Board of Directors

Board of Directors

We are proud to have a tripartite board consisting of equal parts of local private sector, public sector, and low-income community representatives. This structure brings together community leaders from each of these groups to collaborate on developing responses to local needs and allowing for maximum feasible participation in both the creation and administration of our programs.

Our Board meetings are typically held at 5:30pm on the 4th Monday of alternating months (February, April, June, August, October, and December).

Interested parties may contact Jennifer Wintermyer for more information.

Join Our Board!

At Tri County Community Action, we fight poverty. We use advocacy, resource coordination and connection, along with direct, supportive services to achieve our goals. Our work as a private, nonprofit corporation is overseen by a volunteer governing Board of Directors.

With the multitude of programs, outreach, and clients we serve throughout all 3 counties, 40+ staff, and multiple locations, we know there is always more we could be doing to impact change – but we can’t do it alone.

To that end, we recruit new board members who can offer the key skills needed to manage and grow the organization.
Some areas of expertise we are recruiting for include:

  • Finance Planning
  • Strategic Planning
  • Management/Administration
  • Organizational Capacity
  • Human Resource
  • Public Relations/Communication
  • Fundraising
  • Teaching/Education/Curriculum Development
  • Economic Development
  • Legal 
  • Grant writing
  • Building corporate sponsorship

Board members must:

  • Live or work in Cumberland, Dauphin, or Perry County.
  • Be able to attend a monthly committee / Board meeting.
  • Be informed about the concerns and opinions of low-income people in your area.
  • Understand, support, and assist the Agency's efforts toward fundraising.
