The 2016 NAHRO Summer Conference is a can't-miss event for housing and community development practitioners. The conference will feature educational sessions focused on current and emerging industry issues; a showcase of innovative programs and services from award-winning agencies; housing and community development tours of the local Portland area; and productive industry networking events. Additionally, in an effort to make training for commissioners more accessible, NAHRO Professional Development is offering Summer Conference registrants a special opportunity to attend our Commissioners’ Fundamentals seminar, while also attending the conference.
