Child Care Board Recruits Members

The NIH Child Care Board seeks interested NIH federal employees to fill multiple board vacancies for 2021-2024. Individuals will begin serving in September 2021.

The NIH Child Care Board serves two primary functions: 

  • Advises on child and family programs and policies.
  • Advocates for affordable, accessible and quality child care for the NIH community.

You need not be a child development expert to join—just an NIH federal employee interested in child care, resources for parents/grandparents/caregivers or work-life issues who is willing to participate in the work.

Members serve for 3 years, are required to attend 7 board meetings per calendar year, and are expected to serve on at least 1 board committee. Participation is an official duty, requires supervisor approval and may be included as a non-critical element on an employee’s performance plan. 

For a description of requirements and an online application, visit Application deadline is Friday, Apr. 9.
