The Cape Area Region has a working Board of Directors that was established in the fall of 2014. There is presently an effort being put forth to grow general membership for this Region. Two other area Regions are in the process of being developed. One is in the Bootheel and is being developed in Caruthersville. This will cover the counties of New Madrid, Dunklin, and Pemiscot. The other Region will be in Butler County and serve the communities of Poplar Bluff and the many communities surrounding it.
Goals for 2016 are the same as those of Empower Missouri, as the Regions develop goals for each Region will be added in accordance with the direction of Board and Membership. Work will be continued to work on growth in numbers and fill in the structure of the two new Regions in Southeast Missouri. All three Regions will continue to
support the Goals of Empower Missouri while adding numbers to the voice of those who speak for those who are not heard.
