Guest speaker: Kevin Zwick, Chief Executive Officer. Housing Trust Silicon Valley
What's the status of affordable housing in Santa Clara County and how does the housing situation impact our community? We're honored to have Kevin Zwick, named by a national housing publication and the Silicon Valley Business Journal as a top nonprofit leader, to inform us on this topic, with our Mayor, Jim Griffith, also offering his knowledge and perspective as it impacts Sunnyvale.
Kevin served as Executive Director of Housing Trust Silicon Valley since October 2008, and in May of 2013 became Chief Executive Officer. In this role, Kevin leads the overall direction, strategy, and impact of the Housing Trust and works to increase awareness of affordable housing issues at all levels in our region. Kevin has worked in the field of affordable housing and community development since 1999. Prior to joining HTSV, Kevin was Director of Housing Development and Deputy Executive Director of Affordable Housing Associates, a nonprofit affordable housing developer in Berkeley, CA. While there, Kevin oversaw the development of fifteen affordable housing communities throughout Alameda and Sonoma Counties totaling over 600 new units of housing for seniors, working families, people with special needs, artists, and emancipated foster youth.
We will also hold the yearly elections for the Executive Board at this meeting.
