The Provisional year begins in September and continues through May. (A half-year Provisional experience may be offered from February to May. Please contact the New Member Co-Chairs if interested.) New members join Retention Groups led by advisors, and Provisional member meetings are held monthly with additional ad hoc training sessions scheduled as needed throughout the League year. These meetings are structured to offer training, information about League issues, answer questions and develop friendships. The remainder of the Provisional requirements that must be completed each year are stated in the Junior League of Pittsburgh handbook.

After completing first-year requirements, members attain Active status.  They receive committee placements or serve in leadership positions, and they dedicate a certain amount of time to community service, fundraising and membership/training activities.

Gold Active
After completing five Active years, members are eligible to apply for Gold Active status.  Gold Actives are placed on committees or hold leadership positions, and they complete community service along with other requirements.

Active members, who have served for a minimum of seven years, can request a “less active” status, yet still participate in League activities as they choose.
