Get Involved with PIC!
The PIC Board is looking for community members to join Board committees! Participating in a committee is a great way to learn about PIC, meet other families, and have fun giving back to your community.  Join us as we work together to ensure that PIC continues to thrive. 

Have a skill or a passion to share?  We want to hear from you!  
All members of the PIC community are welcome to join a Board committee. Interested? Contact getinvolved@parentinfantcenter.org to learn more about how to get involved.

Here are the Board committees currently looking for new members. . . 

ArtStart Committee
Each October, we celebrate creativity and community at ArtStart, PIC's biggest fundraising event of the year.  ArtStart is a “night out” where parents, staff, alumni, and friends enjoy a wonderful exhibition of children's art, food and cocktails, silent auction bidding, and more to raise funds for tuition assistance, programs, and major initiatives. Join the ArtStart committee and help us create a fantastic evening of food, friends and fundraising!  

Sustainability Task Force
The Sustainability Task Force focuses on supporting and expanding environmentally friendly practices at PIC. Ongoing projects include: tending our new native plant gardens, reducing waste through composting, increasing energy efficiency in our buildings, and sharing sustainability news and ideas with the community. And we're always on the lookout for new ideas and initiatives! We welcome all new members and any amount of time you're able to give! We meet approximately 6 times per year and as needed for any projects we're involved in. To learn more, contact: Jill Shashaty (jillshashaty@gmail.com).

Community Connections Committee
The Community Connections Committee creates and facilitates opportunities for PIC families to connect with one another and to connect with PIC teachers and administrators, encouraging and motivating families to be involved in the life and direction of the Center by strengthening and supporting the classroom room parents and by hosting center-wide community events. The Community Connections Committee also works to strengthen PIC’s connections with the broader community, including the local schools and universities, organizations that support PIC families, and other neighborhood partners. Join us as we work to foster a rich, inclusive greater PIC community. 

Development Committee
The Development Committee supports PIC initiatives to keep the cost of quality early childhood education and care affordable to all families, regardless of socioeconomic background. The Committee works to strengthen individual donor cultivation for major and planned gifts, cultivate corporate and foundation giving opportunities, explore new community and research partnerships for shared revenue, assess the potential and feasibility of a capital campaign, and instill a culture of giving throughout the PIC community. If you have a background in fundraising or a passion for giving, we’d love to hear from you!

Finance Committee
PIC's finance committee provides guidance to PIC on matters relating to budgeting, capital planning, and key decision making relating to revenue and expenses. The committee also contributes guidance on financial considerations relating to special projects or endeavors of PIC. The committee seeks to find the right balance between good financial stewardship and advancing PIC's mission of making high-quality early childhood education accessible to all. The committee welcomes new members with a background in business, finance, and/or accounting.
