Chapter Spotlight has been incorporated into this Chapter and State Development Blog

Congratulations to our HLAA affiliates on their many successes during the past year. HLAA Chapters are like fingerprints – alike in many ways but unique in many others. Those attributes inspire a variety of projects and participation in all parts of the country. We take great pleasure in sharing these chapter successes. To receive the blog news, be sure to sign up on any page of this website where the box appears “Subscribe to Receive HLAA News Via Email.” When Chapter news is posted, it will appear in your email, no login needed. Note: Even if you have signed up for the HLAA Chapter Blog in the past, you will need to sign up again on this new website. Don’t miss any news!
