A public meeting to elect 2 low-income representatives to the Westbay CAP Board of Directors from Warwick has been scheduled for September 23 at 10 a.m., at the Westbay Community Action, Administrative Offices, 224 Buttonwoods Avenue, Warwick.
All are welcome to the meeting to learn about Westbay, and vote for a Warwick representative or to be nominated for election to the board.
Westbay needs candidates with a strong desire to serve the community and a belief in our mission to “empower and mobilize people through our programs, partnerships and advocacy to gain greater self-sufficiency,” Westbay executive director Paul Salera said in a release.
Nominees should be familiar with the needs of the people they will represent; be 18 years of age and over; live or work in the Warwick community and serve a three year term. Nominees do not have to be low income, they can work for the low income population in Warwick.
The Westbay Community Action Board meets at 3 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month. It sets agency policies including human resource, organization, fiscal and program. The Board establishes the overall program goals and priorities, approves funding requests and insures compliance with all contract provisions and laws.
Nomination papers can be obtained by calling 732-4666 or can be completed at the time of the meeting. Anyone interested can self-nominate or be nominated by another person. Salera urged those interested on becoming a representative to contact him at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 401-732-4666.
