The Metro Area Affiliate serves members from Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and other outlying counties.

We meet every other month on the second Friday at the YMCA Association offices 9500 SW Barbur Boulevard in Portland, Oregon. Our meetings begin at 7:30 a.m. and conclude around 9:00 a.m. Each month our topic is different but is always relevant to a variety of centers and environments.

Each year we offer training for directors and lead teachers in the community. The Multnomah County Affiliate Board also coordinates with OAEYC to educate other child care professionals on the Director’s Certificate Program and share our stories how the program has changed our centers and our professions in Child Care.

Please join us in making a difference with the Metro Area Affiliate. To learn more about this affiliate contact Kelly Skopil: or (503) 657-9795 for more information.
