While our meeting will be taking place virtually, we encourage attendees to connect with their elected representatives following the meeting to express the continued need for legislation and funding to support of public and assisted housing. While many offices are not accepting in-person meetings, many are open to holding virtual meetings with constituents.

The conference programming will provide attendees with the latest industry updates. PHADA members are also encouraged to attend the PHADA Committee Meetings prior to the conference for additional guidance and information to share during visits with representatives.

PHADA/Rutgers University Executive Director Education Program (EDEP)

Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the September EDEP courses, Executive Housing Management and Public Relations/Communications, will be held virtually. During this emergency distance learning transition, the September EDEP courses will only be offered to current EDEP students on track for graduation and will not be open to new students. This decision was made in order to allow us to focus on ensuring the highest quality learning experience. Courses will consist of video conferences, independent assignments and online exams.

Course Dates:
- Executive Housing Management: September 21-28, 2020
- Public Relations/Communications: September 29 - October 6
