Minnesota NAHRO 2022 Fall Conference at Madden’s


Scroll down for session materials.

We are excited to celebrate fall at our annual conference which brings together hundreds of directors, staff and commissioners from housing and redevelopment authorities and community development agencies throughout Minnesota.  

Join us October 12-14 at Madden’s Conference Center for our Annual Conference. We have many engaging and timely sessions planned for this year’s event, including:

  • Recruitment & Retention in Today’s Employment Market
  • A Practitioner’s Guide to Fair Housing & Reasonable Accommodations 101 & 201
  • What’s Happening at USDA Rural Development
  • Ask the Attorney with Mary Dobbins
  • A Specialized Track for Rehab Staff
  • Plus many sessions on key HUD topics including PIC Lab, VMS, Section 3, REAC and many more!

We are also offering a national training from the experts at Nan McKay on Rent Calculation.  Our national training is for both public housing and HCV staff who are new to these programs or need a refresher.  We are able to offer this course at a great price and an even deeper discount for Minnesota NAHRO members.  Please use the link below for more details and a sample agenda.

LODGING & MEALS: Registration full conference package includes 3 days of sessions, networking events and 4 meals (Wednesday lunch & dinner, Thursday lunch plus Friday brunch).  Lodging and breakfast not included but available onsite.  Thursday one day registration includes lunch only and Wednesday/Friday one day registration does not include meals.

We are also excited to welcome back vendors to our Annual Conference. In addition to the Vendor Reception, you’ll also get the opportunity to interact with our vendors at two smaller events during the conference! See our Sponsorship & Vendors page for more information.
