Message from your Administrators:
Bob and Myrna Gauthier
Thanks to all that attended the August UNAHA meeting at the Heritage Inn in Great Falls, Montana. A special thank-you to the Fort Belknap Housing Authority for hosting us and sponsoring the outstanding Barbecue Monday night. I have been involved with UNAHA since its inception in 1985. This was one of the best meetings ever! The level of dialogue and interest in our activities, NAIHC and Legislation was exciting. Thanks to Sharon Vogel and the other Board Members for attending and challenging the organization to do more.
Chair Sharon Vogel challenged the membership to form a “Strategy Committee” to begin developing an approach to address national policy and funding issues. We are losing ground do to the organization and activity of other housing regions with different agendas than UNAHA. We hope this committee is ready to go by the end of the year. So far Shelly Marshall from Flandreau, Sharon and I are on the committee. It would be nice to have eight to ten members. Email Myrna if you are willing to serve on the work group. Most of our meetings will be conference calls.
