CHICAGO (June 24, 2019) – Registration is now open for the  Chicago Housing Authority’s annual Owner Symposium on Saturday, September 28, 2019.

Hosted by CHA’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program, the event is from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, 2233 S. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Chicago. Over 1,000 real estate professionals representing approximately 10,000 rental units throughout Chicago’s 77 community areas, as well as dozens of vendors and CHA partners, are expected to attend.

Recognized experts from the housing industry will be on hand to lead the packed agenda of seminars, panel discussions and interactive workshops. Attendees can expect some old favorite topics, including inspections, fair housing and rent determination, as well as new offerings in property and business management.

Now in its 10th year, the Owner Symposium continues to be the premier event for Chicago property owners, managers and real estate investors. And, each year, CHA expands the day’s program to include something different that enhances the experience, making it even better than the year before.

“Helping create healthy, vibrant communities and an improved quality of life for all of our families is paramount,” said Eugene E. Jones, Jr., CHA’s Chief Executive Officer. “By hosting the Owner Symposium each year and continuing to bring together and educate real estate professionals on trends in the rental housing market and other vital issues, we’re able to not only help the growth of many small businesses but also provide better housing choices that support the long-term success of our participant families.”

The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program helps low-income households choose and pay for quality housing in the private market. With funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the HCV Program pays a portion of a family’s rent each month to give them access to the full range of housing available in Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods. Participants can rent a single-family home, an apartment or a condominium. The HCV Program helps families realize their potential and cultivate their personal, economic and social skills to support the transition from subsidized to non-subsidized housing.
