Sign Up to Earn Your CCAP!

This year the National Community Action Partnership (NCAP) has changed the Certified Community Action Professional (CCAP) program process.  For starters, you no longer need to be in Community Action for two years, you can sign up to go for your CCAP at any time. 

We, as an association, are still able to put everyone in to get a group discount with every fourth registration for free.  The cost to attend is $600 per person, once we have a total count of how many will apply, MCA will send the payment into NCAP and charge the agencies the amount due, with a discount if applicable.  So the more that register, the lower the cost may be for everyone.  If you are interested in signing up for CCAP please fill out the form here to let us know that you are interested and we can be sure to count you in receiving a discount if there are enough registered.  When you fill out your application in the NCAP Member Portal you will need a discount code to use at the time of application submission and payment, please email Nicole for a code.  Deadline to apply is Oct 31st. 

We are putting together a study group, be sure to mark on the CCAP form above that you are interested in the study group and your information will be forwarded on to the group leader.  If you have any questions, you can contact Nicole.

MCA Summer Conference Wrap Up

Conference Sponsors

Michigan Community Action held its 2023 annual summer conference in July at Crystal Mountain Resort in the northwestern portion of the lower peninsula.  Some 250 members of the community action family gathered for the multi-day event; everyone from executive directors to program staff to board members were in attendance, representing agencies from border to border, from Monroe County all the way to Gogebic County.  Over 50 sessions were offered, providing everything from technical know-how to inside program knowledge to best practices on all-things community action. Keynote speakers provided inspiration and motivation for attendees who all share the common bond of fighting poverty in their local communities. There was even time for building connections with colleagues, through a variety of networking events and volunteer opportunities. A productive time was had by all!
