Legislation & Advocacy
The early learning industry is unique, our industry is governed by laws, rules, regulations, administrative code, and agencies at the local, state, and federal levels. FACCM has a full-time advocacy team made up of owners, directors, lobbyists, and advocates who work to educate and energize seasoned and newly-elected rule, law, and policy makers on the importance of early learning and fully funding our programs to serve the needs of our youngest citizens.
