Dear CAAEYC Member,

If you were with us in Ontario at the Annual Conference and Expo, we unveiled the new image for California during the Annual General Membership meeting. With the new image also comes a new organizational structure - a chapter network - beginning in July. As part of our brand alignment with NAEYC, CAEYC becomes CAAEYC.

As the new organizational structure takes its shape, the CAAEYC Bylaws must be amended to align with the new chapter network.

Beginning on Monday, June 6 at 8:00am the online voting process will be available for you to cast your vote for:

  • Proposed Bylaws Amendments

Voting will close on Thursday, June 22 at 5:00pm.


The CAAEYC Board of Directors has approved proposed amendments to the CAAEYC Bylaws to propose to the CAAEYC Membership for their approval.  Final authority for Bylaws amendments rest with the members. The changes were researched and proposed through the National Dialogue and Governance Ad Hoc Committees, while working with a nonprofit governance attorney, Chris Delfino of the Delfino-Madden law firm.  The changes reflect the following priorities: 

  1. To ensure that CAAEYC Bylaws meet all current California State laws and regulations.
  2. To change the composition of the Board of Directors positions to reflect the new chapter governance structure (e.g., every Chapter will identify a designated representative to serve on the CAAEYC State Board of Directors).
  3. To change the terms and roles of the Chapter Representatives to stagger terms to maintain continuity of leadership at the State Board level.
  4. To establish a permanent Standing Committee for Chapter Relations and Development to ensure the growth and sustainability of Chapters statewide.

We encourage members to thoroughly read the Proposed Bylaws Amendments along with the current Bylaws.

Should members have questions or need clarification, please contact Deidre Bryant, CAAEYC Executive Director, by email:
