Celebrating 45 years!

“To know that you can navigate the wilderness on your own—to know that you can stay true to your beliefs, trust yourself, and survive it—that is true belonging.” —Brené Brown

Exchange Press has been growing community and fostering collaboration among early childhood leaders for 45 years. Across those years, our community of caring—our readers, authors, colleagues, and strategic partners—has grown exponentially. Every one of you has played a role in defining the important work of our field and elevating the many voices of those who dedicate their lives to children. For everyone involved with Exchange Press, this work has been an endless avalanche of roses, and a never-ending opportunity to learn and evolve.

This spring, change is in the air at Exchange Press, as we launch a new membership. Members can access digital Exchange magazine articles, video content, live online events and recordings, expertly curated professional development resources, and exclusive membership offerings and discounts.

If you, like me, think there’s just nothing quite like the feeling of a print magazine in your hands, fear not! Exchange magazine will continue to be published quarterly in print and digital formats. Additionally, as we expand our digital offerings, we will be able to share more multimedia content in timely and innovative ways. (So, keep those articles and ideas rolling in!)

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing Exchange Press team. Change, even when welcome, is challenging. Our colleagues have been working around the clock for months to prepare for this “new beginning.” Web developers and designers have united with educators and editors to dig deep into how we can best highlight and elevate your work. It has been occasionally messy, and at times a little unnerving, but ultimately, we recognize that we share the opportunity to leap together, feet first, into something truly special. Welcome to the new era of Exchange Press. We are all so glad you’re along for the journey!

Sara Gilliam author and former editor of Exchange magazine.
