Members of the board of the Southeast Arkansas Community Action Agency met Tuesday, March 15. Some of the members were in attendance in person while several took part virtually by phone or zoom. The board covered the monthly financials, and heard reports on all programs and from each committee. The members then approved the appointment of Leslie Jackson to the board representing Desha County.
In a change to the method of hiring new employees, the board voted that hires may be made by the Executive Director in accordance with the agency personnel policy and procedures. Interviews are to be conducted by the executive director and the immediate supervisor unless the hire is a program head. Once the hire is made, the board is to be notified.
Efforts are underway to continue to improve the agency’s operations and finances. The Executive Director is Michael Jones.
