August Question: What would “you” personally improve in the NAHRO organization? Why?
My vision statement for NAHRO is summed up in 3 words: People. Purpose. Passion.
- The PEOPLE we serve must always be on the forefront of our minds as we act with the greatest of integrity to not jeopardize the programs that are needed for their stability.
- We must work to insure that our agencies and organization are as rich with diversity, of every kind, as the PEOPLE we serve.
- With the graying of America we are also seeing the graying of NAHRO. We must prepare our future leaders and link them back to the PEOPLE being served by NAHRO.
- As NAHRO embarks on a Renaissance, we have a chance to review our PURPOSE and who we are as an organization. It is an opportunity for us to rebrand our organization. This should involve reviewing our constitution and committee structure to ensure viability, integrity and diversity.
- NAHRO has been steadfast in effective advocacy, and we must, with PURPOSE, grow and embolden our messages and voice nationally at the federal level. NAHRO must develop and strengthen industry partnerships to better meet the needs of all we serve.
- NAHRO has built an amazing educational system and we must continuously improve our professional development curriculum and give our faculty the tools needed to present the best product available. We must explain the PURPOSE of ethical education to those we serve.
- Identify ways that will strengthen the relationship between NAHRO and those agencies converting via RAD; while continuing to advocate for the remaining agencies that find the process ineffective and need new and different ideas to sustain and retain their PURPOSE and their portfolio.
- We must have an unwavering commitment. A PASSIONATE commitment can change the conversations around poverty, homelessness, and income inequality.
- NAHRO must take a PASSIONATE lead role as the emotional, honest, progressive and relentless voice for affordable housing and the impacts on citizens and poverty.
- NAHRO must serve you and your needs and I want to make absolutely certain that is a PASSIONATE focus of my tenure as your leader.
