Improving Beaver County Through

Collaboration. Cooperation. Networking. Information.


CAN consists of three different types of committees:  Board Committees, Implementation Committees, and Community Committees.  CAN committees are responsible for the planning, implementation and evaluation of identified projects.
Board Committees
Board committees consider, advise and/or take action on matters related to the overall operations of the organization. There are two standing board committees: Executive Committee, and the Nomination Committee.
Implementation Committees
Implementation committees are formed by the CAN Board of Directors to execute activities indentifed by the Board. There are currently two implementation committees, the Countywide Training Committee and the Leadership Forum Planning Committee.

  1. Human Service Training Committee
  2. The Human Service Training Committee is an implementation committee that plans the content and format of the training seminars offered by CAN. Its goal is to promote cross-agency training in Beaver County in two broad areas: (a) to increase knowledge of what human service agencies are doing, and (b) to provide training on common needs and special topics.
  3. Leadership Forum Committee
  4. Leadership Forum Committee plans and implements forums for the directors of various organizations in Beaver County that are serving individuals and families. These forums provide directors with the opportunity to discuss common issues, and to share ideas and brainstorm solutions to better serve clients.

Community Committees
Community committees are created by the CAN Board of Directors as needed to: (a) study and assess issues; (b) identify and recommend specific options to address issues to the Board; (c) advocate for, and create change in, the human service delivery system; and (d) coordinate and share resources.
