Transferring into the JLT

The first step in transferring is to contact your “home” League and request a transfer to the Junior League of Tallahassee. We are unable to begin your transfer without authorization from your original Junior League. You must have your Tallahassee address in order to begin the membership transfer process.

Once your transfer is initiated with AJLI by your home League, you will be contacted by the Vice President of Membership. You will then be asked to forward payment to include a $25 transfer fee and pro-rated dues.

Once payment is received, the Chair of the Transfer Committee will be given your information and will contact you. You will also receive your placement assignment for the remainder of the League year. Several social events are planned throughout the year for our Transfers.
