Annual Meeting


We are changing the schedule of our Annual Meeting from every December, to every April. In 2015, the transition year for this change in our event schedule, we are hosting the "Semi-Annual Meeting & Celebration of Head Start's 50th Anniversary."

This event will take place on Wednesday, April 22 at 6pm. For more information and to RSVP click here.


The Capital District Child Care Council is committed to increasing the quality of child care in the area by providing resources to the community. Every Fall, the Child Care Council holds an annual membership meeting to review the Council's Report to the Community, a document that highlight's the agency's work for that year. Child care providers, parents, families, and community members are invited to attend.


The Annual Meeting also hosts the election of Council Board Members and Officers by members of the Council, and the presentation of both the Community Collaborator Who Cares Award, and the Dianne Meckler Scholarship.
