Shawn Rodine, Technical Assistance (TA) Manager, CASA of Oregon

Shawn began his job with CASA as a Technical Assistance (TA) Manager in the Manufactured Housing and Cooperative Development Center (MHCDC) in September 2019, soon before Covid-19 became a global pandemic. Since then, Shawn has absorbed the job responsibilities, helped cooperatives, and CASA adapt to socially distanced technology, and quickly become a mentor to other new TA managers. Not only has Shawn become technically adept at this job, particularly, in the area of board responsibilities and governance, he can also be counted on to help coach new TA managers through challenging aspects of their jobs. He has become an admired collaborator among the MHCDC team and our organization.
