One of the most valuable donations you can make to LAAEYC is the gift of your time and expertise.
Throughout the year, we offer structured volunteer opportunities, but we are always grateful and appreciative of the unique skills and creative volunteer ideas that our members bring to bear.
Together, we will continue to see great success in amplifying our voice and making sure our message is heard. Here are some of the volunteer opportunities which we hope you will consider.

Members are invited to join the committee responsible for the planning and implementation of our annual conference. The annual conference represents the single most significant opportunity for members to network, further their education, and learn all the new developments which affect early childhood education. Volunteers coordinate the venue and dates, recruit and enroll sponsors and exhibitors, arrange for speakers, and develop the conference's overall focus.
FACILITATOR OR SPEAKER
The annual conference is so successful because of highly qualified and talented professionals' contributions. These speakers help to educate their colleagues on a wide range of subjects. If you would like to participate as a speaker or contributor at the next LAAEYC annual conference, contact Dr. Cyndi Dicarlo, LAAEYC Executive Director.
CONTRIBUTE TO OUR BLOG
If you are a subject matter expert, have an informative story to tell, or would like to encourage other members, contact us about writing a blog. Guest member contributors help LAAEYC promote our members' voices and share diverse experiences from which others may benefit.
LEAD A DISCUSSION FORUM
Online forums are essential vehicles to encourage conversation, debate, and education among our members. Asking questions and relating experiences in a group setting benefits our community as a whole. Volunteers to moderate these groups are always welcome.
PLEDGE TO SHARE YOUR MEMBERSHIP STORY
When networking with other early education professionals who are not currently members of LAAEYC, share your membership story with them. Tell them how your affiliation with LAAEYC has helped you further your education, promote your career, or put you in contact with essential players in the early education community. Share stories of support and training and invite them to join.
ORGANIZE VOTERS AND REGISTRATION
With election season always around the corner, volunteers are crucial in getting out the vote.
