The Nanny Industry has definitely changed in the 17 years I have been involved. When I started in 1995, there were two Nanny Industry Associations: International Nanny Association (INA) and the National Association of Nannies (NAN). In 1998, the first National Nanny Recognition Week (NNRW) was formed. This year, NNRW will be celebrating its 14th year. Today, there are at least five organizations/groups that influence the Nanny Industry. Each month, we will be sharing with our readers a little update on what each of the groups are doing. This will include a link to their newsletter (if available) and other important information. Make sure to “sign up” for their newsletter, “Like” them on Facebook and “follow” them on Twitter.
