 PRESS RELEASE JUNE 27, 2014 
 
PARTNERSHIP LEADERSHIP CHANGES
 
On June 25, 2014 the Board of Directors of the Community Action Partnership separated its relationship with President/CEO Don Mathis. The Board expresses appreciation to Don for his years of service to the Partnership. We reiterate our commitment to continue the quality services that help CAAs to change lives and improve communities. To ensure that decision-making and leadership is provided the Board appointed current Board Chair Tom Tenorio as Acting President/CEO and Denise Harlow as Interim Chief Operating Officer. They will work together with Avril Weisman, longtime Chief Administrative Officer. During this period the Board's Personnel Committee will plan and carry out a transition to a new President/CEO.
 
Plans continue for the many quality offerings scheduled for the upcoming Annual Convention scheduled for August 19-23, 2014 in Washington D.C. The 50th Anniversary of Community Action will be commemorated and our future of innovation and commitment will be celebrated. The network of Community Action Agencies has worked hard to make America a better place to live. The Board and staff of the Partnership remain committed to this Promise. We look forward to working with the national partners and the network on behalf of low-income residents.
