Keeping up with Advocacy

As always, we look to our partners at Maryland Family Network to keep us updated on local, state, and federal public policy issues related to child care.  Dates for this year’s public policy meetings have been posted on the MFN website, along with meeting summaries and other important information.  We highly recommend joining the MFN email list so that you receive important advocacy information and can take action in a timely manner.
