It is with regret that the Board of Caribbean-Central American Action (CCAA) announces that the organization will close its doors on October 31, 2018. After a very successful four decades, this decision has been difficult for our staff and for the Board.
Caribbean-Central American Action (CCAA) was formed by U.S. and regional business leaders who believed that economic prosperity in the countries of the Caribbean Basin would strengthen their democracy and security. As such, CCAA has always been an organization driven by its central mission: to advance economic growth and contribute to the wellbeing of the people in the countries of the Caribbean and Central America. Through our Miami Conference and other events, our active task forces, and our programs, the organization has consistently promoted sound policies for trade and investment. Our advocacy on behalf of the Caribbean and Central America has been the basis for new legislation, new organizations, and an energized focus on the issues that would advance regional growth and ultimately strengthen political and economic bonds with the United States.
The members and staff of CCAA are proud of the legacy that the organization built over the decades, and we would like to thank everyone who has traveled with us on this extraordinary journey. Whether you joined us as a member, participated in one of our events, supported our advocacy efforts, or came through our doors as an intern or staff, you contributed to building a greater understanding of the U.S.-regional relationship. We believe that the core values that CCAA were founded upon remain true, and so we hope that you will continue to support the organizations, ideas, and events that advance the U.S. partnerships with the Caribbean and Central America. They are as important today as they were at the beginning.
Your support and collaboration have been important to us, and on behalf of the CCAA Board and the staff we would like to thank you for being a part of our remarkable history.
With sincere thanks,
Your Friends at Caribbean-Central American Action
