Who can join NAHT?
There are two types of membership within NAHT: Voting Members and Non-Voting Members.
Voting membership in NAHT is open to resident organizations in current or formerly HUD-assisted and/or insured multi-family housing. This includes Public Housing developments proposed for conversion to private ownership by a Public Housing Agency through Notice to tenants pursuant to HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) or other programs; resident owner groups, or organizing committees, that meet regularly, are democratic, representative of all groups in their development, and independent of non-resident owners or management agents that are committed to permanently affordable housing for low and moderate income people.
Each member organization has one vote at the annual membership meeting. The dues for resident organizations are currently $25 annually for voting membership and are effective for one year from date of receipt. Voting member groups will be able to vote at NAHT’s Special Membership Meeting and in elections for the NAHT Board of Directors. Only designated representatives of dues-paying voting member groups in good standing may vote for or run for the NAHT board.
Non-Voting Membership (associate membership) in NAHT is open to non-profit organizations which work with HUD tenants and share the goals and objectives of NAHT. (Non-profit, non-resident groups which own or manage housing are not eligible to join.) By joining NAHT as an associate member, your organization becomes part of a national movement to preserve affordable housing for low- and moderate-income people. An important part of being an associate member is being a liaison between your local tenant associations and NAHT. Examples of such groups are area-wide tenant organizing groups and housing advocacy organizations. Groups or individuals representing non-resident owners or managers are not eligible.
