Our Work

Our primary focus in to be the collective voice in Lansing. We have engaged the services of MainStreet Legislative Consulting LLC.  They are a division of the Small Business Association of Michigan (SBAM).

What is an Association?

In general, an association is a group of persons banded together for a specific purpose. To qualify under section 501(c) of the Code, the association must have a written document, such as articles of association, showing its creation. At least two persons must sign the document, which must be dated.

Our Events

Stay up to date with CPAOM through our events. We offer events for non-members and members. 

In doing our research it came to CPAOM’s attention that there are over 12,000 childcare providers in Michigan that do not have a collective voice when it comes to representation of their industry in Lansing.  For the past few years there have been some initiatives taken by local providers to strengthen the connection to Lansing. They have worked with the Grand Rapids Chamber in writing boiler plate language for bills that have passed as well as worked closely with LARA and Lansing through the pandemic to help with rules, regulations, and funding.

CPAOM, a 501 (c) 6 is an association founded to engage Michigan Licensed In-Home, Center, Group, Public, Private, Profit and Nonprofit Daycare providers in making changes for the betterment of our industry and those that we serve.
