We are pleased you are exploring avenues to Get Involved in NYAEYC!
Our organization is built on the strength of our members. We encourage you to participate in your professional organization. There is truly a “niche” for everyone!
Do you have an area of expertise that you would like to share with others? The Ask an Expert page on our website is a place where students and others can go to email questions to those who have an expertise in a particular area. It is a wonderful way to share your talents with the field and network across the state.
You can pick the length of time you want to be available and the area for which you would be willing to be contacted.
Send our Professional Preparation and Development Chair, Mary Ellen Bardsley, your contact information. She will call to discuss the opportunities available.

Tell your story!
Our legislators need to hear about your personal experiences regarding the need for more compensation, child care subsidies, challenges and opportunities facing the field. Either write a letter (see above) or send an email to our Executive Director.
There are opportunities to advertise in our newsletter (coming out 2x a year); and our conference program (distributed to 3,000) and on our website. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
