Thank you for your interest in transferring to the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, Inc. (JLOEB).

To assist you in the transfer process, answers to some frequently asked questions are below. Please do not hesitate to contact the JLOEB Transfer Advisor at if you have any additional questions, need clarification, or simply want to discuss JLOEB and transferring.

How do I begin the transfer process?

To begin the transfer process out of your current League to JLOEB, please contact your current League’s Corresponding Secretary. Assuming you are in good standing with your current League, she will facilitate the transfer and work with the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI)’s electronic transfer system. JLOEB will receive notification once the transfer is complete.

Once the transfer is complete, what steps do I need to take with my new League?

Once JLOEB receives notification of the completed transfer, our Transfer Advisor will work with you to determine a placement for the League year and share helpful information, such as an outline of the transfer obligations for the year, the JLOEB Placement Handbook, and information about the Members section of the website.

Do the dues paid to my current League transfer to JLOEB?

Dues are not transferable between Leagues. Instead, you will receive a pro-rated refund based on when you transfer out from your current League. Once your transfer is complete, JLOEB’s Corresponding Secretary and/or Transfer Advisor will work with you to figure out the dues owed to JLOEB based on when you transfer into our League.

Is there a transfer fee?

Yes, there is a $25.00 transfer fee.

When can I transfer!?

A League member in good standing can transfer from her current League to JLOEB at any time.
