Former IAM Legislative and MNPL Director Bill Hoylater was recently honored for his service to the Elderly Housing Development and Operations Corporation (EHDOC), a senior advocacy organization that works with unions to build and maintain quality affordable housing for retired Americans.
Hoylater, an EHDOC Board Member since 1996, received a “Lifetime of Service” award. An advocate for EHDOC residents for two decades, Hoylater has spent countless hours visiting EHDOC communities, listening to resident’s concerns and arranging social services.
“In this age of economic insecurity, it takes people like Bill Hoylater to advocate for the needs of retired Americans,” said IAM International President Bob Martinez, who recently became an EHDOC board member himself. “The work of EHDOC helps seniors live independently with dignity and self-determination in communities with their peers.”
EHDOC, founded in 1978, manages 53 affordable senior housing communities comprising 5,000 apartments in 15 states as well as Washington, DC and Puerto Rico. Former IAM International President William W. Winpisinger is the namesake for an EHDOC community in Cleveland, OH. Learn more at www.ehdoc.org.
