The Massachusetts Select Board Association’s first program meeting of the year will be a free webinar covering best practices for affordable housing trusts on March 17.

The webinar will provide an overview of affordable housing trusts and examine best practices for communities using a trust, including an overview of some of the tools available to municipalities through the Massachusetts Housing Partnership.

The webinar will also review the process for establishing an affordable housing trust and will discuss examples of successful affordable housing trust projects.
Featured speakers will include:
• Shelly Goehring, senior program manager at the Massachusetts Housing Partnership
• Kathryn Roy, chair of the Lexington Affordable Housing Trust Study Committee and vice president of Charlesbank Homes Foundation
• Caitlin Madden, executive director of Metrowest Collaborative Development

The session will be moderated by MSA Chair and Williamstown Select Board Member Andy Hogeland.

The free webinar will run from noon to 1 p.m., and advance registration is required. An email with the registration link was sent to all select board members in February.
