VAHC STEERING COMMITTEE & OFFICER ELECTIONS
The Coalition by-laws allow for up to nine people to serve on the Steering Committee.  We are fortunate to have six current members willing to continue serving.  As a result, there are up to three potential vacancies on the Steering Committee.  We are fortunate to have Anna Herman from the Champlain Housing Trust willing to serve.  That leaves another two potential seats open.  Steering Committee members are reaching out to other potential candidates and may have additional nominees by next Wednesday.  The by-laws also permit nominations from the floor and call for direct election of officers by the membership.

Until further interested candidates emerge, the Steering Committee recommends that members elect the following slate:

  • Ted Wimpey, Chair & Director, CVOEO Fair Housing Project
  • Sara Kobylenski, Treasurer & Executive Director, Upper Valley Haven
  • Cindy Reid, Secretary & Director of Development, Cathedral Square Corporation
  • Ray Brewster, At Large Member & Independent Consultant
  • Alison Friedkin, At Large Member & Director of Real Estate Development, Downstreet Housing & Community Development
  • Patricia Tedesco, At Large Member & Home Access Program Coordinator, Vermont Center for Independent Living
  • Anna Herman, At Large Member & Community Relations Specialist, Champlain Housing Trust

DIRECTIONS TO OUR LADY OF THE ANGELS CATHOLIC CHURCH:

  • Take I-89 to Exit 4 and head toward Randolph
    (right off south bound exit ramp, left off north bound ramp)
  • Follow Route 66 for about a half mile to Hebard Hill Road on your right
