--Remove restrictions to cabotage, and seek to negotiate a North American Common Aviation Area (NACAA
) with the United States and Mexico to allow carriers from all three countries to compete freely throughout North America.
NACAA, established in 1972, represents the interests of approximately 1,000 independent community action agencies with a staff of 12 and a budget of about $2 million.
NACAA and many member agencies used a pinwheel with an upright arrow in the center as their official logo.
Meeting with Knapp after the seminar, we began the process of planning a national branding campaign, asking questions such as, "Can we really brand community action agencies?" and "Do we brand our association (NACAA) or do we brand individual agencies?" Realizing we were in for a long process, we identified a core team to work on the brand assessment evaluation process.
Nancy Sabella, executive director of NACAA
, says consumers need to know remodelers will stand by their work.
's Grant said the rules "have to be comprehensive, so they cover every [variety] of scheme and deceptive practices."
The survey was developed in collaboration with the National Congress for Community Economic Development (NCCED), Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the National Association of Community Action Agencies (NACAA
) and the National Alliance to End Homelessness.
Because of the degenerating effects poverty has on cities, communities and local economies, the National Association of Community Action Agencies (NACAA) kicked off a first-ever series of dialogues on poverty in Washington, D.C.
With the goal of involving virtually every sector in the solution process, the local dialogues are aiming to give the poor a voice in policy deliberations now affecting them, and to develop and support community leadership among low-income families and individuals, according to John Buckstead, executive director of NACAA. Dialogues will also involve public policy advocates, public officials and community leaders.
On September 4, 1996, NACAA will release a detailed report about the results of the local dialogues including the three major areas determined by local citizens as critical to reducing poverty.
