Chapter News You Can Use September 21, 2008


• New Calendar on HLAA website
• Help for Chapter Newsletters
• The national office needs to know
• Share the Chapter News

Dear Leaders,

By now, many of you have had your first meeting for the new season. Do you know how new people find your chapter? I hear all the time; I found the chapter on the Internet. Our website has your chapter listing. Is it up to-date? Is your own chapter website up to date with contact information that is accurate?

Does your listing include a phone number as well as an email address? Some people are very comfortable picking up the phone and calling while other prefer email. Consider having both on the HLAA website chapter listing as well as your own chapter website.

Additionally, look at your newsletters to be sure there is ample contact information for someone to reach a chapter contact before coming to their first meeting.

A proper and up-to-date chapter listing is #1 for good promotion. More about promoting your chapter in future issues.

Many have reported that attendance is up already. Wishing you great attendance, throughout the entire year.
