Would you like to chat with one or more LLL Founders; listen to compelling speakers; and shop around the world in three hours or less? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, plan to attend LLLI's Conference, Breastfeeding: Ancient Art—Modern Miracle, July 2-5, 2005 at the Washington Hilton in Washington DC, USA.
La Leche League International's Conference team is busy planning compelling pre-Conference Workshops, an opening night complete with a Parade of Nations and a sensational speaker, and three full-days of informative and motivating presentations culminating with a gala closing event complete with dinner.
A new Conference feature will be a Founder's Parlor, which will be hosted by one or more Founders. In a casual atmosphere, Conference attendees will be able to talk with a Founder and find out firsthand how these remarkable women were able to rediscover the ancient art of breastfeeding. The Conference is the only LLLI event that includes all seven Founders. They will also participate in the Afternoon Tea, an intimate event that includes a presentation by the Founders along with a light supper.
Another new feature at the Conference will be a Latino room. It's guaranteed to be a lively place to meet with attendees from around the world to find out how the modern miracle of breastfeeding is being discovered in Hispanic countries.
Whether you are a first time mother or an experienced member of La Leche League, attending the Conference will give you the memorable experience of being surrounded by so many others who also believe that breastfeeding is a modern miracle.
