New Resource Training & Orientation Tool for Public CAA Tripartite Boards

Board Roles & Responsibilities: Public Community Action Agencies PowerPoint

Free Publication!

This presentation was created in response to a need in the network for training and orientation materials that state Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) offices, state associations, and individual Community Action Agencies (CAAs) can use to educate their own boards and staff that work with the board on the board’s vital role in the organization. This presentation is specifically for tripartite boards of public CAAs and acts as a guide for those training or orientating board members on the board’s responsibilities.

The various ways we envision the Community Action network using the presentation include:

  • Giving the presentation in its entirety;
  • Presenting the slides in sections as noted on the webpage; and/or
  • Augmenting an existing presentation with specific slides from this presentation.
