Board and Committees

Housing Cambridge (Cambridge Non-Profit Housing Corporation) was incorporated in 1986. Of the seven original directors, four were City Councillors. Cambridge City Council now appoints two of its members to the Housing Cambridge Board of Directors. The remaining Directors are volunteers from the community. Some of these community volunteers are also Housing Cambridge tenants. All of our tenants are members of the Corporation and can vote at the organization’s annual general meeting.

The Housing Cambridge Board of Directors is responsible for the sound governance of the organization. Operating budgets are closely monitored by the Board, which ensures proper financial accountability and fiscal responsibility. Operating and capital replacement funds are limited and are used on a priority basis to address maintenance and operational issues.
