Housing Advocates Council

Your impact on the pro-housing movement starts here.

Make your opinion count in the pro-housing movement! The new AHLA Housing Advocates Council (AHLA Council) and its sub-committees will provide input on key decisions made by AHLA. Council members help set AHLA’s policy and political agenda – determining what housing issues to focus on and how to achieve affordable housing for all. There will be opportunities to join sub-committees that focus on separate issue areas such as policy, endorsements, and project advocacy. Members will be provided with exclusive training, events, and communications support.

Why join?

  • A seat at the decision-making table – vote on important decisions, make recommendations on policy and political strategies. Leave your imprint on AHLA.

  • Develop skills in housing and advocacy – access to exclusive Council Events and Trainings.

  • A pipeline of leadership – a platform to activate or multiply your leadership potential.

  • Flexible commitment – only two General Meetings annually are required, with deeper engagement opportunities available, if desired.
