Googled and found!

Posted By Melanie Landon-Hays, Sunday, November 8, 2015


At the conclusion of our wonderful 2015 conference, we held some great discussions in our Town Hall Meeting.  We shared many ideas and stories about how to expand membership in our organization and get the word out to others.  One story that excited the executive board was of Lakendra Smithwho had searched literacy organizations online and found ALER through Google.  She felt it fit her needs exactly and flew to California all the way from Washington DC to attend our conference, participate in our sessions, and to fellowship with us.  AS we work to increase our visibility and recruit new members, we are so happy for our online presence. But it may not be enough.  As members, think of ways you can invite others to join us and participate in our great organization.  Send ideas through the website and we'll make sure your voice is heard.
