How many of your members in your local affiliate/chapter recognize the fact that they are SECA members as well as members of your local and state affiliate?  If you’re a leader in a state with the multiple membership structure (Local, State, SECA, NAEYC), they might not be aware that they have a membership in the oldest early childhood organization in the South. 

Did You Know? 
  • SECA began as an early childhood professional association in the South in 1949 and is celebrating its 66th year as a “voice for Southern children”.
  • SECA has affiliates in 13 Southern states.  Click here to find information about our states. 
  • We have 17,000 members throughout the South and nation.
  • We send our members resources such as Dimensions of Early Childhood, Dimensions Extra, monthly member e-mails, The Leadership Letter and Public Policy Notes
  • SECA receives $22 for each member through your state dues structure.  The remainder goes to the local, state and NAEYC (if your state is affiliated). 

 SECA provides a resource page, Affiliate/Board Resources, that contains useful information, including print ready ads that can be placed in your newsletter.  You’ll need this password, SECA_leaders, in order to log in to the page. 

 SECA has a rich history in the South.  The First Forty Years and From SACUS to SECA:  A History of the Southern Early Childhood Association from 1990-2010 provide a fascinating look into the growth of the Association from a small group of dedicated individuals.
 SECA provides a variety of opportunities to become involved.  You’ll find that information on the Get Involved page located under the Join Us button on the home page of the website. 
Let us know what we can do to help your members learn more about their professional association.  We’ll be happy to send you informational materials that you can utilize at your meetings.
We know that this summer you’re in the planning stages to “rev up” activity again in the fall.   We have a quantity of print books that we’ll ship to you FREE to use as membership incentives, door prizes and anything else you can develop at the local level.  Just contact us at and let us know where to ship.
Don’t delay…..quantities are limited!  Limit of two boxes/titles per request.
