Northern Windsor & Orange Regional Council Recap – March 2018
The Northern Windsor and Orange County Building Bright Futures (BBF) council has been busy focusing on finding opportunities to strengthen early childhood programs in the region and look for ways to support the momentum of work that is happening. The Council, along with Councils across the state, had the opportunity to participate in the Act 166 Feedback process gathered through Building Bright Futures at the request of the Agency of Education. The council plans to keep up to date on the progress of this bill as well as implications changes might have locally.
The March Northern Windsor and Orange County BBF council meeting fell on the same day as the Early Childhood Day at the Legislature. Some members of the council were able to attend this event and took the opportunity to speak with legislators about issues facing the region and educate legislators on some of the initiatives and programs that are currently working. The Steering Committee was able to meet in March to plan for future meetings and discuss ways in which to strengthen the region through trainings, events, and meaningful conversations that would be useful to have at a regional level.
