The Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) is a professional membership organization for serious business owners who want to learn dynamic ways to grow their business, establish and implement Best Practices, and are thought leaders in the household staffing industry.

Joining APNA and its board has made a huge difference in my life because of the people who belong to this organization. Great people from all over the country who do what I do. We are not a huge group. Our getting together provides us with a fabulous opportunity to learn from our peers and to discuss our shared issues. While we are from all different age groups and backgrounds we have the somewhat unique common ground of owning childcare agencies.

It’s crucial for our clients to know how hard we work to develop our expertise and make our industry professional. There are people who do run fly by night operations, and then there are the people who have opted to join APNA. You can’t just pay your dues and belong. There is a process for membership. You have to be willing to have all your paperwork/website scrutinized. No asking inappropriate/illegal questions no matter how much you might want to know the answers. All your contracts and forms are going to be reviewed. You have to conduct yourself ethically and uphold professional standards as set out by the association. When you are accepted to join this organization, you make a commitment to excellence.

So belonging to APNA has enriched my life, gotten me away from desk for a few days, and has provided me with wonderful resources to help me in my professional life. Personally, I now have some terrific friends whom I would have never met. I get to hang out with them at conference–usually in nice places– and I get to learn from them all year long.”
