NAEYC has opportunities for members to get involved and help shape the future of the early childhood profession. You can serve in your regional affiliate and at the national level. You can also help to support leadership development opportunities through NAEYC's Building a Lasting Legacy Campaign.
Regional Affiliate Opportunities
NAEYC’s network of Affiliates provide excellent opportunities for members to participate in activities at the state and local levels. Contact your regional NAEYC Affiliate for information about service opportunities in your area.
National Leadership Opportunities
Many NAEYC programs offer leadership opportunities as reviewers or consulting editors. In addition, current NAEYC members are eligible to serve in governance as members of the NAEYC Governing Board or the Council for NAEYC Accreditation of Programs for Young Children. Opportunities are available on a rolling basis, and are updated regularly.
Affiliate Advisory Council
The Affiliate Advisory Council advises the NAEYC Governing Board and national staff about all issues related to Affiliates and members, and identifies and develops strong, inclusive leadership. Applications for eight open seats will be available in January 2019.
Young Professionals Advisory Council
NAEYC formed the Young Professionals Advisory Council in Fall 2015 in order to help us better understand and meet the needs of the newest and youngest members of the profession. Check back in November for our updated 2017 cohort roster!
