January 2020 marks Frank’s 30 years service with CHA. Commenting on his long service he said: “Over the years I have been very fortunate to have worked with some excellent staff and board members who together have worked hard in delivering the Associations 35 years ongoing success by being “More Than Just A Landlord” and making our communities better places. The first thirty years have just flown by, I am now looking forward to the next 30!”
