The W&B program officially began using the new logo in November 2022 on advertising and outreach materials, with the first step being the launch on its social media profiles and website.
“I’m thrilled to see that our program logo has received a new, updated look,” said Lisa Pfeifer, Workforce and Business Development Program Manager. “Our old logo still has a special place in our hearts; however, this new logo shares the same sentiment as CAC’s that we are proud to incorporate into our new artwork. And even though our logo has had a makeover, our mission is still the same: we are here to provide the necessary resources and support to job seekers and businesses in our region.
The new illustration uses the image of the large arrow from the previous logo, with the semicircular arrow from the new logo representing the change that can occur for local job seekers, clients and businesses who need the advice and support available through the program. The large arrowhead indicates the great success that can be achieved for clients when working with program staff members.
The new logo makes a clearer connection between the CAC and previous W&B logos, visually merging resources for better community awareness.
“I’m very excited to see how the community is responding to the Workforce and Business Development Program’s new logo,” said Keith Pitts, executive director of the Pike County Community Action Committee. “This new design captures the essence of the agency’s spirit while preserving the program’s individuality within the CAC family. We want community members who need the services of the program to see this image and know that they will receive the support and resources necessary to succeed.
