Dear Texas Licensed Childcare Association Member,

Welcome! We are proud to have you as a member of TLCCA. This network of early childhood professionals in Texas is here to support you as you make a powerful impact on the children in our care.

My name is Traci Mackintosh and it is an honor to be serving as TLCCA President. I have been involved with this organization since 2011 when I enrolled as a member while working on my CDA. I started by going to the North Central Texas affiliate monthly lunch meetings and soon realized what a wonderful set of resources the other men and women were. We trained on important and relevant topics as well as shared best practices. After about a year, I was elected to be our affiliate’s Area Representative for the state board. After a few state meetings I was hooked - I met professionals from all levels of the industry, learned the importance of a legislative voice, and formed business relationships with vendors at conferences. Now I am serving as the state board President and it has been a fantastic and rewarding experience.

One of our core values, and I’m paraphrasing, is doing what’s right/best for the children we serve by running quality centers of all types – independent, corporate, franchised, etc. We do this through training managers, owners and staff at state conferences and local affiliate meetings and by being active participants with any legislature involving early childhood education. The organization’s mission fits well with my own vision and I attribute a lot my professional growth to TLCCA.

Thank you for being a TLCCA member and I encourage you to become involved at all levels. If you need any assistance or ideas on how to get involved, please reach out to us - TLCCA@gmail.com.

 

“Change the world of a child and you change the world.”

 

Sincerely,

Traci Mackintosh
