Tribute to Linda G. Davenport, Former CPDC Board Chair

It is with heavy hearts that CPDC bids farewell to our beloved Board Chair, Linda G. Davenport. Linda passed away on April 17, 2017. She joined our Board of Directors in 2014 and was appointed Chair in early 2015. Linda’s commitment to CPDC and to the broader housing and community development field was immeasurable. Through her strong leadership, the organization has advanced one of our most aggressive strategic plans to date and has served as a community developer in key markets throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
We celebrate Linda’s accomplishments to housing and community development and will continue to honor her legacy through our steadfast commitment to affordability and equitable communities. Linda will be greatly missed.
