East Valley Chapter

About Us

East Valley Chapter is a local chapter of CEC focused on serving children, parents and professionals in the east valley area of Phoenix, Arizona. We are charted under AzCEC, our state unit of CEC. 

State units provide a means for networking, professional development, and information-sharing for members in our state. Their typical activities include sponsoring an annual conference and other professional development events, publishing a newsletter or journal, political advocacy, and supporting the activities and positions of the Council for Exceptional Children.
