Membership Requirements & Application

To be eligible to join the Junior League of Champaign-Urbana, an individual who identifies as a woman must be 21 years old by June 1st of the year in which she is seeking membership. No member sponsorship is required to join the Junior League of Champaign-Urbana. We accept new members each summer to participate in our New Member Class which begins in the fall.

All new members must:

  • Attend monthly New Member Class meetings and monthly General Membership meetings from September to May.
  • Pay Enrollment Dues.
  • Commitment to what you can:
    • You will tell the League what you can commit to. This new approach will allow you to design your League experience in terms of how much time you can give and how you will utilize and develop your talents effectively through your placement, while at the same time contributing to the League’s overall goals and mission.

Please review the New Membership Agreement online or print out a PDF.
