CAPI has announced new directions for the organization and Executive Director Pham Thi Hoa will be stepping down. Ekta Prakash, currently CAPI’s program director, will serve as CAPI’s Executive Director, effective January 2012.
CAPI’s 2009-2012 strategic plan has charted the course for CAPI to move from being a primarily social service organization to becoming one whose service model includes social justice work, focusing on building our communities’ human capital to advance economic vitality, health equity, and gender democracy. Social justice is explicitly promoted in our vision, mission, and values statements. Our planning process promotes reflection, revision, and accountability for greater effectiveness. Organizational strategies build the leaderships of staff, partners, and community constituents.
Most of all, we have forged important relationship with you, making significant movements in our community linkages, locally and nationally, investing in strategies that build community impact and organizational effectiveness.
As we approach the end of our 2009-2012 strategic plan, CAPI’s executive director, Pham Thi Hoa, has announced her intention to exit her role. Pre-succession work began earlier this year and Ekta Prakash, currently CAPI’s program director, will serve as CAPI’s Executive Director, effective January 2012. Also, created in 2010, CAPI’s Economic Task Force, composed of staff and board members, has been proactively pursuing strategic partnerships to develop a sustainable business model to scale our impact and relevancy in the refugee and immigrant communities.
On behalf of CAPI’s constituents, staff, board, volunteers, and partners, we thank you for your partnership and our shared-vision that all refugees and immigrants lead successful lives and exercise fully their civic rights and responsibilities.
Colleen Finnegan, Board Chair
Pham Thi Hoa, Executive Director
