Member Testimonials

*Many thanks to YOU—the NCCCC Board and many others—who were involved in putting together this year’s great line-up of keynote speakers, presenters, CCAMPIS pre-bid session, quality vendors, a fun destination location, a comfortable conference center, a low-cost hotel, yummy lunches, no-host dinners…and the many, many, many details that go in to hosting a large group of early childhood administrators. It was a treat to be so well thought of and cared for!

Director, Early Education and Family Resources, University of Massachusetts Amherst

*NCCCC was a tremendous source of information, support and friendships when I became the director of a center that needed to be revamped and revitalized.  Over the past ten years NCCCC has continued to be my go-to source when I have questions and concerns.  The knowledge and experiences of fellow members and their willingness to share, support and guide peers is invaluable.
