Your Membership Is Important:

As the work of operating a Head Start program continues to demand more and more of us, it’s an especially good time to join or renew your regional association membership.  Dues are modest and, when you come to conferences, you have the rare opportunity of talking to and working with others who do the same job that you do and who are wrestling with the same challenges you’re facing.  Through your membership and participation, you can assure that we will all continue to have venues to support one another.
