Governance

ELCFV believes governance is key to a strong successful organization. Responsibilities include: formulating key policies and strategic goals, helping evaluate and manage risk, be capable stewards of the resources of the organization, including reviewing annual budgets, financials and evaluating operations. As well as encouraging identification, forecasting and planning for both financial and program supports

Board of Directors

The Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties Board of Directors is comprised of public and private sector representatives from Flagler and Volusia Counties.

The makeup of the board is mandated by state legislation and includes a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 members. ELCFV’s Bylaws state that, to the extent possible, the board should consist of equal representation from both Flagler and Volusia Counties. Board members are volunteers and are not compensated for their service on the Coalition board.

The Governor of the State of Florida appoints the Chair and two other board members, who must meet the same qualifications as private-sector business members appointed by the Coalition under Section 1002.83, F.S. To apply for a governor-appointed position, please apply online at http://www.flgov.com/appointments.

The Board of Directors meets six (6) times per year during the months of August, October, January, March, May and June:

  • 4th Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.
  • Regular meetings rotate between Flagler and Volusia Counties
  • Special meeting may be called, as needed.

ELCFV Board Members are required to:

  • Attend regular meetings
  • Participate in committees
  • Develop core knowledge of early childhood development, School Readiness and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten
  • Remain updated on current trends in child development, School Readiness (SR) and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)

We are fortunate to have an active, involved board of directors fully committed to the pursuit of quality early education and care for our children.

If you are interested in becoming a board member or would like more information, please contact DJ Lebo, Chief Executive Officer at (386) 323-2400 ext. 193 or djlebo@elcfv.org.
