Plan Your Activities

You can stage a fun and successful IBCLC Day celebration with just a little planning. Consider:

  • Your target audience. Is it parents, health staff, students who are future parents and health workers, IBCLCs, or the wider public?
  • Placement for maximum effect. Can you link your event to another high-profile activity aimed at your target audience? Do you want many small activities or one large activity?
  • Where you could hold on activity, consider a local hospital, health clinic, baby store, shopping mall, mother support group meeting, library, health fair. The possibilities are endless!
