Community Action Agency is governed by a passionate, dedicated, and hardworking group of community volunteers.

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. Board members represent the interests of the community and provide a perspective that is respectful of the people they represent. The Community Action Agency Board of Directors meets the third Wednesday of every month, excluding August, at 12:00 noon or 4:00 at its Main Office.
