Board and Staff

Like all Community Action Agencies, LCCAA is required to have a three-part board. A third of our board members must from each of the following: Public Sector (typically elected officials or their designees), Private Sector (typically business leaders), and the Low-Income Sector (people living in poverty or people providing direct service to them).
