Park Co. Tripartite Board

The Yellowstone Country Assistance Network of Park County, Wyoming is a 501 ( c ) 3 formed to combat poverty, promote economic stability and reduce dependence on government programs, as well as serving as the Eligible Entity for the Community Services Block Grant for Park County since 2007.  In October of 2018, the Organization also became the Eligible Entity for Big Horn, Hot Springs, and Washakie Counties in Wyoming.

About The Board

For CSBG and related programs to succeed, the entire community must be involved. The entire community also must be represented on the Board of Directors by three sectors: (1) public elected officials because they formally represent both the public and the local government; (2) the poor because they know the problems of poverty; and (3) the balance of the community because the agency cannot succeed without support and participation of the other service agencies, private employers, churches, unions, law-enforcement, etc.

The organization’s governing board is structured in compliance with the CSBG Act:

  1. At least one-third democratically-selected representatives of the low-income community;
  2. One-third local elected officials (or their representatives); and
  3. The remaining membership from major groups and interests in the community.

The organization’s governing board meets in accordance with the frequency and quorum requirements and fills board vacancies as set out in its bylaws. 

  1. There shall be at a minimum, including the annual meeting, of four (4) regular meetings each year. (Bylaws)

  2. A Quorum for Directors shall not be less than two-thirds 2/3 of Directors entitled to a vote. (Bylaws)

  3. All vacancies on the Board of Directors of the Corporation, whether caused by resignation, failure to elect, death, removal, or otherwise, such vacancy may be filled by a quorum of remaining Board of Directors at any regular or special meeting. (Bylaws)
