Cooperative Business Head is the Keynote Speaker at the NAHC Virtual Summit

The National Association of Housing Cooperatives (NAHC) will convene its first-ever virtual summit on November 11–13, 2020. The online program will feature a keynote speaker and deliver seven online learning sessions and special events, such as social activities, engaging breaks, and games.

Doug O’Brien, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Cooperative of Business Association (NCBA), will be the keynote speaker on November 11. During his address, O’Brien will educate participants about the various types of cooperatives that exist and the significance of NAHC’s federal issues such as the Paycheck Protection Program, disaster relief (H.R. 5337) and reverse mortgages for housing cooperatives.

Later that day, a panel will discuss the various measures communities have taken in response to COVID-19 and share the best practices for your cooperative. The last session will highlight conflict resolution in light of the pandemic. The day will end with a game of NAHC bingo.

Thursday’s summit will present sessions on finance, management and disaster preparedness. The finance session will focus on refinancing during these low-interest rate times. The management session will deal with how to lead your property manager and help them navigate the COVID-19 safety procedures, and the final session will be a discussion on your cooperative’s readiness for disaster. After the sessions, the NAHC talent show will begin.

On the last day of the summit, participants will get an update on legal and governance issues. The legal session will expound upon the rights you have as a cooperative, and the governance session will be a new board member panel discussion. The NAHC trivia session will conclude the day.

The summit will take place via Zoom, a video communications application. Prior to the start of this event, registrants will receive a unique Zoom link to join the program. Register today for the NAHC Virtual Summit.
