Do you have expertise that you enjoy sharing with others in the field of lactation? Have you always wanted to present a webinar for the International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®), but the lack of compensation was a barrier for you? Did you miss the deadline to submit an abstract for the annual ILCA Conference, was only one of your abstracts accepted, or does the need for travel make it impossible for you to speak at an ILCA Conference in person?
The ILCA Webinar Series has been reexamined, reimagined, and redesigned to increase equitable access to the role of webinar speaker. Speakers now have the opportunity to select from a menu of financial compensation and other opportunities. Highlights of our new process include:
- Online abstract submission
- Four different financial compensation options for speakers
- Speaker recognition, marketing, and networking opportunities
Our new-and-improved webinar process also incorporates consideration of highly rated conference abstracts that were not selected for the annual ILCA Conference. Due to programmatic restrictions, each year we have the wonderful problem of being unable to select all of the impressive abstracts that have been proposed. Our new approach will help more of these abstracts become sessions that nurture the development of learners in communities everywhere.
We are seeking abstracts in each category of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE®) International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) Detailed Content Outline, including: development and nutrition; physiology and endocrinology; pathology; pharmacology and toxicology; psychology, sociology, and anthropology; techniques; clinical skills; ethical and legal issues; research; public health; and advocacy.
There is no limit to the number of abstracts you can submit. Webinars are needed year round and by speakers from every setting and country in the world. Click here to propose a webinar today!
This is wonderful! I’m going to put my thinking cap on and come up with some abstracts!!
Please do, Colette! We would welcome one or more webinar proposals from you!
