CCA's First Ever Virtual Board Meeting
As you can tell from our previous stories, COVID-19 has not stopped Community Care Alliance from losing sight of our vision; Through programs, advocacy and collaboration people are empowered to discover their potential and live as engaged citizens, free of stigma, within a thriving community.
We continue to provide programs and help people to get the resources they need. Case Managers are finding new ways to work with existing clients and continue to advocate for them. We've opened our doors to people who just now are facing challenges they've never had before, and are encouraging those who need help to get it. How is CCA able to pull this off? Through hard work, creativity, and a very important part of our vision: collaboration.
The power of collaboration is needed now more than ever, even though it's become somewhat of a challenge. Pre-pandemic, our board of directors had committed to having a minimum of five regular meetings per year. But, when considering the increased demand for communicating the ever-changing status of agency business, they decided to meet monthly as long as necessary. This month they met with key managers to discuss the strategies for fulfilling needs that are continuously becoming evident in the community while keeping staff and clients safe.
The first ever virtual Board meeting was held on Zoom, which was a learning curve for most. With over 10 people involved, this wasn't an easy task! But the process of getting acquainted to the software led to some much-needed laughs, and the board was able to continue working together to find ways to keep empowering people to live better lives.
CCA is grateful for its Board of Directors for their commitment and efforts in helping us achieve our mission. They are an invaluable asset!
