National Advisory Council

The National Housing Conference’s (NHC) National Advisory Council (NAC) is where NHC’s thought leaders examine the issues that define current housing policy and explore how we navigate the future. Launched in June 2018, the NAC is chartered to actively support and promote NHC and its mission. NAC members represent the full spectrum of NHC’s membership including developers, lenders, national associations, advocacy organizations and public entities. NAC will provide high-level guidance to NHC, offering insight into pressing issues in the field and addressing emerging policy and research questions.
