The perspective of each IBCLC is unique. Your viewpoint is shaped by whether you practice in the community, in a health-care facility, or as a researcher. In your region of the world, you may hold a different vantage point based on the cultural needs and practices of the families that you serve. And yet there are common threads we all hold as providers and for the breastfeeding mothers and chestfeeding parents we serve.
The ILCA board is where we weave together all of these perspectives to inform the best possible support for you, the lactation profession, and the global breastfeeding community.
Board nominations are now open. We welcome you to take a moment to consider who in your community can best represent your unique needs while holding the vision for our diverse global profession. Our goal is to ensure a board that can truly capture all the threads that make up the lactation consultant field.
Candidates must self-nominate. Required qualifications include:
- Membership in good standing for two years (immediately prior to the date nominations are called)
- IBCLC in good standing
- Strong interest in the growth and development of ILCA
- Demonstrated leadership
