Board terms are staggered to allow for continuity and transitioning. Each November the Board of Directors internally elects its Officers: President, Vice President, Clerk, and Treasurer. The Officers serve for one-year terms and can be reelected by a majority vote of the Board. The President appoints other committees with the discretion and support of the Board on an as-needed basis.
The Falmouth Housing Trust has an Executive Director who carries out the policies and programs set annually by the Board of Directors. The Executive Director is responsible for developing an annual plan of activities for the Falmouth Housing Trust, cultivating and soliciting funding proposals, maintaining relationships with the FHT membership, local businesses and elected officials, state and federal agencies and the Falmouth community. The Executive Director is responsible for program administration, compliance, maintaining a ready-to-buy list, reporting, and handling sales and leases of affordable units.
The Falmouth Housing Trust does contract for services with local independent companies and organizations as the need arises, to realize its organizational goals and obligations.
