Our Mission is: “Eliminate poverty. Empower Families. Engage Communities”. A very important part of how we do this is by making sure that our Board of Directors best represents the individuals, families, and communities we serve. By federal statue, a community action agency Board of Directors must have:

  • 1/3 of its membership representing the low-income sector.
    Such representatives need not themselves be poor, but they must be selected in a manner that insures that they truly represent the poor.
  • 1/3 of its membership representing the private sector. This membership can include, for example, educational, farm groups, chambers of commerce, religious groups, labor, early childhood development, lending institutions, social organizations, senior citizen groups, industry and cooperatives.
  • 1/3 of its membership composed of elected or appointed public officials or their representatives.
  • Terms of office are three years.
  • Board members are volunteers and do not get a salary. Travel costs and expenses incurred by a director in the performance of their duties.
  • The board meets monthly in different communities in Clay and Wilkin Counties. Meetings are held on weekday evenings every month to consider policy matters and the necessary actions for overseeing the operation of Agency programs.

    The Lakes and Prairies Board of Directors represents individuals, families and communities in Clay & Wilkin Counties, Minnesota.
