La Leche League Area and Affiliate Conferences
What Are Area and Affiliate Conferences?
Every profession sponsors conferences at which participants can learn from each other as well as speakers. Outside sessions they network, share experiences and gain new ideas for tackling their day-to-day concerns. Well, parenting is our most important profession and you can go to conferences, too! Each of the conferences listed below is designed specifically for parents, those who are breastfeeding and those who are exploring the later years of childhood. The hotel halls are filled with babies, mothers, dads and older children. The playrooms resound with laughter and toddlers play happily on the floor in session rooms. Come to a conference designed to enhance your parenting skills!
Some LLL Areas also sponsor Health Professional Seminars or Continuing Education days with content geared to health care professionals in the field of lactation.
