The VCEH annual joint meeting with the Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition (VAHC) and our regular monthly meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 9 from 9:30 – 2:00 at Our Lady of the Angels Church in Randolph (please note the change from our regularly scheduled day, time, and venue). As always, this year’s agenda will be packed with remarks from high level state policymakers, information and lively discussions.
We have invited representatives from the Shumlin Administration, legislative leadership, and the congressional offices to provide their perspectives on issues affecting affordable housing and homelessness over the coming year. AHS Secretary Hal Cohen and House Appropriations Committee Chair Mitzi Johnson are confirmed, as are representatives from each of our three Congressional Offices. DHCD Deputy Commissioner Jen Hollar will provide us with an overview of recently developed resources for tenants and landlords. The joint meeting will conclude with a networking lunch, followed by the VAHC Annual Meeting and the VCEH monthly meeting. Here is the overall agenda for the day:
9:30-12:00 VAHC & VCEH Joint Meeting
12:00-1:00 Networking Lunch ($5 suggested donation)
1:00-2:00 VAHC Annual Meeting & VCEH Monthly Meeting
We’ll send out the full, detailed agenda, as well as background materials next week.
