The Mass Union Policy Board will be hosting its annual election. The Policy Board is looking for affiliate members to serve on the Mass Union Policy Board. Executive Board Elections will be conducted on Sunday morning. Policy Board eligibility requires that a public housing tenant be a member of an affiliate providing no such member is in a decision-making position (senior management) at a local housing authority.
State and Federal policy makers and Representatives will be in attendance along with Citizen Housing and Planning Association, Massachusetts NAHRO, and the National Alliance of Resident Services in Affordable and Assisted Housing.
Mass Union Policy Board is looking for candidates to receive the J. Lincoln Durand / Thelma Rodgers Award. These awards are given to citizens who were formerly public housing tenants and are making a difference in their community. If you know of a person you wish to recommend for this award please forward their name and resume to our Office by March 23, 2019.
Now is the time to come together and discover how you can voice your concerns and protect your homes. We need every affiliate to participate in advocating for increasing the funding the state and federal public housing programs. Registration for 2019 Spring convention
