MCA’s summer conference will bring hundreds of Community Action Agency staff and supporters to the beautiful “up North” setting that is Crystal Mountain Resort, July 10-12. This year, with the participation of our friends at the Bureau of Community Action and Economic Opportunity, the agenda will include even more impactful professional development tracks focusing on issues at the top of Community Action’s priorities:

  • CAA Board Roles and Responsibilities
  • Human Resources and Financial Management
  • FACSPro and Technology
  • Weatherization Assistance Program management
  • Marketing and Communications
  • A series of Best Practices presentations on model agency programs

Take time to relax and learn from colleagues in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Make a bid on one of the items featuring in our live and silent auctions and take a ride down the resort’s Alpine slide—a fun and exciting way to support Community Action’s work in Michigan and the US!
