A New Generation of Leaders

The Emerging Leaders Peer Network (ELPN) is a platform for growth, achievement, and opportunity among a cohort of affordable housing practitioners and advocates through NPH. ELPN fosters members’ long-term personal and professional development, and helps build connections that support the affordable housing industry. Join us as an emerging leader and develop your passion for affordable housing!

ELPN was established in 2014 as an effort to ensure that up-and-coming leaders across the affordable housing field have the tools and resources that they need to propel the industry forward. The group works to develop housers’ expertise and knowledge across all sectors of the affordable housing field as well as to continue to grow the industry through recruitment, professional development, and advocacy.

ELPN Leadership & Subcommittees

To address the diversity of topics and challenges faced by our members and the affordable housing movement, ELPN uses a sub-committee structure led by the Steering Committee.

The Steering Committee is an all-volunteer group that manages ELPN’s day to day operations and program development.


Member benefits include:

  • Receive ELPN newsletters that feature event info, blogs, job listings, and more!
  • Network with peers across all sectors of the industry.
  • Build your professional skills and knowledge through our trainings and workshops.
  • Join a subcommittee and meet new friends while rolling up your sleeves to organize exciting programming.
