Much of San Diego Housing Federation’s work is accomplished through committees and work groups which are open to all members. These groups of volunteers and their staff liaisons provide analysis, ideas, and recommendations that are forwarded to the Board of Directors. Frequently, they are tasked with implementing recommendations as well. All Members and staff of member organizations are encouraged to participate in San Diego Housing Federation Committees.

The Committee meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month from 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. The Board relies on this Committee to vet and recommend policy positions which are forwarded to the Board of Directors for final approval.

On December 21, 2016, the Board of Directors of the San Diego Housing Federation adopted a charter for the SDHF Policy Committee. The purpose of the charter is to establish a formal structure for the committee and a consistent voting membership. Following adoption of the committee charter, SDHF is seeking applicants to fill the 11 open positions on the committee for voting membership. The application is available here and must be submitted by no later than noon on Thursday, January 12th to SDHF’s policy director, Laura Nunn, in order to be considered for 2017 membership. SDHF members who wish to continue to participate in the Policy Committee may continue to do so as non-voting participants. Please contact Laura Nunn with any questions.
