ELC Executive Committee

The Executive Committee maximizes the ability to capture current and future federal funds for services and infrastructure. It holds and advances a comprehensive vision for early childhood systems, including quality, access, and integration and alignment. The Executive Committee also connects and leverages priorities of other bodies whose focus includes early childhood and education (ex. P-20 Council, Cabinet for Children and Youth).​​​
