HCAP Training Day 2014
HCAP Changing and Progressing
HCAP Training Day is a time for HCAP employees from every program to gather, engage in conversation, and learn about all the programs and services offered by HCAP. Staff from each program gave a presentation on how their programs have changed and progressed throughout the years. Social media consultant, Roxanne Darling shared HCAP’s social media presence, strategy, and purpose, as well as debuted the new HCAP website. Long-time advocate and community leader, Alex Santiago addressed the HCAP ohana on the importance of civic engagement and making their voices heard in Hawaii. As employees of a community action agency, we are gifted with being in a position to empower the community and encourage everyone to advocate for a better Hawaii. Last but not least, HCAP honored its employees, whom have served between 5 and 40 years at the organization. HCAP would not have been able to progress as it has, if it were not for our passionate and dedicated staff.
