2020 and 2021 Annual Events

CAAP Is going virtual for 2021.  We look forward to seeing you then.

Covid-19 Update:  Because of the pandemic, the 300 Community Action leaders and Self-Sufficiency Award winners from across the Commonwealth will not be able to converge in Harrisburg for two full days of learning, networking, and celebrating the achievements of our families and the staff who supported them along the way from poverty to financial stability.  The in-person conference was cancelled for 2020

CAAP is planning a virtual event for 2021 that will still offer the largest training and networking event the association hosts. It will still feature nationally known keynote speakers, workshop sessions, creative networking opportunities, and hopefully a virtual exhibit hall.

The CAAP 2021 annual Self-Sufficiency Awards, normally held at past conferences, will be included in the planned virtual event.  Each year, the association’s Self-Sufficiency Awards recognize the significant accomplishments of the award winners while showcasing how Community Action Agencies support a person's journey toward financial stability. The SSA ceremony is the highlight of the conference. Our award recipients share their stories, in-person and in their own words, about what their journey back to financial stability was like and how Community Action supported them along the way. Their stories reveal deeper societal trends that keep many citizens in this country from prospering. Our families’ successes are revealing and inspiring. 

Details on the 2021 virtual event will be made available here in early 2021.  Please come back and visit us again.
