 FAQs

I am very busy and concerned that the Club may require more time than I can give. Is there flexibility to the membership requirements?

The Westlake Village Junior Women’s Club is committed to serving the needs of the community and members are encouraged to participate as much as they can. Most of us are wives, mothers, or full time employees who lead busy lives as well. We find that the most fulfilled members are women who have made their volunteer service a priority and are dedicated to fulfilling that commitment.

We encourage provisional members to dedicate time on the level that is comfortable for their individual circumstances. If there is ever a circumstance that you cannot meet one of your requirements contact your membership chairs so they can assist you as we understand how busy life can be.

Can provisional members vote or hold office? 

Not until they are installed at the Installation Banquet in May and become active members.

Can a provisional member attend events?

Yes! Provisional members are required to attend at least six general meetings and are welcome to participate in fundraising, community service and social events. In fact, attendance is encouraged as a way for provisional and active members to get to know one another.

If I am a provisional member, can I be involved on a committee and do volunteer work?

Absolutely! For example, committee participation in the "Santa Comes to Westlake, Agoura and Beyond" food drive is one provisional requirement to join.

How can I find out more about WVJWC?

 Our monthly general meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month, August through May. You are welcome to attend one of these meetings, or please contact our Director of Membership at membership@westlakejuniors.org.

Annual dues are subject to change annually but are currently $249 and must be paid prior upon submitting your application for membership. This annual fee is used to offset the administrative costs of operating the Club. A percentage of your annual dues are sent to the General Federation of Women's Clubs with which we are affiliated. Also included in your dues are two VIP Night Tickets to the Gingerbread Holiday Boutique, a bag of groceries for our annual comminuty-wide food drive and service project Santa Comes to Westlake, Agoura, and Beyond, and your ticket to the Installation Banquet held in May.

If I am already a member, how can become a sustaining member?

If you have served the Westlake Junior Women's Club for a total of 3 years, you may apply to become a sustaining member. After revision and approval of your application from the Board of Directors, you may remain in the club without obligation to fulfill club requirements.
