The National CACFP Forum Board is Seeking Dedicated Individuals to Serve on our Board of Directors.
A bit about being a board member:
"I’ve enjoyed being the Treasurer for The National CACFP Forum board this past year and a half. I have been able to expand many of my skills, and enjoyed getting to know the various board members. I was able to attend the National CACFP Leadership Conference in D.C. and was able to be an advocate for our CACFP programs, child care providers and families in my state and nationally. It was a great opportunity to learn from other CACFP programs and to learn from and interact with legislative staff and see that side of our program. I really enjoyed learning more about the Food Research Action Center and the advocacy work being done. This has been a wonderful experience and I have been so glad to be a part of such a wonderful organization with a great vision and passion that speaks to me personally and look forward to many more years ahead with this program."Ipek Taffe, The National CACFP Forum Board of Directors Treasurer 2015-present."
