ILCA membership is open to all who support and promote breastfeeding; you can join at anytime and do NOT need to be an IBCLC® to be a member!
ILCA membership runs on a calendar year (January 1 to December 31). If you join between January and September, dues will be applied to the current year's membership, and you will receive back issues of the JHL for that year. If you join after October 1st, your membership will roll into the next year and you will start receiving issues of the JHL in February.
