2016 Annual Meeting of Board Directors

Dane County CASA joins Canopy Center as one of our programs!
Effective October 2, 2015, Dane County CASA merged with Canopy Center. This merger allowed Dane County CASA to continue it's important programming and share administration costs for things like an Executive Director, Finance Manager and Volunteer Coordinator. With a wonderful synthesis of program philosophy and mission, this merger made so much sense it was a wonder we didn't think of it sooner! Six of the Dane County CASA Board Directors made the move to the Canopy Center Board to continue to shape and grow the entire Canopy Center slate of programs. We also welcomed the CASA staff - Kelsey, Meaghan and Kim!
