OVERVIEW

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.
