September 2020 Edition
Strong leaders are the cornerstone of employee engagement, motivation, and organizational performance. Building strong leaders takes a significant investment of time, energy, and commitment, but the rewards are huge. Central Kentucky Community Action Council (CKCAC) understands this and continues to work with our team to achieve strong leadership with the Community Action skills of desire, passion, and ability.
Congratulations to Jessica Miles, CISO at CKCAC, as she has earned the Certified Community Action Professional (CCAP) credential. She joins a growing group of professionals nationwide who have demonstrated they are dedicated to higher standards of practice in the Community Action industry.
The CCAP designation acknowledges committed professionals who have demonstrated their experience and proficiency in leadership and reliability. It is built on nationally applicable standards of practice, knowledge, and ethics to differentiate professionals who have taken the steps necessary to become certified. The certification is also a nationally recognized standard for professionalism in Community Action and distinguishes individuals as qualified, capable leaders while at the same time, lending increased credibility to the noble and deserving efforts of the entire Community Action movement. The CCAP program is a comprehensive program of experience as an executive; education; involvement in national, regional, state and local Community Action activities; and participation in association management activities.
Jessica has been with the agency for almost 17 years, working in both Finance and IT. She completed the three-year CCAP Program in the first year. Last year CKCAC saw Ellen Leake, CSBG Director, achieve the same designation and we will continue to look within our agency to properly train those with the skills within our agency.
