Board of Directors

The ELC of Seminole Board of Directors is a group of at least 15 community members whose composition is designated by Florida State Statues. The board is made up of mandatory appointees from various agencies, private sector members and three governor appointees (including the Board Chair). ELC of Seminole bylaws also allow three seats for community “at-large” members.

Board meetings are public and child care providers can attend.

All Board of Director and Committee meetings are open to the public and allow for public input. These meetings will be held at the Early Learning Coalition of Seminole County, 280 Hunt Park Cove Suite 1020, Longwood, FL 32750-7567. The meetings may be accessed via teleconference by dialing in (712) 451-0744 and enter the participant code 716577.
