[September 04, 2008]  Ten local representatives, including volunteer board members, attended the Community Action Partnership annual convention Aug. 26-29 in Chicago. The theme was "Sowing the Seed of Change."

Auto RepairThe Community 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.

"I was thrilled to have both staff and governing board members attend the conference this year," said Angela Stoltzenburg, executive director. "It's an important opportunity to learn about the fight against poverty at the national level. We are part of an exciting network. We have forward-thinking partners."

Local representatives were Stoltzenburg, Kathy Inman, Ellen Burbage, Kathy Shepherd, Kimberly Lucas and Angie Jenkins of Lincoln. Courtney Stewart of Illiopolis, Anna Richardson of Bath, Phib Hedden of Havana and Steve Lobb of Clinton also attended. Attendees learned about a variety of best practices and innovative ways to combat poverty at the local level. Lobb served on a panel regarding the agency's 2005 transition when it lost longtime executive director, Jane Poertner.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois serves the low-income and seniors in Piatt, Fulton, Logan, Menard, Mason and DeWitt counties.
