Out with the Old – In with the New

It’s that time of year when chapters are again beginning their important and valued work in the communities they serve. And the national organization, in turn, is continuing its work, supporting, guiding, and educating its members—the chartered chapters.

Last year, we shared with you, our # 1 Strategic Goal–reimagining the national organization, resulting in a strong, sustainable organization maximizing nonprofit best practice. Strategies to accomplish this goal included simplifying the national requirements for chapters and optimizing access to resources that support chapters. Click here to read more.

Follow Us on All Our Social Media Platforms

We would like to encourage all Assistance League Chapters to follow Assistance League National on all social media platforms and like the posts. The more interactive we are on social media the easier it is to amplify our content across all platforms.

We would also motivate the chapters to tag ‘@assistanceleaguenational’ in their posts and in their stories so that they can be re-shared to the National page. Tagging ‘@assistanceleaguenational’ on social media posts will give the chapters the opportunity to get featured on the National page. Essentially the National Page will be giving the chapter a shoutout to display all the amazing social good the chapter is doing.
