Tri-County Community Action Plans Transition

The CEO of Tri-County Community Action announced today that he will be stepping down in February of 2016.

Michael Coughlin has served in his current role since being appointed by the former Special Trustee in 2013. “Tri-County CAP is a wonderful organization, and is such a vital resource for the North Country. In the last two years we’ve made tremendous progress,” Coughlin said. “But after 37 years in this field, I have other goals and interests I’d like to pursue. Having this long to plan our transition gives us time to find the excellent leadership this organization deserves.”

Since experiencing severe financial difficulties in 2012, CAP has had a complete turnover of its Board of Directors, its CEO and CFO. “We’re much stronger than we were during those difficult days,” said Sandy Alonzo, Board Chair. “Michael and his whole team have done remarkable work to put the agency on a sustainable path, and to rebuild our reputation.” The last two years of audited financial statements show that the agency has ended in the black, and its balance sheet has improved each year. “We will miss Michael,” said Alonzo, “but we’re on a solid track now, and we feel confident that we will be able to find good talent to take the next steps for our agency.”
