Take a look at all the amazing benefits of connecting with your local chapter at the conference and beyond!

Each active chapter in Michigan offers unique benefits based on the respective chapters leadership, foundation and structure. Here are just some examples of how you may benefit from being connected to your local chapter!

  • Provides a community for professionals to feel connected to others working with Infants, toddlers and their families. Opportunity for networking within communities, professions, across the state and nation.
  • Connects members to local mentors and other professionals who can provide support, training and reflective supervision.
  • Allows members to connect and build leadership skills through chapter leadership opportunities, volunteer opportunities, mentorships, political advocacy and ambassadorship.
  • Links members from a diversity of professional settings, experience levels, backgrounds and communities.
  • Gives professionals access to a local professional “home” where they can receive training, resources and stay up to date on the latest research and development in Infant Mental Health and Social-Emotional Development.
  • Locally supports the growth of a competent workforce and policy supporting the optimum development of infants, toddlers and families.
