If the potential applicant has experienced separation from a young infant, then it is suggested that Leaders also use the document “Areas for Leaders to Consider in Exploring the Mothering Experience Prerequisite with a Candidate” in discussions with the potential Leader Applicant.
When you are ready to recommend a mother for leadership, she has to fill out the “Application for Leadership” and you need to fill out the “Leader Recommendation” form. These two completed forms should be sent to the Coordinator of Leader Accreditation (CLA) with a check for $35 made out to LLL of New York (the fee is $15 if the potential Leader Applicant already owns the Leader’s Handbook). Mail the entire package to Kristin Carter, CLA, at 12 Abbott Street, West Babylon, NY 11704.
All of the above-mentioned documents and many other helpful Leader Accreditation Department forms and guidelines are available on the LLL Alliance for Breastfeeding Education (formerly LLL Eastern United States) Web site's LAD section -- login: usallleader; password: access4ALLL
