CHAM 2022 Asset Management Conference

Wednesday, June 15, 2022
9:00 a.m.– 4:00 p.m.
Fee: $325 Early-Bird, $385 Standard


There are many steps in the affordable housing real estate development process, and those steps are often retraced and head off in different directions as projects run into political, design, financing, construction and operational obstacles. An asset manager’s awareness of the steps in the development process and how various players perceive and work to mitigate risks associated with real estate development can help them understand how to improve each project’s long-term feasibility and success. The full-day training will include case-study work to let asset managers apply the skills they’ve learned to real world problems.

Great news for people who are working on the Certified Housing Asset Manager® designation or considering getting started—this training will satisfy the housing development course requirement.

CHAM is excited to partner with the National Development Council (NDC) to provide this training. And we are even more thrilled that the instructor is NDC's Director of Asset Management, Carolyn Zielinski. In this role, she oversees a team of five asset managers, with a portfolio of projects representing over 9,300 units of affordable housing. She has also worked as the Vice President of Asset Management for KeyBank, and as a financing team member at the Cleveland Housing Network. She will bring that experience to this session to help asset managers better understand the real estate development process.

Founded as a national nonprofit in 1969, NDC has worked for over 50 years fulfilling its mission to increase the flow of capital for investment in low-income communities. NDC acts as partner, teacher, advisor, investor, developer and lender.
