OUR COMMITTEES

The FINANCE COMMITTEE provides financial analysis, advice, and oversight of the organizational budget.  Typical tasks include accounting, budgeting and financial planning, preparation of annual tax returns, and the creation and monitoring of internal controls and accountability policies. 

The MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE’S purpose is to recruit new members who have an active role in the affordable housing industry, develop networking, volunteerism, and community engagement opportunities for members, and promote the value of membership through professional and personal development activities.  The Membership Committee takes great pleasure in helping to empower women working in all aspects of affordable housing in the State of Ohio. 

The SPONSORSHIP COMMITTEE’S responsibility is to coordinate the receipt of sponsors and their donations. Committee members communicate with potential and existing sponsors to answer any questions and keep track of responsibilities to those sponsors. Committee members work with the Communications Committee to get information from sponsors in order to highlight them in newsletters and on social media. Committee members are also responsible for keeping track of the amount of funds coming in from sponsors and track the events and social media posts for each Sponsor.

The COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE seeks to engage, support and serve mission-oriented causes in an effort to bring together the collective passions and resources of its members to better provide outreach to the communities in which we live and work.  We aim to provide welcoming opportunities for volunteer and community service that embrace diverse ideas, the knowledge and cultures of our members and the communities we serve. 

The COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE is responsible for maintaining the group’s social media accounts as well as preparation and distribution of the OWAHN newsletter. The Communications Committee works with the Events Committee and Sponsorship Committee to ensure that our members are kept up to date with upcoming events and that our sponsors are properly represented.

The EVENTS COMMITTEE is engaged in planning events that not only supports our mission but fosters collaboration.  Always open for new ideas, some of our past events include happy hours, Ohio Housing Conference meetings, and TED talk style presentations. Our regional representatives assist in coordinating regionally specific events for our members.
