Membership applications are accepted each month from the 1st to the 15th for the following month. Any applications received after the 15th will be considered for the following month. Invitations to interview will be sent on or around the 18th of each month. Don't miss the window!


Since this is a very curated group of (amazing) women, we want to make sure that our members are a perfect fit here, and that The Perlene can meet you needs. Read on for more info, then fill out an application! If we feel you are a good fit for membership, we will email to set up a time for a tour and interview with our Community Manager.  You’ll be able to meet some of the members while you are here, get all your questions answered, and find out if the vibe is right for you. 

Due to time limitations, private tours are not given without a submitted application.
