Local Community Forums

Cascade Pacific Action Alliance follows a bottoms-up approach for region-wide engagement. Each county hosts a local forum, which identifies local health priorities, adopts shared regional priorities and actions that align with the local action agenda, and implements local action. Key stakeholders from the local community forums communicate the local work and local preferences to the regional level at meetings of both the CPAA Council and the Support Team.

If you have questions about the Local Community Forums, please contact Amber Shirk: shirka@crhn.org or 360-539-7576 ext 124.
