State Chapters for WIL

If you live in a state where there's currently a chapter, be sure to let the appropriate contact know so that you will be added to their list of communications and receive invitations to their programs and events.  AHLA WIL members will receive monthly updates on all chapter activities.

There's no extra charge to join, and it's a great way to meet your local community. If you live nearby or just travel a lot, feel free to get on the state list(s) as well, and if you want to start up a state chapter, contact Rosanna Maietta. And be sure to check out these best practices.
