• Chicago Metro Membership Meeting 10-27-16

    Thank you to Chicago Metro Members & Friends!

    We had a very successful reorganization meeting for Chicago Metro on October 27 at National Lewis University! We spent 2 hours discussing what the new (and improved!) Chicago Metro Chapter sees as priorities, how to serve the area and what the Chicago Chapter should do for the field. The respect for each other and for the process was evident as we discussed these three issues in small groups and debriefed in the large group. A big THANK YOU goes out to Safiyah Jackson for facilitating the group through this process!

    Illinois AEYC looks forward to our next meet on Thursday, December 1st from 5-7PM, 122 S. Michigan Ave at NLU.

  • Invitation to Chicago Metro Members

    Illinois AEYC has been informed that Chicago Metro has dissolved the organization effective 9-27-16. On behalf of Illinois AEYC, I’d like to assure you that your membership will continue with NAEYC and Illinois AEYC through your current membership year.

    After conversations with NAEYC, Illinois AEYC would like to host a membership meeting on Thursday, October 27th from 5:30-7:30pm to begin a dialogue about forming a new chapter in Chicago. It is imperative that Chicago have representation on the Illinois AEYC Board of Directors and a strong presence in the state. We will be discussing the options you will have next year for membership as the restructuring is in full force next September. I look forward to working with you in order to meet the needs of AEYC members in Chicago.

    Meeting Location:

    National Louis University-Chicago Campus

    (122 S. Michigan Ave.)

    Chicago, IL

    Light snacks will be provided. Please RSVP to Tonya Frehner @ tonya@illinoisaeyc.org by Monday, October 24th at 4:00pm and let us know if you plan to attend. If you have any questions, you can email them to Tonya as well.
