Is the following right (CPE is the organization)?
As CPE grows quickly, it has been necessary to evaluate its effect in the community, and how to improve it for program growth.
- Because CPA has grown quickly, it has become necessary....
- Since CPE grew quickly, it's necessary....
In a series, pay attention to parallel construction. Sometimes diagramming helps:
... it is necessary to:
(a) evaluate its effect....
(b) decide how to improve.
Because the first item of the series (a) is a verb, the second item (b) also needs a verb, and it should be the same tense.
And because it's a series of just two items, there is no comma before the and.

I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
