Good Standing Qualifications

To be in “good standing,” a council must have a minimum of 20 members, including at least three ILA members and three officers who belong to ILA, and must hold at least three local meetings.

A council in “good standing” must complete the following steps by December 31 in order to qualify for financial incentive awards.

Goal 1:  To award membership incentives to local councils that maintain and increase membership using the total presented at the January Board Meeting, 2020 as the basis to determine growth.  A council may receive up to $200.  Incentives follow:

  • Any council that grows 3% or more from last year will receive an additional $25.

  • The council with the highest percentage of growth from last year will be inducted into the President’s Club and receive special recognition (certificate) and $100.    

 

Goal 2: To award membership incentives to local councils with the largest percentage of active ILA members.

  • The council with the largest percentage of active ILA members will receive $25.
