Quarterly Coalition meetings offer updates on progress with the Policy Agenda and allied efforts and usually feature a guest speaker on a topic related to the Coalition’s policy priorities. Regular email communications are sent to all Coalition members, often with action items for consideration. One meeting every other year is designated the “biennial meeting” for elections and other Coalition business.
The main methods for advancing the agenda of the Coalition are through the workgroups and individual advocacy. Workgroup membership is open to all Coalition members; get involved by contacting their chairpersons or assigned staff. Workgroups function through conference calls, with DC-area members and staff attending in-person meetings in Washington DC as needed.
Joining the Coalition is free. The Coalition seeks member organizations that represent the diversity of the safe and healthy housing community, will contribute to and support the National Safe and Healthy Housing Coalition Policy Agenda, and will actively help to achieve the purpose and goals of the Coalition. More than one person from an organization can receive email, but there should be a designated representative and alternate from each organizational member. The Coalition also welcomes individual members who are not affiliated with a member organization.
