On August 31 st Aaron Franklin, Executive Director of Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri (CAPNCM), was elected to serve on the national Community Action Partnership (CAP) Board of Directors as the board Treasurer. The national CAP conference was held in Austin, TX this year from August 30th to September 2nd , and was a year in which regional and national elections took place in the Community Action network to determine who will serve on the 2016-18 national board.
“We are thrilled Aaron Franklin is joining the board of the Community Action Partnership,” stated Denise Harlow, CEO. “The national association serves the local member Community Action Agencies and state associations and we take seriously the role of fiscal oversight and responsibility. Having Mr. Franklin on board provides us with a Treasurer who understands the local and state association perspective which will enhance our ability to be good fiscal stewards, while being transparent with our membership regarding the Partnership’s fiscal health and stability.”
The national board is made up of six (6) officers and ten (10) regional representatives, and every two (2) years an election is held to determine who is seated. On the evening of September 1st , during the evening awards gala event, Franklin was officially installed as the Treasurer of the CAP Board of Directors. This will be Franklin’s first term serving on the board.
“I’m humbled by the support received from my peers all across the United States. I’m excited for the opportunity to serve the Partnership in this capacity, and look forward assisting the entire board, and the CAP staff, in furthering the mission of the organization,” says Franklin. “This is a great way to educate myself with the pressing issues that affect our Community Action network, and gain additional knowledge to provide improved leadership to CAPNCM!”
