Board Member Vacancies

The Early Learning Coalition of Broward County (ELC) is currently accepting applications from local business professionals to fill vacant seats on its Board of Directors.  Created through State Statute, the ELC administers more than $90 million in local, state and federal funds for child care subsidies, child care teacher training, and other functions to improve access to and quality of early childhood education for Broward’s children and families.  The ELC is guided by its Board of Directors. The Board consists of a combination of governor appointed members, local government and administrative agency leaders, child care professionals, and other local leaders.  Because this board makes decisions concerning public dollars, it is governed by Sunshine Law and State of Florida conflict laws. 

The ELC welcomes all interested business leaders and child care providers living in Broward County to join in its goal, to provide access to, and supports for the early learning of young children.  Interested individuals should download a copy of the Private Business  or Private Provider Board Member Nominating form and the Policies Governing Board Membership by clicking the link on “How to Get Involved” section of our website. 

Completed Nominating forms should be emailed to Irene Ramos at iramos@elcbroward.org.
