Board milestones 

October 2019 The board revised and simplified its bylaws to: 1) establish staggered, three-year board terms to balance board recruitment continuity, 2) allocate two director positions for each cluster, 3) create six new at-large board positions, and 4) revise the officer election process. 

Spring 2020 Each cluster selected two board representatives for one-, two- or three-year terms starting today: July 1, 2020For a complete list of your FY 20-21 Board of Directors, click here. 

Looking Ahead 

The board is expanding its committees to strengthen its work. Serving on board committees are an excellent way for Head Start leaders to become more involved in the work of the association. Thought about board service?  Committee work is a good first step down that pathCheck in with your cluster representatives to learn about opportunities to participate.
