Message from the President of CONN NAHRO

Hello Everyone,

It's an honor to have been elected President of CONN-NAHRO by my colleagues.  The next election will occur in August of 2019.

If you are new to CONN-NAHRO, please browse the pages of the website.  We are a very active state chapter of NAHRO (National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials).  There are numerous ways to get to know our members:  attend the monthly meetings, professional development opportunities, the golf tournament and/or the annual convention at the Mohegan Sun.  There are also may opportunities to sponsor events.  Note that the golf tournament raises the funds needed to provide educational scholarships to people living in public housing or receiving housing assistance.  Contact our Executive Director, Jessica Olander, for more information.

If you like what you see, please think about becoming a member.  Join a committee.  If you have common goals please work with our legislative committee to support good legislation or try to bring forth legislative changes that will assist us in making our buildings/programs sustainable so we can provide decent, safe and sanitary housing.

Perhaps you've been a member for a while but haven't really gotten involved.  We welcome you to attend the monthly general membership meetings, the Small PHA meetings, professional development sessions and/or the convention.  Even small housing authorities should be budgeting for trainings to keep current on issues effecting them.  There are always friendly faces at our events.

If you are an active member please keep up the good work!  You are valuable to the organization.

Annette Sanderson
Executive Director of the Hartford Housing Authority

Please join us for our monthly general membership luncheon meeting typically held the fourth Thursday of each month (please see our Meeting Schedule for the next meeting date and speaker).  We also sponsor a three day Annual Convention each August, with informative and timely sessions related to local, state and federal housing issues. More specific information can be found on the Annual Convention Committee page.

CONN-NAHRO is very active in furthering the training and development of housing professionals. Our Professional Development Committee generally hosts three such opportunities each year. Upcoming events are posted on the Professional Development Committee page.

Our membership is open to all individuals, housing related agencies and interested vendors.  We encourage you to consider becoming a member of CONN NAHRO.  Membership information is found on the Member Services page.
