Member Benefits

The Early Childhood Education Association of Colorado is here to REPRESENT your interests, help to GROW your business, and to SUPPORT your programs. Here are some of the benefits ECEA members receive.

REPRESENT your interests

As an ECEA member you have a team of three lobbying firms actively representing the private sector to shape policies that impact your business and the children you educate on a day to day basis. ECEA members have an exclusive voice among major policy-setting groups in Colorado’s ECE advocacy and regulatory community.

The ONLY voice representing the unique business interests of program owners, operators and administrators. While there are dozens of ECE related organizations throughout the state; ECEA is the ONLY organization exclusively dedicated to impacting legislative issues affecting those who employee and lead our industry statewide. During the 2017 Colorado Legislative Session, ECEA conducted over 1,150 of direct advocacy contact hours in support of our members.

The ECEA 2019 Bill Tracker will be posted on our website and updated daily throughout the legislative session. With this tool you will be able to easily track the progress and status of proposed legislation. This tool will include all Bills introduced that have the potential to impact early care and education providers throughout Colorado.
