On May 27th 2023, Otter Housing Association held its first Annual General Meeting! You can find our Annual Report from our Operations Director below. As well, a message from Olivia our Community Project Coordinator:
“Here we are! The first ever Otter AGM; exactly two years after I chaired my first
(ever) meeting in this affordable housing initiative. It feels surreal. In 2022, we’ve
built and trained a passionate and capable group of Decision-makers, created our
own governance, business values, and employment opportunity, advocated in our
province’s affordable housing network and now sooo many people know our
name. They know about the love we share for our home and that we are taking
its future into our own hands.
I don’t think I say enough how thankful I am to have you all on this team. There’s
a lot of humbling days in this job where I feel like I’m in over my head, but
whenever we come together as a group I always feel confident and supported, so
thank you for believing in me and this organization. Thank you for coming and
contributing to meetings, sharing your energy and passion, believing in our
mandate and mission, and learning as we go along. I’m extremely proud of us
and Otter Housing Association and look forward to where this journey takes us
I would like to give a special shout-out and thank you to our Operations Director
David. Thank you for jumping on board with this initiative and guiding us every
step of the way. You’ve given us all our first experience in grassroot initiatives. I
know we’ll all hold onto this knowledge and refer back to it throughout our lives.
We appreciate all that you do for Otter Housing Association and feel lucky to
have you as a mentor”.
