COAEYC State Committee Interest Form
 Thank you for showing interest on joining one (or more!) of COAEYC's state committees. Committees are a way to become involved in the COAEYC's work, develop new skills, and connect with the early childhood community in Colorado. You do not need to be a member of COAEYC or NAEYC to participate in a committee!

All committee meetings are virtual. Meeting times/dates vary, but are typically in the evening.

Advocacy and Policy
The goal of this committee is to help COAEYC continue to be an active partner in the building of statewide systems and early childhood initiatives. Its goal is to be involved in advocacy initiatives and mobilize public will for social change, especially when it comes to teacher compensation and equitable access to early learning for ALL children. Past activities have included: making policy recommendations to the COAEYC Board of Directors, creating advocacy trainings for early childhood educators, meeting with legislators to advocate for early childhood, and sharing policy action items with members.

Workforce Supports and Development 
The goal of this committee is to help advance the early childhood profession in Colorado through: 1) creating affordable, accessible, diverse, and relevant professional development opportunities, 2) recruiting and retaining passionate early childhood teachers who feel educated, prepared, and supported, 3) work towards ensuring that early childhood teachers are well-compensated for the important work that they do. This committee supports COAEYC's professional development programming through brainstorming, planning, and support with coordination. Past activities have included: developing professional development programs (the COAEYC book club was a Workforce Development Committee project!), finding facilitators, and reviewing applications for scholarships and PLC programs.

Membership Engagement Committee
The goal of this committee is to create connection between COAEYC's statewide membership and to facilitate opportunities to network, volunteer, provide feedback, and engage. 

This committee works together to plan, coordinate, and oversee fundraising efforts for COAEYC. The funds raised from these projects can help pay for things like professional development, conference registration scholarships, materials, membership activities, and other identified needs that may not be fully covered by membership dues or grant funding.
