At the end of a very exciting Day of Early Childhood, at the annual convention, in November 2008, Deborah Wells Rowe gave a thought provoking keynote for which we hope to provide audio on this site in the near future.
Following Debbie's talk the proposed Early Childhood Education Assembly (ECEA) held a special interest group meeting to vote on various aspects of the assembly. The minutes from this meeting can be found in the column on the right hand side of this web page. Since this meeting, the ECEA leadership has worked diligently at submitting the necessary paperwork required to complete the process of gaining assembly status. In February, 2009, the NCTE Executive Committee voted on whether or not to award this status.
On March 24, 2009, Millie Davis, Division Director, Communications and Affiliate Services at NCTE contacted us to officially inform us that we had been granted Assembly status!
We look forward to hearing from you, working with you, and supporting your needs! Please come back to this site for updates regarding the status of the proposed assembly.
