Social Action
While community action agencies have shifted quickly and nimbly to ensure the continued delivery of vital services to their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizations responsible for providing training and technical assistance were forced to rethink the methods used to provide training and technical assistance to their stakeholders. 

The Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA)—in partnership with the Association of Nationally Certified ROMA Trainers and Implementers (ANCRT)—hosted the first-ever Nationally Certified ROMA Implementer (NCRI) Virtual Classroom session on April 23 and 24, and May 1. The interactive, online sessions allowed five candidates from three Arkansas community action agencies to complete Phase 2 of their certification process, which had been delayed when travel and congregate meetings were suspended in March. 

The NCRI Virtual Classroom was successful in preparing the Arkansas candidates for the final phase of certification—i.e., developing a portfolio to demonstrate their knowledge of ROMA concepts and the ability to apply that knowledge to improve their agencies’ implementation of the full ROMA cycle. 

Shown in above photo are: Master ROMA Trainers Carey Gibson, MSW, NCRP, PRI Project Manager; and Dr. Barbara Mooney, Director, Association of Nationally Certified ROMA Trainers and Implementers (top row, from left to right); and NCRI candidates Robin Moses, C-SCDC (top row, far right); Cathy Brownell, OOI; Lacey Outlaw, CAPCA; and Alex Lynch, BRAD (middle row, from left to right); and Helen Snyder, CDCAA (bottom row).
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 Chief Operations Officer Terry Bearden at tbearden@acaaa.org or, by phone, at (501) 372-0807 to receive the tuition discount code.
