Becoming a Member
The JLG uses only the following criteria for consideration of a prospective member:
- She shall possess an interest in voluntarism, a commitment to community service and an interest in developing her potential for voluntary community participation
- She shall have reached her 22nd birthday before June 1 of the administrative year in which she will be a new member
- She shall be proposed by a current member of the JLG
Proposal. Proposal by a current member is the first step to becoming a member of the JLG. If you are new to our area, or if you have not yet met any JLG members, we are still very interested in having you join. You can review our website to learn more about the details of membership. If interested, you can complete the New Member Application, pay the application fee and send a headshot photo to the League office at email@example.com If you have additional questions about membership requirements, please contact the league office - firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 352-376-3805
New Member Dues. All Junior League members pay various dues and fees each league year. Additional information about member's payment requirements, please see the New Member Application. New Member payment can be made by check or credit card.
New Member Year. The "official" League experience begins with a formal training program known as the New Member period. The New Member training introduces interested women to the intricacies and expectations of the League. Meeting topics include JLG structure, history, organization operations, committee overviews, and facilitation and evaluation of the League's goals. New members are required to also attend a minimum of six General Membership meetings and meet other requirements (i.e. volunteer at the JLG Thrift Shop). At the conclusion of the New Member year, the New Member class works together to design and implement its own community project.
After completing the New Member year, volunteers can move on to an "Active" status and participate in one of the League's various committees.
