Transfer to the JLR

If you are moving to the Richmond area and are interested in transferring from your current League to the Junior League of Richmond, we would love to have you!

Transferring into Junior League of Richmond (JLR) is a great opportunity for you to meet new friends and make connections within the RVA community. We want to make your transition to our League, and the Richmond area, as seamless as possible.

“The transfer committee was a really fun way to learn everything about the Richmond League! I really enjoyed my small group because I was able to become fast friends with women new to the city. I even remained on the committee for a second year so I could meet more women in Richmond!” -Emily B.

During your transfer year, you will learn about JLR’s long history of voluntarism and the impact the League has had on the City of Richmond. You will be able to continue to develop your talents as a leader and put these skills to
work to improve the lives of women and girls in our community.


How to transfer to the Junior League of Richmond:

  • You must notify your CURRENT League. The procedure varies by League so check with your current League (or the last League you held active membership in) for guidance.
  • Your League will notify the Junior League of Richmond of your intent to transfer
  • We will contact you with information on dues, next steps, and a questionnaire so we can get to know you.

Our Transfer Committee plans a variety of fun and educational activities to help you navigate through your first year in the League and in Richmond. Your Transfer Committee placement during your first year helps you orient yourself to our League, meet our members, and get your bearings in your new town. We encourage you to make new friends, try different volunteer and training opportunities, and experience all the Junior League of Richmond has to offer. Make sure to ask lots of questions and try everything!

Please note: Each League is independent and funds are not transferred between Leagues. If you are due a refund, please work with your previous League to arrange.
