Learn more about NBCDI and the development of a local chapter during the 2nd International Infant Toddler Conference!

For the past 38 years, the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) has been steadfast in its mission to improve  and advance the quality of life for Black Children and their families through advocacy and education. In many regions of the country, NBCDI is represented by affiliate chapters that provide direct services at the community level. Three individuals, Shyra Burrell, Nichol Noble, and Stacey Mwongozi, have stepped forward to organize a team that will assist in developing a Tulsa Interest Group of NBCDI. To ensure an affiliate chapter will be able to support the mission and vision of NBCDI and become a self-sustaining organization that will implement effective programming for their community, the national organization has certain guidelines that must be followed by the organizing group. The organizing team must exist as an Interest Group for one year before being considered for affiliate chapter approval by NBCDI. The organizing team in Tulsa will begin its journey in the spring of 2011. Dr. Carol Brunson Day, President and CEO of NBCDI, will visit Tulsa to be a keynote speaker and presenter at the 2nd International Infant & Toddler Conference in April. If you are interested in learning more about NBCDI, please visit their website at www.nbcdi.org. If you would like more information about how you can join the organizing team in the Tulsa area, please feel free to contact Stacey Mwongozi at smwongozi@yahoo.com.
