For 40 years this Coalition has been been made up of people who speak up, educate, organize, ask questions, mobilize, turn out, stand up, and get things done. We will never stop fighting to be a community where every person has the dignity and stability of a home. But what is the best way to do that? What special role do we play in the community? What is most important now? Our Action Planning process will help us answer these questions. We truly want and need to hear from you, our members. We'll engage in dialogue and exercises to get your input on Coalition priorities for the future, and describe additional ways your can inform this process in the coming months. 11.30 - Noon Board Elections! Review and vote on our great slate of new and renewing candidates to serve on the Board of Directors (representatives of dues-paying organizations are entitled to vote). And: learn about our exciting upcoming campaign to build on our community's investments in human services. We are excited to celebrate our collective work, elect board members, recognize the work of our members and partners, and plan for our Coalition's future collaborative work for housing, safety, and justice.
