About the Symposium

Past and Future History of Housing

Join NAHRO in Chicago for its 2024 Summer Symposium, the Past and Future History of Housing. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the voucher program alongside the soft opening of the National Public Housing Museum while fostering collaboration and collective impact.

NAHRO’s Summer Symposium is a platform for learning, development, and growth. Sessions will focus on where the housing industry has been, where we are, and where we’re going, and will include a range of speakers and perspectives that will not only have you thinking about affordable housing and community development in a different light, but also taking new, creative ideas back to your community to provide innovative housing solutions to those you serve. We will also offer professional development sessions designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate the complex terrain of affordable housing and community development effectively. A thought-provoking discussion led by the authors of “The Injustice of Place” will delve into deeply disadvantaged locations in America and explore strategies for creating more equitable and inclusive communities.

Whether you’re a policymaker, practitioner, advocate, researcher, or community member, the Summer Symposium has something valuable for everyone committed to advancing affordable housing and community development. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a transformative dialogue and contribute to shaping the future of housing in America.
