Board Composition & Opportunities:

Since 1968, community action agencies have been required to have "tripartite governing boards" which are comprised of:

One-third democratically selected respresentatives of low-income indivIduals and families who reside in the geographic area being served by the agency.

One-third elected officials, holding office at their time of selection.

One-third private sector chosen from "business, industry, labor, religious, law enforcement, education, or other major groups and interests in the community served.

The CAPLP Board of Directors is responsible for assuring that our organization continues to assess and respond to the causes and conditions of poverty in our community, achieve anticpated family and community outcomes, and remain adminstratively and fiscally sound.
