Leadership Structure

KARE Chapter of WECA is governed by a Leadership Council with two components:

  1. Executive Leadership: All leaders are considered equal, as they oversee management of the KARE chapter.
  2. Members at Large: Help to execute events, activities, and lead support groups; assist with engaging other WECA members.

We hold a major spring and fall membership event each year.

We operate support groups for directors/administrators, and family child care providers. Coming soon: a center staff support group.
