Each council consists of representatives from MBA member companies.
“In order to identify, develop, and execute successful affordable housing partnerships, we need to utilize the expertise and talents of a diverse array of industry professionals,” said Steve O’Connor, MBA’s Senior Vice President of Affordable Housing Initiatives. “I am grateful that these executives are willing to give some of their time to make sure MBA’s efforts reflect the best thinking and have the highest chances of success.”
