What to Expect

Provisional Course (Your First Year)

You will be placed in a group of other new Provisional members based on geographic area.  An advisor will be assigned to your group and will lead you through your Provisional year, helping familiarize you with the League and its members, activities and purpose. You will meet as a group to support each other throughout your initial year, and your advisor will check in on your progress.

Provisional Retreat

The Provisional Retreat serves as the kick-off to your first year with the Junior League of Denver. You will meet your Provisional Advisor and fellow new members and learn about the Junior League of Denver.

The 2017 Provisional Retreat will be held on August 27. 

What does Your Provisional Year Look Like?

During your Provisional year, you will participate in monthly Provisional Group meetings held in the evenings on a weekday. Additionally, provisional members are required to attend other league events, including Done in a Days, General Meetings, League Experience Events held throughout the calendar year.

In addition to monthly Provision Group meetings, most Provisional members report attending one to two additional two hour long events each month. Many events are in the evening, however some events are weekend events.

Your Provisional year will require a commitment of approximately 60 total hours between the months of August through May. You will participate in:

Upon successful completion of your Provisional year, you will transition to Active service. As an Active Junior League of Denver member, you will serve on one of many League committees. We ask that you serve a minimum of 5 years as an Active member.

What do Your Active Years Look Like?

Similar to Provisional Group meetings, you will transition into your Committee meetings. Many committees will also meet once a month (does not hold true for each committee). And you will be expected to attend events outside of your committee as well including Done in a Days, General Meetings, League Experience Events held throughout the calendar year.

Transfer Committee

First, we are so excited you will be joining our wonderful League! Once you have completed your transfer, you will be placed on the Transfer Committee for your first year. This group is normally anywhere from 40-60 women! Your placement with us is for a full year and begins in July/August. Should you transfer to us anytime from the summer months through December 15, you will be placed on the current year’s committee. Should you transfer to Denver after December 15, we will go ahead and transfer your membership to the JLD, and your placement will not begin until the following summer months.

As an Active Transfer, you will spend the year learning all about the Junior League of Denver and have the opportunity to attend plenty of socials created just for Transfers. You will have requirements to attend transfer meetings, and will also meet many women outside of the Transfer Committee while you complete your Active Transfer requirements. There are so many ways to get involved!
