Our September meeting is going to be another zoom conference call. We will be discussing the policy landscape, including active and ongoing concerns with rent control, rent cancellation, right of first refusal (TOPA), right to counsel, and eviction sealing. We will formally review the significance of each proposal, with reference to selected portions of current bill text. There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how best to help advocate against these proposals and what MassLandlords' alternatives are.
This presentation will be given by MassLandlords Executive Director, Douglas Quattrochi. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 1,900 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
