Champlain Housing Trust (CHT) presented VHFA Controller Tim Gutchell (right) with the Carole Pack Award at its annual meeting a couple weeks ago.

The award recognizes Tim's "leadership and dedicated oversight of the housing trust’s finances through challenging economic times when each dollar was critical."

“Tim provides the Board with a level of confidence that is so important to the organization,” explained CHT President Paul Bohne.

Former Sen. Susan Bartlett was presented with the Tim McKenzie Award for Outstanding Contributions to Perpetually Affordable Housing.

“Susan Bartlett has been one of the most effective leaders in advancing the State’s investments in affordable housing, and doing it the right way — by committing to permanently affordable housing,” said CHT CEO Brenda Torpy. “Susan’s leadership over the past 10 years has been unparalleled.”

The Hilton Wick Volunteer Fundraiser Award was presented to Essex resident Alec Barclay of NBT Bank. He was recognized for his longtime volunteerism on CHT’s endowment fundraising committee, the Community Relations Committee and his encouragement of others, including his family, to participate in the annual Community Campaign.

Nearly 200 CHT members attended the annual meeting, which also included the election of six Board members: Paul Bohne of Shelburne, Catherine Dimitruk of Colchester, Sandra Dooley of South Burlington, Bill Dorsch of Grand Isle, Rosalyn Graham of Shelburne, and Richard Kemp of Burlington.
