Who can attend?

The Junior League of Phoenix is thrilled to host delegates from AJLI’s Southwest Region –Bakersfield, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Orange County, Palm Springs, Pasadena, Riverside, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Tucson – in addition to any Junior League member from outside the Southwest Region.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is served by several major airlines with 1,200 daily flights—about 500 of them nonstop—so we encourage Junior Leagues outside of the Southwest Region to consider attending this valuable and accessible regional conference.
