On September 13, 2005, initiates patiently awaited their induction into the Honor Society! 
The Initiation Ceremony is an exciting event;  a well-deserved honor. Initiates may only become members of the National ALD through induction into a local ALD Chapter. 
  
On September 13, 2005, the Liberty Chapter inducted one hundred seventy-one new initiates into the Honor Society as family members and friends shared in their special honor.
