Dear Member or Friend of LDA, LDA is a non-profit organization run solely by and for its members. To keep our organization "alive and kicking", the State Board will be reviewing and updating our membership package on an ongoing basis. I would love your feedback on what membership benefits that you would like to see us offer and what activities that you feel would attract new membership in the future. Benefits may encompass everything from an online "members only" forum and/or blog on our website, to more opportunities to network with others who volunteer to make a difference in the community, or etc. We already offer newsletters and reduced conference rates. Though I can't promise we will be able to provide everyone with their wish list, we will definitely take your feedback into consideration in order to provide you with a quality membership package in the future.
