How TAAHP is Governed
TAAHP is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership annually with term limits imposed. Our Directors represent such diverse disciplines as owners/developers (for profit and non-profit), lenders/investors, and general membership categories.
TAAHP leadership is dedicated to promoting affordable housing and educating members on key issues facing the housing industry. A slate of candidates are selected by a nominating committee and voted on by the general membership. Officers and Board members are announced at the annual Texas Housing Conference sponsored by TAAHP.
