2017 Public Policy Forum

2017 Public Policy Forum

From February 26 - February 28, 2017, two of our board members (Jocelyn Tozier and Kelly Bigham) traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the annual NAEYC Policy Forum with other like-minded policy advocates from around the country. The opportunity included a half-day boot camp on implementing the Power to the Profession initiative, a day on policy briefings and breakout sessions, with the forum ending with 'Hill Day', in which members had the opportunity to spend the day building relationships with Representatives, Senators, and/or their staff.
