New England Child Life Professionals began in June 2005. A handful of local Child Life Specialists aimed to recreate a former regional Child Life networking group. At the same time, a group of Child Life directors were beginning to develop a forum for information sharing. These two groups merged and NECLP, Inc. was born in 2006.

We endeavor to be a community of Child Life professionals who represent all aspects of child life.  Our board currently represents over 40 years of experience working in various areas.  In October 2006, we had our first one day conference; the conference continues to be an annual event, attended by approximately 100 professionals and students.  We have also held networking nights; these sessions, now offered each March in celebration of Child Life Month, enrich who we are as professionals.  Various child life specialists have graciously offered their sites for these successful events.  We continue to collect annual membership dues in order to sponsor these events.
