Chair: Sarah Taber
This person attends the monthly General Assembly meetings of
the San Francisco Coalition. These meetings take place the third
Tuesday of every month. The meetings consist of agenda items put
forward by delegates and of reports from the various committees that
have met in the preceding weeks. Often the committees submit
motions with their reports, and the RHN liaison casts a vote on behalf
of RHN. The liaison reports back to RHN on any aspects of the
meeting/agenda that are of particular interest to residents of Russian
Hill. The liaison also speaks on behalf of Russian Hill residents and
RHN when the occasion warrants.
If you are interested in participating in any of our committees, please e-mail the Chair or leave a message at our message center (415-267-0575) with your name, phone number, best time to contact you, and your interest.
