Child Life of Greater New York (CLGNY) is a membership organization of child life directors, managers, coordinators, representatives of one-person programs, child life educators and independent consultants in the field throughout the Greater New York area. Membership is extended to each site’s director and an additional managerial designee. Since inception over 20 years ago, this organization has embodied a culture of caring and a sense of community that are vital to empowering children and families to master challenging life events.
Over the past few years it has been a pleasure to see this organization grow and expand with many new and exciting additions including new board positions, new members and new programs. I am truly proud of where we are today and excited to be part of what is yet to come.
I look forward to working with you all over the next couple of years to continue on the path to make this group reach new heights and continue to expand the learning opportunities for all of our members, both new and seasoned. Please feel free to contact me directly with any ideas you may want to share about our organization. I am looking forward to a productive and creative 2014 for CLGNY!!
