Program Overview

Who should attend?

  • Policy makers for Public Housing Authorities
  • Policy makers for HUD legacy properties ( Rental Supplemental, Rental Assistance Payment, Moderate Rehabilitation and Moderate Rehabilitation (SRO)
  • Lenders and Investors

Transformative leadership focuses on creating a vision and ensuring that the vision is shared and communicated across the entire company. Transactional leaders, on the other hand, are more concerned about ensuring a continuity in the day to day functioning, ensuring seamless operations by establishing systems and processes in place and focused towards achievement of set targets. They are not about the futuristic vision or strategies for acquiring market leadership, but are more concerned about ensuring that the tasks assigned are completed on priority by meeting the quality benchmarks

RAD can become a transformative and not just a transactional program. It can be about more than than just trading in one form of federal subsidy for another – as has been the case since 1938.  Leaders can use RAD to truly transform the way they do business, to become more innovative and creative, and to reduce overhead and operating costs. This workshop will cover how you can transform your organization, and, moreover, the lives of your residents through RAD.  This workshop will not just focus on the transactional nature of RAD conversions,  but the opportunities that it present for truly transformative changes.
