Important information about CSEA/VOICE Professional Development Programs


We are in the process of renewing our contracts with OCFS/NYS. This year, the state budget process is more complicated due to anticipated changes in the federal budget.  As a result, NYS will be putting a hold on all contracts – including CSEA’s Professional Development Contract.

Until our contract is finalized, the CSEA WORK Institute will need to close the Professional Development program portals beginning Friday, March 31, 2017 at 5 p.m.  We will be working to get our Professional Development program portals opened back up as soon as we are able. These programs are very important to all of us.  That’s why the CSEA/VOICE members on the negotiating team made them a priority in our agreements with OCFS and NYS.

Call the Child Care Resource Center 877-483-2732 with any questions you may have about our Professional Development Programs. We will also post updates to our Facebook page as we receive them. Thank you for working with us through this administrative challenge.
