The purpose of the Each One Reach One Campaign is to increase membership. The goal is for each member to share the benefits of belonging with other colleagues. Course directors, individual members, and Chapters or Affiliates are all encouraged to participate.
Over 500 new members were introduced to ILCA in 2013 through the Each One Reach One membership drive. Three members actually met the minimum of five to qualify for the Individual award with Emma Artalejo from El Paso, Texas, winning with 19 new members, a new record!
Winner of the 2013 Each One Reach One Membership Campaign:
Be sure to check that your name is being added to the membership form as the person, course director, or affiliate or chapter who introduced the person to ILCA!
New prize for 2014! The winners of each category will receive a $250 gift certificate, which can be used for their membership fees, for continuing education or in the ILCA Store. Each category has a minimum of new members to reach:
Course Directors are those teaching courses approved by LEAARC, or for those instructors teaching any course that is 45 hours or longer. Chapters and Affiliates are those recognized by USLCA, CLCA or ILCA, that have paid the current year dues. All others will be considered "Individuals" under this contest.
The program runs from July 1 through June 30 each year. Download the ILCA membership application, enter your name on the line "Who Introduced You to ILCA?" and hand it to a friend or colleague who is interested in promoting or supporting breastfeeding worldwide.
Please make sure that your name is listed on the membership brochure under the section "Who introduced you to ILCA?" since that is the only way you get credit.
If the person chooses to join online, rather than with a paper application, ask them to enter your name as the person who introduced them to ILCA. We send an email reminder to all those who join online, but be sure to encourage your new member to let us know to enter your name--it only takes a few seconds! When in doubt, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask if your name was entered on your new member’s application.
Questions? Contact ILCA's Membership Coordinator, Erin Barnette, at email@example.com. She will be happy to help.
Remember, ILCA is YOU!
