Community Action Agency (CAA) of Anne Arundel County has a tri-partite board system that is comprised of 15 members. There are five members each selected to represent the low-income sector, private sector and public sector.
The Board of Directors is structured with 1/3 representation from the consumer sector (low-income individuals and families in their community), 1/3 representation from the public sector (elected officials), and 1/3 representation from the private sector (representatives of business, industry, labor, faith-groups, law enforcement, education and other groups and interests in the community). The CAA Board of Directors is comprised of 15 members – five from each of the sectors.
Board members play an important role in guiding the agency and assisting people living in poverty.
