Local councils are members of the community that meet to discuss and support ACDS in their county or counties. Each local council has a local council representative that serves as part of the State Executive Council. This council meets quarterly to discuss policies and procedures of the ACDS program as well as how to best implement ACDS in their regions. Ideally, membership includes representatives from:
family child care
child care resource and referral
Board of Education
child care directors/employers
For information on how to join the local council in your area, please contact your local council representative or the ACDS office.
