If you run a center-based, Head Start, Alternative Payment Program, Family Child Care Home Education Network, Local Planning Council, Resource and Referral, or any combination of these, we represent YOU! As a CCDAA member, you get access to the latest information, legislative updates, regulations, and more that impact your programs.

In addition to these emails, as a CCDAA member, you will get the detailed version of our legislative grid, as well as breaking news updates with legislative and budget analysis along with an explanation of how these changes will impact your program. These details, given exclusively to CCDAA members, are what help you plan for the ups and downs of running a successful child development program.

For example, if you would like to stay within the previous cost of $2,000, you would be able to add one Regular\Comprehensive Member at $300 and ten Affiliate Members at $150 each for a total of $1,800. You can also add six Regular\Comprehensive members for a total of $1800, or any other combination you see fit for your agency, as long as you meet the requirement of one Regular\Comprehensive membership.
A: Yes! Every agency can have unlimited Regular\Comprehensive Members. They can also have an unlimited number of Affiliate Memberships, as long as the agency has at least one Regular\Comprehensive Member.
