ILCA provides you with the essential tools, resources, and information to best support the families you support.
Do you support and promote breastfeeding? Then you are a valued member of our community. You do not need to be an IBCLC to be a member! We welcome you to consider joining us in 2015!
2015 Benefits Include:
Earn FREE CERPs:
NEW in 2015! All ILCA members are eligible to earn up to 10 FREE CERPs. As you know, IBCLCs are required to recertify by CERPs or exam every five years. Be sure to take advantage of this benefit: over the course of five years, you can secure up to two-thirds of your required CERPs for the recertification process. You can read more about this benefit, including the list of qualifying CERPs, HERE.
Access the Journal of Human Lactation (JHL):
Guide your practice by reading the research you need in three ways: on paper, online, and mobile. In addition to the print edition that will arrive in your mailbox, you can also read full articles online at the JHL website, on your computer, or your mobile device at jhl.sagepub.com.
Find A Lactation Consultant (FALC) Listing:
