Public Housing Asset Management for Executives - Completely Updated!

PURPOSE: As public housing continues its transformation – and struggles to remain financially viable – public housing executives and directors must plan and lead strategically. Understanding how to oversee the management of the projects and how to assess the whole portfolio enables the director to make those strategic long-range decisions. This training can help you reevaluate your public housing assets, leverage resources, and explore your business opportunities. Learn about entrepreneurial strategies such as mixed finance development, RAD, and Choice Neighborhoods, as well as ways to leverage resources. We’ve added a new chapter on procurement and Section 3. The material for financial project-based accounting and budgeting, and private sector best practices has been completely updated. Strategically position your PHA for financial viability. This training is an intensive four days with a certification examination on the fifth day.
