Transferring to JLGFL

Hello and Welcome!

We are excited that you plan to transfer to the Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale (JLGFL).  We are a diverse group of members both native to the community and those who have transferred in like you.  We understand that joining a new League, let alone moving to a new community, can be overwhelming.  To help make this a smooth transition you will be paired with the Transfer advisor from the Placement Committee.  They will guide you every step of the way. 

Our headquarters is located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale and within walking distance to many restaurants.  Plus the city of Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding cities are a wonderful place to live. 

Please review the Policies and Procedures and steps listed below.  For more information about transferring to our League contact us at

Transfer of Membership

  1. Only New Member, New Member-Active, Active and Sustaining members shall have the privilege of transferring membership from one Junior League to another. The privilege of transfer need not extend to a person who has been dropped or expelled from membership by the Junior League to which the transfer is desired.
  2. An individual member of a Junior League who transfers to another Junior League shall be granted status in the receiving Junior League consistent with the specification of membership classification established by the receiving Junior League.

  3. A new member who transfers has the right to complete the training for effective community and Junior League involvement as determined by the receiving Junior League.

  4. New, active and sustaining members pay dues to the Junior League to which they belong on July 1.  A member whose written request for a transfer is postmarked between July 1 and January 1 will receive a refund of 50% of the annual dues of the sending Junior League, exclusive of association per capita dues. The receiving Junior League may then collect no more than 50% of its dues, exclusive of association per capita dues.

  5. A member whose written request for a transfer is postmarked after January 1 will not be entitled to any refund of dues from the sending Junior League, and the receiving Junior League will collect no dues, excluding the $40 transfer in fee, from such incoming member.

  6. New Member, New Member-Active, and Active members are required to purchase three (3) Paradise Served cookbooks directly from the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale the year they transfer to the League.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
