Membership is now open and we invite all Family Child Care Providers and staff to join this new statewide association. If you do join before year’s end your membership is a tax expense for 2016.
Newly formed Family Child Care Association of Maine (FCCAM)
We welcome Maine’s Family Child Care Providers and their staff to join the Family Child Care Association of Maine (FCCAM), future state affiliate for the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC). Membership in FCCAM will provide opportunities to network both locally and statewide with other Providers for training and support. Membership will connect us with other organizations that are currently engaged with advocating for children and their families in Maine. It will provide an opportunity to drive awareness of our professionalism and value to our communities. It will provide Providers with a united voice for input in changes that impact Family Child Care in Maine directly.
Maine Roads to Quality (MRTQ) recognizes both the need for and the importance of supporting family child care providers in their work with young children and their families. In support, Maine Roads to Quality (MRTQ) PDN engaged MaineAEYC to work with family child care providers to organize on the state level with one of the goals being establishing a state affiliation with NAFCC. That work has progressed to the point where FCCAM is ready to open up membership to Maine’s 1000+ Providers!
The Board of FCCAM encourages Providers to also join NAFCC. At this time through generous support from MRTQ, the first 100 FCCAM members who join NAFCC as new basic members will enjoy a special sponsored rate of only $10 for an annual membership. That is a one time savings of $35.
See the linked Membership Forms (below) for complete details –
FCCAM only membership $25 per year
Dual FCCAM/NAFCC membership $10 per year (in addition to $25 FCCAM for a total of $35)
Your FCCAM and NAFCC dues may be deductible as membership in a professional association on your income tax forms.
