When you renew your membership and submit a Certification Form your information will be added to FALDP Certified page and you'll receive an FALDP Certified logo.
2017 Renewal Star
When you renew, the 2017 Renewal Star is placed next to your member listing; the 2016 Renewal Star is removed; and your listing is moved towards the top of the page. This is first come first served. The sooner you renew, the better chance you have of retaining a higher position on the page (above the fold). For example, if you are the first member to renew in your home county, your listing goes to the top of the page, and stays there until a new member joins and names your home county as their home county too. New members always go to the top of the page in their home county.

The best way to ensure you'll receive referrals to to make sure the information on the Member Directory is clear and current. For call in consumers we may suggest that the consumer call 2-3 members. When consumers send us a message through one of the many forms on our site, we forward the inquiry directly to a single member.
