect, Reimagine, and Reignite to build a better future for our leagues.
