Capital Fund Training

President’s Welcome

On behalf of the NorCal Nevada NAHRO Chapter Board, we are excited about the 2018 Annual Conference in beautiful Napa, the heart of wine country. We have an action packed conference agenda designed with you in mind. There are sessions designed not only to help you in your day-to-day work, but also to help position you in your advancing your career, while looking to the future of the affordable housing industry.

As housing professionals, you know that we face the daily challenge of balancing rising demand for affordable housing with long term chronic funding reductions from Congress. Individual PHA’s struggle year after year to balance their budget and in having to make tough choices which often require us to “do more with less”. Despite this, housing authorities continue to advance the mission with energy and ingenuity, preserving their current housing inventory and expanding affordable housing opportunities through partnerships and collaboration.

We are the advocates for the working poor, for our seniors and disabled; we provide stability to a family and hold out a “hand up” to our residents through self-sufficiency, resident, and youth programs. It is vital that our communities and partners understand our mission. Every time I speak about the work of the housing authority to our partners and community members, I often get the response, “I had no idea you did all that, I thought you just did vouchers.” We are so much more than housing; every day we are on the front lines as community leaders, educators, case workers, resident service workers and emergency responders. We are so much more than the brick and mortar we build and maintain, or than the subsidies we provide.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Conference –"Strategies During Times of Change"   January 28, 29 and 30, 2018. Your work makes a difference in the lives of everyone in your community and sends ripples into the future for the betterment of all.

Best Regards,

Beth Campbell
President
