From the Chicago Crusader:
More than 1,000 property owners, managers, brokers, investors and other real estate professionals took part in a week of learning, networking and sharing best practices at the Chicago Housing Authority’s first-ever virtual Owner Symposium last week, dubbed “Symposium Week ‘20.”
The Owner Symposium, which celebrated its 11th year providing real estate professionals with education and resources to improve their businesses and support affordable housing opportunities throughout Chicago, has historically been an in-person, all-day event.
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot kicked things off with a video message, welcoming attendees to the event and thanking housing providers for the life-saving services they provide to thousands of Chicago families.
In the opening session, CHA Chief Executive Officer Tracey Scott also thanked property owners across Chicago.
“Thank you for continuing to offer quality housing while balancing financial challenges from COVID-19 and other issues facing our communities,” CEO Scott said. “Your partnership is critical to CHA.”
