The NAAIA CDC initiative was launched in 2018 and began its work by funding the JL Tillman Scholarships in 2019 and 2020 and distributing funds to assist with Hurricane Dorian relief.
In January of 2020, the board approved funding for an outside consultant to work with immediate past chair Ken Branch and a small working committee to re-establish the CDC with a separate board. The working committee currently has the following members:
- Ken Branch – Chair
- Janet Jordan-Foster – NAAIA Chair
- Aimee Griffin – Counsel
- Alisa Joseph – Consultant
