ACF, CAPLAW, NASCSP, NCAF, NCAP, OCS ... Working in community action can feel like swimming in a bowl of alphabet soup!  Over the next few months, ACAAA will be featuring one of our state, regional, or national partners in each e-newsletter to highlight who they are, how they help to sustain our network, and how our network can engage with them. We encourage all agency leaders to go to the featured partner’s website to learn more. 

This month's focus is on the National Community Action Foundation, or
NCAF.
From www.ncaf.org: 

“The National Community Action Foundation, founded in 1981 and based in Washington, DC, is a leading voice on federal anti-poverty policy and serves as the federal advocate for the nationwide Community Action network, comprised of locally-based, anti-poverty organizations known as Community Action Agencies and their state and federal partners.”
The primary way ACAAA member agencies support NCAF is through a subscription to CAPFacts, a regularly distributed update about policies and events that affect Community Action Agencies and the programs they operate. (The Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association pays for a CAPFacts subscription for each member agency as a benefit.)

Another way to support this vital partner is by participating in “Essential Workshops,” led by NCAF Executive Director David Bradley, and other educational opportunities, such as the annual NCAF conference. The first Essential Workshops webinar held during the Biden administration will take place on Monday, February 8, at 1:00 p.m. Central Time.  Read a summary, below, in the Educational Action “National Partners” section, or access the registration form directly here.
The University of Arkansas System is now offering a 5% tuition discount to CAA employees and/or their family members who are currently attending or who plan to enroll in the U of A’s eVersity. This new “eVersity Alliance”—being made available to member agencies in the Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA)—is part of an undertaking by association Chief Operations Officer Terry Bearden to develop new partnerships that will benefit ACAAA member agencies and their staff. 

The University of Arkansas’s eVersity is “a 100 percent-online institution created ... to serve students who are unable to access traditional higher education campuses.”  Among the eVersity staff are academic advisers able to provide assistance with applying for financial aid and determining whether previously earned college credits are transferable.
Those interested in participating in the “eVersity Alliance” should contact ACAAA Executive Director Terry Bearden at tbearden@acaaa.org or, by phone, at (501) 372-0807 to receive the tuition discount code.
The Board of Directors of the Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA) will meet via online conference call for its February 2021 board of directors meeting on Wednesday, February 17, at 10:00 a.m. • Call-in information will be distributed in advance of the meeting.
NASCSP—National Association for State Community Services Programs—will be holding its 2021 Winter Training Conference, subtitled “Building the Road Ahead,” as a virtual event, scheduled for March 8-12.  •  “The 2021 Winter Training Conference offers valuable opportunities for professionals from around the country to come together and discuss strategies for meeting new challenges in improved performance, innovation, and accountability in the fight to change the face of poverty across the nation.”  The conference will be separated into two tracks: “The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) track focuses on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) CSBG initiatives, [while] the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) track focuses on the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) WAP initiatives and grantee management issues.”  •  For more information, or to register, visit the NASCSP website here.
CAPLAW—Community Action Program Legal Services, Inc.—will be holding its 2021 Training Conference virtually this year: Scheduled for Tuesday, June 29 - Thursday, July 1, 2021, next year’s location will be “in the cloud”!  •  “In light of so many unknowns, we decided to move our conference entirely online. We hope this will allow more members in the Community Action network to participate safely and remotely in our in-depth, expert-led sessions.”  Session track topics will include governance, financial, HR, and program/sustainability.  •  Registration opens in April 2021; for more information, visit here.
The Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA)—working in conjunction with the law firm of Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon & Galchus, P.C.—is making available to ACAAA members a series of on-demand trainings on such topics as COVID-19, harassment prevention, equal employment opportunity issues, and employee management.

The training session videos—available, behind a members-only wall, at the ACAAA website—include “COVID-19—Navigating a Pandemic,” “Harassment Prevention & EEO Training for Employees,” “Harassment Prevention & EEO Training for Supervisors,” and “Managing Employees in the Legal World of Today.”

Those interested are asked to contact ACAAA Executive Director Terry Bearden at tbearden@acaaa.org to request a username and password to access these sessions.
