The first PDG B-5 local planning committee (LPC) meeting was held in Region 7: Yuma. The meeting was attended by 15 community representatives and 3 ADE staff. The LPC was given an overview of the plan for the PDG B-5 planning year, as well as given an opportunity to join the local planning committee for their region. Attendees had many good ideas on how to leverage the existing collaboration networks (i.e. the Early Childhood Collaborative) and how to supplement those networks with opportunities for private and family care providers to be able to participate. The group is excited to get things underway!
