The 2019 NAHRO Summer Conference will be held at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, MA. This is the second of NAHRO's three CONNECT events.  At this conference, we will focus on connecting to RESULTS.

The conference will feature educational sessions; a showcase of innovative programs and services from NAHRO's 2019 Agency Awards of Merit-winning agencies; a housing and community development tour hosted by the Boston Housing Authority, and as always, productive peer-to-peer networking opportunities.

For Commissioners - NAHRO Professional Development is offering Summer Conference registrants a special opportunity to attend one of three Commissioners’ Seminars: Commissioners' Fundamentals, Ethics for Commissioners or our Commissioners Guide to Monitoring & Oversight.  Attend a semiar while also attending main conference events.  Go to the Commissioner Seminars page for more information.
