Interested In joining the Board?

Service on the OKAEYC Board is a chance to help drive the decisions of our highly-respected national and state associations.  Holding an office on the state board is also an opportunity to work with other leaders in the state, guide OKAEYC strategic goals, and influence programs, training, and issues in the state. Board service is a chance to grow personally and professionally, to develop skills, gain unique experience, and make lasting connections with a team of other passionate and motivated professionals.  This is an exciting time to join the leadership of OKAEYC.
