The Park County Tripartite Board was formed in 2001 under the Park County Commissioners to oversee the Park County CSBG grant. In 2007, the Park County Tripartite Board created the Yellowstone Country Assistance Network of Park County, Wyoming, a 501 (c) 3 to govern the Park County CSBG grant and offer competitive grants to organizations and agencies provide programs for low-income families in Park County, Wyoming.
For our communities to succeed, the community as a whole must be involved and be represented on the Board of Directors. These volunteers represent three community sectors:
(1) public elected officials because they formally represent both the public and the local government; Public Officials or their appointed representatives may serve while they remain in office or until the next annual meeting after leaving office, with no longer than a four (4) year term. Generally, any individual who serves as a public official is an employee or the government for whom they serve. Although there is no precise definition for the term “public official” or “public officer,” the courts have generally held that anyone who exercises significant authority according to public laws is a public officer. This includes any official who administers or enforces public laws, whether the individual is elected by the public or appointed to an office.
(2) the poor or representatives of the poor because they know poverty problems; Representatives of low-income individuals and families in the neighborhood served. No requirement exists the representatives be low-income themselves. The representatives should have a strong voice in the organization’s governance and direction; they can convey to those they represent the presence and significance of community action in their lives. Can actively participate in the development planning, implementation, and evaluations of programs funded by this organization.
(3) The community’s balance because the agency cannot succeed without the support and participation of the other service agencies, private employers, churches, unions, law-enforcement, etc.
Board meetings may be held in person or a Director may participate in a meeting by, or meeting may be conducted through any means of communication by which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other during the meeting. A Director participating in the meeting by this means is considered present in person.
