2019 Annual Conference

The MAHC Annual Conference is the nation’s best gathering of cooperative housing leaders. Our conferences are designed for those whose mission is to strengthen cooperative housing and the people they serve. During three days in late April, cooperative housing professionals from across the country will convene at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Seattle to take advantage of educational and networking opportunities
and share experiences, challenges, solutions, and successes.

Participants engage in peer-to-peer educational sessions and learn from national experts on programs and policies to help cooperative housing members. Past conferences have resulted in new and increased collaboration, new approaches, and improved practices across the nation.

It involves the lives of hundreds of people who live there, and many others whose earnings depend on the cooperative.

So where do we start? What do we do?
