Become a Member

The Junior League of Bristol welcomes your interest in becoming a member of our organization that was established as Border Guild in 1948.  In considering membership in the Junior League, you might wonder what you can contribute to the future.  Consider this, all but the 25 charter members of Border Guild started as Provisional members.  Each was simply a woman who made a commitment to this organization of her time and talents.  It was through the training opportunities and the mentoring of the Active and Sustaining members that each of the women succeeded.


 ​Provisionals are the lifeblood of our organization and will help strengthen and sustain it over the years.  JLB maintains its reputation for hard-working, committed volunteers by asking Provisional members to meet the following requirements.  Your Provisional year is your training for Active membership.   You will learn about the League's history and structure and by attending Provisional Course meetings, practice parliamentary procedure and meeting management skills.  You will meet Active and Sustaining members of the League by attending monthly meetings.  Your Provisional year promises to be among the most rewarding and fun of your League career.

A prospective member may not be younger than 21 years of age on May 31st of the year she is admitted to Provisional membership.  

​​A prospective member shall have a commitment to community service and an interest in developing her potential for voluntary community participation.
