WOYC19: Proclamations, Policy, and the Profession 
Thanks to all of you who are working on securing proclamations at your state and local levels for this year's Week of the Young Child! Hopefully you've heard about our shared efforts to go beyond "thanks and recognition" for early childhood educators, using the opportunity to include some new, stronger language that focuses on and advances the ECE profession. We are also back with an updated toolkit that helps everyone celebrating WOYC integrate advocacy efforts that align with the themes of the day, as well as a form & map that will allow us to track the events and activities happening all over the country. Please make sure you access and use all three of the resources for a fantastic WOYC19: 
  1. Five Steps to #woyc19 Proclamations that Advance the ECE Workforce 
  2. Toolkit: America for Early Ed + Week of the Young Child = ECEWins

Chapter Policies and Procedures
You are required to have written permission from each person in the video and/or photos, and if a child, written permission from the child's parent or legal guardian, to post the video and/or photos and use the likeness of such person therein. By sharing with Iowa AEYC the video and/or photos, you grant Iowa AEYC the right to use the video and/or photo and/or any portion thereof in any manner it so chooses, including, without limitation, posting or sharing the video on Iowa AEYC's website, Facebook page, or Twitter account.

Every July our auditors require us to submit to them a Chapter Fiscal End of Year Report for each chapter including a bank statement showing the chapter's balance at the end of the fiscal year. The report is submitted to Iowa AEYC by the Chapter Representative and needs to be completed with the assistance of at a minimum the Chapter President and Treasurer.
Although chapters report to Iowa AEYC every July the members of their leadership team with their contact information, it is not uncommon for a change in one or more members of that leadership team may happen throughout the year. If this happens to your chapter please contact Pat Dautremont, Iowa AEYC's Membership Specialist, and either attach the update form or include in the email the name and position of anyone who has left or the name, employer, job title, and contact information (phone, mailing address, and email) of the new members.
Chapters are required by law to retain certain records for certain periods of time. Click here to seeIowa AEYC's Record Retention Policy. If you have additional questions feel free to contact Iowa AEYC.
As an affiliate of NAEYC, Iowa AEYC has a history of supporting evidence-based, developmentally appropriate practices through our efforts, both in professional development offerings and in our communications and advocacy work. Iowa AEYC is an approved training organization in Iowa legislation and per the Iowa Department of Human Services, which require state-wide policies to offer training.
In 2009, our state Governing Board approved policies for chapters to use trainers and policies for awarding training certificates. Any conference, workshop, training, or chapter meeting providing an Iowa AEYC training certificate must follow policy. This policy includes Iowa AEYC chapter co-sponsored professional development with another organization if Iowa AEYC provides the certificate or is listed on the certificate as co-sponsor.
