The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) Owner Symposium was first held in 2008 to educate property owners who already were participating in, or were interested in, the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program. Since then, the Symposium has steadily grown into the premier event for Chicago property owners, managers and real estate investors, regardless of their affiliation with CHA.
For 10 years, over 1,000 industry professionals gathered in-person for a day-long educational and networking event with the goal of improving their businesses and supporting affordable housing opportunities throughout all of Chicago's 77 communities.
In 2020, CHA embraced the opportunity to move the Owner Symposium online and launched Symposium Week, an all-virtual event. Branded OS20, the week featured 23 live educational sessions and networking opportunities, all of which remained available on-demand through the end of the year. In 2021, the Owner Symposium moved to an all-inclusive virtual event platform, which provides countless opportunities for education and connections between attendees, speakers and sponsors alike.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for OS22, September 19th - 23rd. We look forward to seeing you again in 2023!
