Advisors to the Greater Portland Community Land Trust

The GPCLT Board of Directors has created a Board of Advisors whose expertise will be called upon to help Directors make decisions about a variety of issues.

Although they will not vote on matters before the Directors, their knowledge and advise about housing development, finance, and local and state government will be a tremendous asset to our organization.
