* * * Pre-Convention LEADERSHIP DAY
Join your Community Action colleagues for a special pre-convention day of learning and networking. Leadership Day is targeted to Executive Directors and Emerging Leaders. The event begins at noon on Tuesday August 19th with lunch and a speaker. The group will then break into three tracks: New Executive Directors, Seasoned/Veteran Executive Directors, and Emerging Leaders.
The agenda of each track are being finalized but will include issues such as finance, risk management, data collection and analysis, bundling services, advocacy, and economic development. Speakers from Wipfli, Bolder Advocacy, Nonprofit Risk Management Center, Coalition on Human Needs, and others will engage the group in dialogue and networking opportunities will be provided.
This is the 6th year of our Emerging Leaders focus and our 2nd pre-con dedicated to Executive Directors. Based on last year's feedback, we have divided the EDs into New and Seasoned/Veterans.
We hope you will plan on joining Leadership Day. There is a cost to help cover lunch and pre-registration is required. Please click here to register.
* * * Pre-convention COMMUNITY SERVICE DAY
Community Action Partnership and United Planning Organization (UPO), the Community Action Agency in Washington, DC, will be in Action with volunteers from across the country and community partners on August 19th at the Azeeze Bates Early Learning Center. Members of the Washington, DC community will join Community Action professionals in a beautification of the learning center and the children's play area and will create an herb garden.
The afternoon event will be a Community Service Day project, offered in conjunction with the Community Action Partnership Annual Convention, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Community Action Network.
Partners in this effort will include Health Mobiles, the mobile technology lab, parenting support resources and games for the kids. Community Action professionals with expertise in resume development can aid in reviewing resumes and helping customers in the mobile tech lab.
