NHC Announces Leadership Change
WASHINGTON- The National Housing Conference today announced that Maureen Friar has resigned as president and CEO. Friar expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to lead the Conference. She joined NHC in February of 2010.
"Maureen advanced the Conference's goals during a time of considerable change and challenge," said NHC Board Chairman Daniel Nissenbaum. "We appreciate her hard work and accomplishments, and wish her well in future endeavors."
NHC has a strong senior management team in place. Together with the Board, they are intently focused on a quick and smooth transition to new leadership. A national search for a new president and CEO has already begun, said Nissenbaum, and interim leadership plans are forthcoming.
NHC's continued broad support and success is evidenced by their upcoming learning conference, "Solutions for Sustainable Communities," a joint effort with the Center for Housing Policy. More than 400 people are registered to participate in the conference, where U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan will speak.
"What better time to convene the key players in the housing industry, as NHC does so well?" said Shekar Narasimhan, NHC secretary. "The Conference and its research affiliate, the Center for Housing Policy, will continue to guide us in addressing the challenges facing the housing industry."
