Partners for Affordable Housing Board of Directors

We are currently accepting applications for new Board Members and we’d love to have you join us!  Our Board meets for an hour every month, and members can choose to join a committee for additional involvement. If you are interested in supporting our mission, but can’t commit to monthly meetings, we have opportunities to join committees as well.

We welcome any skills or interest – the more the merrier!  We are also looking to add people with specific experience such as construction or property management, social services, and finance or accounting.

If you are interested, please contact Jen Theneman at 507-387-2115, ext. 2 or jtheneman.pah@enventis.net.

Why I joined PAH’s board: I joined the board as a representative of the School Sisters of Notre Dame.
