CASA Membership Roster

CASA was led by three Co-Chairs (Fred Blackwell, CEO of the San Francisco Foundation; Leslye Corsiglia, executive director of SV@Home; and Michael Covarrubias, chairman and CEO of TMG Partners) and Steve Heminger, former executive director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. It was structured around a Steering Committee and Technical Committee composed of leaders from the region’s private, philanthropic, governmental and nonprofit sectors, including social equity and environmental advocates, the business and technology communities, labor groups, market rate and affordable housing developers, and representatives from across the region. A complete roster is provided below. 

Key advisors to CASA included Estolano LeSar Perez Advisors as well as the University of California, Berkeley. The effort was supported by staff at MTC, who served as CASA’s hosts and conveners.
