20 workshops, 5 pre-conference sessions, 4 keynote speakers, 2 State Secretaries, 1 Governor, and lots of great food!
On April 19, 20, and 21 the Community Action Association of Pennsylvania (CAAP) hosted the 2016 CAAP Annual Conference in Harrisburg, PA. This year’s conference was a great success! With more than 300 Community Action professionals attending, the CAAP's Annual Conference is the largest training and networking event the Association hosts. This year’s conference included 20 workshops, 5 pre-conference sessions, 4 keynote speakers, 2 State Secretaries, 1 Governor, and lots of great food! The 19th Annual Self-Sufficiency Awards (SSA) and the Distinguished Service Awards (DSA) programs are held in conjunction with the conference.
The Self-Sufficiency Awards section of the website features our 2016 award winners. Their stories reveal focused determination of those who have face the journey back to self-sufficiency head on. At some point in their lives, these individuals faced one or more life challenges that many people never have to encounter. It took a strong personal and community support network, in addition to extraordinary personal determination, to elevate themselves to self-sufficiency. Please take the time to read about our 10 award winners - they represent the heart of Community Action.
The Distinguished Service Awards section of the website features our 2016 award winners. CAAP takes great pride in the achievements of all of our member agencies, their staff, volunteers, community partners, and leaders. Some individuals and programs, however, go above and beyond the call of duty. We hope you enjoy reading about our innovative programing and top-notch leaders!
By the second week in May, most of the workshop presentations and handouts will be posted in the Workshop Overview section of the website so be sure to check back for those resources.
We also added a photo gallery section that features some of our favorite conference pictures.
