Conference Agenda and Workshop Descriptions

With more than 250 Community Action professionals attending, the Community Action Association of Pennsylvania’s Annual Conference is the largest training and networking event the Association hosts.  It features nationally known keynote speakers, 16 workshop sessions and an exhibit hall.

The CAAP’s annual Self-Sufficiency Awards program is held in conjunction with the conference. Each year, the Association’s Self-Sufficiency Awards recognize the significant accomplishments of the award winners while showcasing what Community Action Agencies do to help people move themselves toward self-sufficiency. Their stories illustrate how barriers to self-sufficiency can be overcome when individuals accept the challenge of pursuing the opportunities provided by their community.
