At the State Level: The Florida Association for Early Learning Leaders
The Florida Association of Early Learning Leaders (the "FL Affiliate") was formed in May 2103 under the direction of the Children's Forum. The FL Affiliate replaces the Directors Network operated by the Forum from 2008 to 2013. The benefits of the Directors Network continue to be available to our members, and additional benefits have been added as a result of our affiliation with the national Association.
