. . . breastfed babies, toddlers, children, teenagers and adults?
. . . breastfeeding mothers and their partners?
. . . experts in the fields of breastfeeding and parenting?
. . . La Leche League Leaders from all over the world?

Even better, how about a hotel full? Others have imagined it too and are making it a reality as La Leche League celebrates its 50th birthday during the LLL International Conference in Chicago from July 20 – 23, 2007. And you should be there! How? Consider applying for a Conference Scholarship!

Do the following criteria describe you?

  • An accredited Leader as of September 30, 2006 and current on dues

  • Currently working to fulfill LLL's mission and purpose, whether by leading Groups and/or through an administrative position
  • Know an active Leader who can recommend you
  • Need help funding this exciting opportunity
  • Conference travel plans do not include non-dependent children or family
  • Willing and eager to share information upon returning home and can provide a concrete plan to do so
