Organisational Membership

An organisation reaches peak performance when its people are powered by a shared understanding of their challenges and access to the knowledge and tools they need to meet these challenges. ECIA's Organisational Membership, available to all EC and ECI services and organisations, is a cost-effective way for you to provide your staff with the best available ECI resources to help them delivery quality services to your clients.

As an organisation or service in the ECI and EC sector, you and your staff would be well aware of the challenges we are currently facing with the introduction and implementation of the NDIS across Australia.

ECIA is working closely with NDIA and government to ensure the concerns and challenges that our members are facing are addressed promptly and appropriately.

ECIA encourages all organisations and services working in the ECI and EC sector to support ECIA as we continue to advocate for the rights of children with development delay and/or disabilities and their families.

By becoming an Organisational Member, you will be supporting ECIA to evaluate and comment on NDIS and related strategic directions that affect our sectors. You will also be demonstrating your commitment to the support and development of your staff by providing access to practice tools, resources and information - all of which will better equip your organisation and your staff to assist children with developmental delays and/or disabilities.
