The BHP’s five member Board of Commissioners is responsible for the overall policy and management of the organization. The current members are: Chair, Janet Cramer; Vice-Chair, Tom Finnell, Commissioner Christine Connelly, Commissioner William Bedard and Commissioner Pat Smith. All members are appointed by the Brattleboro Select Board and each serves a five-year term. The Brattleboro Housing Partnerships is very fortunate to have a Board which is highly knowledgeable about the many facets of its work. Board members take an active interest in policy development and management issues. After Tropical Storm Irene, Board members were very involved in the decision making around next steps and in volunteering their time to help with the clean up! The Board keeps its focus on the big picture and does not get overly involved in day-to-day matters. This is the mark of an excellent Board that knows its job and is doing it well!
The Board meets once a month in each of BHP’s five public housing developments throughout the year on Monday night at 5:30 p.m. The first item of business is to talk with any residents that are present, if you have a question or concern that you would like to bring to the Board, please attend a meeting! The schedule of meetings is posted in or outside each of the property offices.
