The Partnership’s Annual Convention is the largest gathering of regional, state, and local Community Action practitioners in the United States, drawing more than 1,000 attendees each year. During this hybrid (onsite and virtual) convention, we will come together in person and online to showcase Community Action’s strengths, strategies, and achievements. We’ll also share our best practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, advocacy, management, program implementation, and capacity building. There is change ahead of us—for the better—as Community Action evolves, reinvents, and continues to achieve excellence.
Given the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation, we are closely monitoring our ability to hold the convention in-person. Please consider delaying purchasing your flight and/or hotel accommodations until closer to the convention and familiarize yourself with the NCAP, Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel, and airline change/cancellation policies. To comply with federal, state, and local health guidelines related to in-person gathering registration is on a first come, first served basis. If NCAP is unable to hold the convention in-person, the event will become virtual only and NCAP will adhere to the virtual event pricing.
