Welcome New MAHC Members
THANK YOU MAHC BOARD MEMBERS!
MAHC Board Members volunteer countless hours to lead and support our organization, and we could not be successful without their guidance and leadership. We extend our sincere thanks to outgoing Board Member, and former President, Trudy McFall for her many years of dedication to MAHC. During her tenure, many policies and procedures were put into place to help guide the organization, the RHW Program was created, and we hired our first full time Executive Director. We also thank our outgoing President, Chickie Grayson, who's two year term ends in June, though she will remain on the Board as the Past President. We welcome new Board Member Tom Ayd, a Partner at Green Street Housing, as well as our new Leadership Team for 2016/2017:
Ivy Dench-Carter, President
Dear MAHC Members and Friends,
Over the past two years, I have had the honor of serving as President of the Maryland Affordable Housing Coalition. I have followed in
the footsteps of people for whom I have great admiration, and have striven to
build on their good work. MAHC has had many accomplishments over the past
two years - we forged a stronger relationship with the new leadership at
the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, celebrated our
15th anniversary, participated in the revisions of a new QAP, worked with the
MD DHCD on a streamlined draw policy and closing costs
guidelines, significantly increased our membership and sponsorships, and
held more educational opportunities through our brown bag series. All of
this work was accomplished through the very active MAHC committees and the able
oversight of our executive director, Miranda Darden. Many thanks to the
committee chairs, members and to Miranda for their service.
MAHC has a strong voice in the affordable housing industry, and we
continue to grow stronger, speaking with a unified voice on the need for
better programs for affordable housing. There will be many opportunities
ahead to bring our knowledge and expertise to our work in Maryland. As
practitioners in the development of affordable housing, we can turn our
collective experiences into good, sound policy. I urge everyone to get
involved and help make a difference in improving the delivery of quality
affordable housing in Maryland.
Congratulations to Ivy Carter on becoming the next President of MAHC.
I look forward to my continued involvement with MAHC and wish the
leadership team much success in guiding the organization over the next few
