The Johnson County Empowerment/Early Childhood Iowa Area Board is seeking new members who are passionate about improving the lives of young children and welcome the opportunity to facilitate community collaboration and service coordination while allocating state funding to assist families with children ages 0-5. Board members will commit to serving a three-year term beginning October 2023.

Meetings are typically held on the third Thursday of each month via hybrid format.

Early Childhood Iowa Areas (ECIAs) support local citizens to lead collaborative efforts with education, health, and human service programs on behalf of children, families, and others residing in the area.  ECI efforts unite agencies, organizations, and community partners to speak with a shared voice to support, strengthen, and meet the needs of all young children and families with a focus on improving results for families with young children age 0-5.
