ILCA is committed to world health transformed through breastfeeding and skilled lactation care. As a result, we offer our members opportunities to engage with the organization and support others. Here are three ways you can be involved.



ILCA’s Each One, Reach One campaign allows members to share what they appreciate about membership with other breastfeeding professionals in their community. We welcome participation in the campaign from individual members, course directors, and Partner organizations. Nearly 500 new members were introduced to ILCA through the Each One, Reach One campaign for the 2017 membership year. Thank you to everyone that participated!

When sharing about ILCA membership, please be sure to ask for new members to list your name on their applications where it asks


“Who Introduced You to ILCA?”

Help Us Recruit Members in 2018! The winners of each category will receive a FREE standard membership (value based on geographic location). Each category has a minimum of new members to reach:

  • Individual Member (minimum 5)

*Course Directors are those teaching courses approved by LEAARC, or for those instructors teaching any course that is 45 hours or longer. Partner Organizations are those recognized by ILCA. All others will be considered "Individual Members" within this contest.
