State Advisory Council (SAC)

Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council is the state’s Governor-appointed, primary advisory body on the well-being of children prenatal through age 8 and their families. Building Bright Futures serves as Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council (SAC) to inform the Governor, Administration, and Legislature on policy and systems improvements for children and their families.

The SAC brings together early childhood leaders and decision-makers from across sectors to better coordinate and enhance services for young children. The SAC does this in partnership with BBF’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council Network, which includes 12 Regional Councils and 7 VECAP Committees.

The SAC identifies early childhood policy priorities each year and develops annual policy recommendations around these priorities, using the VECAP and up-to-date data.

Policy Recommendations Title 33 V.S.A § Chapter 46: Building Bright Futures Council Bylaws BBF Statement on Diversity, Equity, Social Justice and Inclusion


The members of the State Advisory Council represent a cross-section of accomplished professionals working to improve child well-being in the health, education, and early care fields.
