Community Action: 50 Years of Moving Forward

Community Action Partnership Convention gathered more than 1,300 staff, board and volunteers to commemorate 50 Years of Community Action and to forge a future vision.

For those who were able to be part of the convention, thank you for joining us! We know that for others, attendance may not have been possible. While we will share pictures and other mementos of the event in upcoming eNews and The Promise magazine, we wanted to share several items as soon as possible.
