No monthly breakdown needed. This number should include Series Meetings (live and online), Breastfeeding Cafe meetings, as well as Enrichment Meetings, but not playgroups.
* Include those who are pregnant and intend to breast/chestfeed their child, those who are currently nursing, and those whose children have weaned. Include co-nursing parents in this number. Do not include Leaders.
This question asks if the Leaders of the Group welcome all support people (e.g. fathers, partners, grandparents, etc.) at Group meetings. If any support people are excluded from a meeting, that meeting would not be included in this count.
This is the total number of helping situations including phone calls, Facebook, Twitter, emails, text messages, home visits, and informal in-person contacts. (Each conversation counts as one contact, two separate phone calls on the same topic count as two conversations. Use Leader discretion on text conversations. If it had been a phone call, would it have been all the same call? If so, count it as one conversation.) Do not include Helpline or Helpforms work. Those numbers are provided by their committees. The LLL USA Social Media team counts their responses to personal messages to the LLL USA page and these are also submitted as a team. However, responses to breastfeeding/chestfeeding questions via LOCAL social media should be included here. "Local" means any social media run by a Group, Area, or Area Network. Discussion within a Facebook post counts as the same conversation. (Please only count actual responses that a Leader gave to helping questions. Do not count educational posts or posts where a Leader shared a link for general knowledge or discussion.)
Does the Group use social media? “Social media” means platforms where posts are easily shared beyond the original audience (media in which a post could “go viral”). Thus Facebook pages and discussions count, Twitter counts, but Yahoo! and Google groups would not be counted.
Does the Group host cafe-style meetings? These are drop-in style meetings that don't follow the rotating Series Meeting pattern.
Are you or your co-Leaders actively involved in local and/or state breastfeeding coalitions?* This is asking about active participation, such as contributing time, energy, or financial support to the projects of the coalition. Actively contributing to email discussions, conference calls, attending meetings, or paying dues would qualify as being active. Simply reading emails would not qualify. Lurking on the coalition's social media platform also does not count.
Please include new and renewal memberships.
These events would have an official registration or program such as conferences, Leader Education Days, workshops, retreats, Communication Skills (CS), etc. Please do not include Chapter meetings.
These are educational events beyond Group Series/Enrichment Meetings that had an actual educational component included (conferences, etc.). An advance registration/RSVP system would have been used. Playgroups would not be counted. Picnics would not be counted. General Live,Love, Latch! events are reported separately by the Live, Love, Latch! Team
This would be events offering CERPs for HCPs.
* Response required from all NGA Leaders
If yes, please provide updated information in the comments field.
