ALABAMA HOMEMAKERS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS
The goal of the Alabama Homemakers and Community Leaders (AHCL) is to increase membership and to retain the members current members. A suggested way to do this is to encouraging the use of high quality programs and educational methods to meet the needs of today’s audiences. This is an on-going challenge to Alabama Homemakers and Community Leaders (AHCL) and county organizations.
State membership supports AHCL in it’s effort to strengthen individuals and families through continuing education, leadership development and community service. It provides for state and county awards in recognition of outstanding county programs and projects, and for the expenses of running the AHCL organization.
AHCL membership is open to every resident in Alabama without regard to age, race, color, sex, handicap, economic circumstances, creed and national origin or ethnic background. A membership card is issued to each member upon receipt of State dues.
County treasurers collect AHCL dues from the clubs in their county and forward them to the State Treasurer along with the membership forms containing names, complete mailing addresses, email address and other requested information by December 1st yearly. Dues are accepted from anyone joining during the year.
