Awards & Grants

Nominate an outstanding IBCLC today!

Would you like to honour a fellow IBCLC®?  Nominations are being accepted for the 2015 Award of Excellence presented by CLCA-ACCL.  Let’s take time to honour our fellow Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants® for the outstanding work they do. Nothing is more rewarding than to be acknowledged for one’s efforts, so let’s make sure our colleagues are recognized for their commitment.

Nominate someone who you feel has demonstrated outstanding service to breastfeeding mothers, to CLCA/ACCL or other breastfeeding associations, for volunteer work in the lactation field, or for their part in educating, or developing educational models, for future IBCLC candidates.  The award winner will receive a complimentary membership to CLCA-ACCL for the 2016 year.

Deadline for 2015 Award is September 20, 2015 – nominate someone today.
