“Sam adds an important additional affordable housing perspective to the issues we tackle,” — Todd David, SFHAC.

The Executive Committee meets nine times during the year. As the governing body of SFHAC, the group helps with fundraising, strategic plan implementation and building new relationships to help spread the SFHAC pro-housing message. Executive Committee members engage in the Project Review, Regulatory and Ballot Analysis committees of SFHAC.

Other Executive Committee responsibilities: guiding the SFHAC engagement in political campaigns and ballot initiatives, advising on SFHAC’s two annual big fundraising events and general advocacy. The Executive Committee also steers how the organization weighs-in on local, regional and state policies.

Now, as an at-large member of the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition Executive Committee, Moss will be active on the Regulatory and Ballot Analysis committees.

“SFHAC supports housing at all levels, so being elected to the Executive Committee is truly an honor,” said Moss. “I believe my background in affordable housing adds significant value to a typically more “market-rate” point-of-view. I want to make sure SFHAC advocates for affordable housing and community development, whenever possible.”
