The theme for our 37th annual NPH Fall Conference, Building Opportunities, reflects our goal to advance wins at the ballot box, in Sacramento, and in local communities across the Bay Area. Together with our members, coalition partners, and supporters like you, we will grow opportunities to increase resources for affordable housing!

A huge thank you to our Title Sponsor, Union Bank, for their support in making this event possible!



Our keynote plenary is focused on the three Bay Area counties taking initiative with local ballot measures to create homes and solutions this November. Ruth Bernstein of EMC Research will provide background on the landscape of public opinion on affordable housing and Supervisor Wilma Chan of Alameda County, Supervisor Dave Cortese of Santa Clara County and Supervisor Don Horsley of San Mateo County will share what the hows and whys for their respective counties, what they’ve learned so far and what it will take to win.


Be a part of the 37th annual NPH Fall Conference by becoming a sponsor and join affordable housing peers and cross-sector partners in our collective effort to move our important work forward. Pledge by July 31st to showcase your support in our conference brochure, mailed to 2,500 industry, public officials and corporate leaders.
