Regional & Interstate Groups.
ECTA believes that networking between colleagues from all sectors of early childhood education and care provides a key component to successful professional development. To this end ECTA supports the establishment and facilitation of ECTA Groups that promote networking at a local level. Some of these Groups have existed since the beginning of the Association in the 1970s.
ECTA provides professional, legal and financial support to Group Executives providing meetings, workshops and other forms of networking among local members. Our ECTA Annual State Conference held in June each year provides another opportunity to establish new and to consolidate existing networks.
