Bolduc Elected Chair of OCHA

CHAPEL HILL NC – Pen & Inc Communications Managing Director Jean Bolduc was elected Chair of the Orange County NC Housing Authority Board of Commissioners at the Authority’s Annual meeting on January 15th.  “Our role is to provide citizen oversight for what is (and has been) a well-run Section 8 program. Right now our community is poised to improve its affordable housing picture by expanding the menu of options,” said Bolduc. “We’re seeing some really innovative thinking about this and the conversation is gaining traction among elected leaders.”

Bolduc has served for the last year as Vice-Chair of the Board and has been a housing commissioner since the Board was established by the Orange County Commissioners in 2009. Before returning to communications consulting specializing in supporting public sector organizations, she served for six years as the Durham Housing Authority’s Director of Corporate Communications, where she was credited with improving the agency’s transparency and communications with the public. Representing DHA, she served on the Durham Public Information Officers Council, on the steering committee for Durham’s award-winning Project Homeless Connect, on the Mayor’s Committee for Persons with Disabilities and she was appointed to the national faculty for the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials.
