FAQ

Have a question about becoming an ECIC member? We’ve got answers! Don’t forget that you can also learn more about our benefits and membership requirements.

New members can join online using the membership application. You can also print the application and mail it with payment to:

Early Childhood Initiatives Center

Bentonville, AR 72712

A center may choose the monthly membership fee by completing an ACH debit form and agreement. Your organization’s checking account will be debited the appropriate monthly fee on the 1st business day of each month. The center must agree to the contractual timeframe of September 1, 2016 – December 31, 2017. The 4 bonus months do not apply to the monthly membership program.

Once we receive your payment, we’ll activate your membership within 1-2 weeks and will ship your welcome packet and membership decal.

An ECIC membership is good for one year. Centers that pay the annual membership fee in full prior to September 1, 2016 will receive 4 bonus membership months (membership year = September 1, 2016 – December 31, 2017).

All payments received after September 1 will be prorated based on $15 per month (licensed for 99 or less) or $25 per month (licensed for 100 or more) and $5 per month for each additional site.

Most, such as trainings and resource center, can be accessed by any staff member from your organization by using their TAPP ID (listing your center’s name as their place of employment).
