New NCCA Director

Hello valued NCCA member:

Let me introduce myself. My name is Cindy Lehnhoff and I am your new Director of the NCCA. I have 36 years of experience as a provider of early care and education. I am also a former Board Member of the NCCA. Additionally I have served on the NECPA Board for 15+ years. In case you have not heard NCCA has joined the NECPA family as the advocacy and lobby arm of the overall organization which also includes the NAC and CCP Credentials. Our team is working diligently to move NCCA into an organization that brings meaningful and consistent representation for you in Washington D.C. As a member of NCCA you have a voice in government that is asking our US Legislators to support bills that improve the lives of children, families, and early care and education professionals like yourself.

We are also in the process of updating our website,, to include newsletters that keep you informed about our activities on your behalf and present professional development opportunities for you. You can also look forward to hearing from us periodically by email.
