CHAM 2021 Conference


Tuesday, July 20 and Wednesday, July 21

A key learning of this last year is that a crisis requires resilience, and this is the moment to build more resilient organizations. With both practical advice and bold ideas, CHAM’s 2021 Conference will explore the path forward for advancing mission and performance during the pandemic and beyond.

Two provocative plenaries will fuel your curiosity. The opening session on Tuesday, housing leaders will take a fresh look at three core values to affordable housing: resilience, sustainability and equity. On Wednesday, we’ll will dive into learning about the latest policy initiatives at the federal, HUD and state levels.

You’ll be able to choose from 12 sessions that share strategies, insights and opportunities for key components of the Asset Manager’s role: affordability, physical asset, resident engagement and practice. But you won’t really have to choose -- all the sessions will be available online for 2 months, so you have plenty of time to watch everything you are interested in.  

We are excited by the features of the virtual format we are using. Some sessions will be prerecorded and some sessions will be broadcast live. But in all cases, you will be able to chat and pose questions of the presenters in real time. You will be able to chat and network with other attendees, connect with sponsors who may have a product or service you need, and learn about CHAM’s educational programs.

Join hundreds of people from all sectors of the affordable housing industry --

  • Asset managers, property managers, developers, directors and executives
  • Owners, both nonprofit and for-profit
  • Lenders, investors, syndicators, government, PHAs, HFAs
  • Professional service companies and intermediaries

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are able to keep the price affordable - 

  • Early Bird Registration (through June 25) - $120 a person
  • Regular Admission (June 26 and later) - $140 a person
