[SEPT. 27, 2006]
After one year in the CIEDC executive director
position, Angela Stoltzenburg has represented the local Community
Action agency at the national level. The 2006
national convention of the Community Action Partnership was
Sept. 5-8 in Orlando, Fla.
Action Partnership was established in 1971 as the National
Association of Community Action Agencies and is the national
organization representing the interests of the 1,000 Community
Action agencies, working to fight poverty at the local level.
"The national conference was a great opportunity for me to see
the big picture of community," Stoltzenburg said. "It really is
incredible to see the uniqueness of each Community Action agency.
Community Action works because it focuses on the specific needs at
the local level across the United States."
