What being a member of the GLACUHO organization means to you
My involvement in the association over the past six years has given me rich context for the work I do every day as a housing professional. I have learned so much from our membership and have made so many connections that have added value and meaning to my job and my personal life. We have a lot to be proud of in our 41-year history together, and I am looking forward to seeing what challenges and accomplishments will be possible for us in the future. Serving as President this year is a career-defining opportunity, and I am excited to continue our association's standard of excellence. Please do not hesitate to let me know how I or the rest of the Board of Directors can help you get the best out of your GLACUHO experience!

I am Canadian-born and raised and married to my wonderful (and patient) wife Julie, who shares my passion for education.
