Board Meetings are currently the third Thursday of each month from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, but are subject to change depending on the availability of board members. COAEYC's board meetings are virtual and monthly. Orientation for new board members in 2023 will take place Thursday, July 6 at 6:00pm. In lieu of a board meeting, a board governance training for all board members is usually held mid-late July, 2023 date TBD.
This is a working board. COAEYC is staffed by one part-time contractor and depends on board engagement to complete projects, so it is expected that you attend and participate if elected onto the board.
