Naperville's Neighbor to Neighbor Network


October Meeting Focuses on Homeland Security

In recognition of October being Public Safety month, the NAHC meeting on Saturday morning, October 17th at 8:00 AM (for coffee and networking) in Meeting rooms B&C of the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle Street. will focus on Homeland Security.
Our panel, including FBI Special Agent Mark Gutknecht, City of Naperville Coordinator for Office of Emergency Management Dan Nelson, Naperville Park District Police Chief Carl Schnibben, Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis, and a representative of the Naperville Police department will discuss how individually and collectively they work to keep our neighborhoods safe.
Coffee and networking for this meeting will be sponsored by Naperville Bank and Trust. They are big enough to handle $50 million loans to businesses in the area, yet small enough to hand out cookies and coffee when you come in the bank, lollipops to kids, and even dog biscuits to “man’s best friend”. .
We're looking forward to seeing you on the 17th!!!

Be Proactive - Don't Let Your Vehicle License Plates Expire

State Senator Michael Connelley reminds us that with no state budget in place, Illinoisans are being called upon to take more responsibility for renewal of their license plates.
The Secretary of State’s Office has announced suspension of its mailed license plate renewal program, savings nearly $450,000 a month in postage money. But motorists can still receive a reminder notice via email through
The registration ID and PIN from the vehicle registration form are necessary to sign up, but motorists who don’t have those materials handy can find them by calling the Public Inquiry Division at 800-252-8980

Founded in 1979, the Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation believes in connecting people to what matters most - each other, neighbor to neighbor.

Who We Are:
  • A knowledge resource, covering topics of interest to our members and their neighborhoods. We seek out and share information on issues and developments, events, association governance, and property management and maintenance.
  • An advocate for homeowners; voicing community concerns through Public Position statements, advisory groups, and liaison committees.
  • A stage where speakers address what is important to our member associations and Naperville area residents.
  • A conduit bringing government to the people. Our meetings create dialogue opportunities with community leaders.
  • A facilitator of educational, non-partisan forums on issues, referenda and candidates.

  • What We Do:

    The Confederation received the Naperville League of Women Voters 2008 Rosemary Martin Democracy in Action Award for its ongoing commitment to involve Naperville residents in local government and create opportunities for education on public issues important to the quality of their lives.

    "The Confederation receives information from the City and meets regularly with City Staff to review those issues pertinent to all homeowners. Many concerns are solved quickly with the positive communication between the City and homeowners. It's a very constructive and motivated group."
    A. George Pradel, Mayor Emeritus

    "For the Naperville Park District, the Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation is an important partner in our success. The NAHC has become an increasingly vital conduit to communicate with residents about our programs and events, and their committed efforts in helping us to reach our constituents is invaluable."
    Ray McGury, Executive Director, Naperville Park District

    "Serving in an at-large capacity can be very time consuming to understand the needs of 145,000 people and meet those needs. The salvation of being effective was listening to the (Naperville Area) Homeowners' Confederation, which was my constant source of information and fount of knowledge."
    Former City Council Member Gary von Behren as reported in the Naperville Sun 10/1/2008

    "The role NAHC plays in fostering meaningful communication between residents and decision-makers in government is crucial to our democratic process. It is a role you play well, and we commend you for that."
    Michèle D. Johnson, Former President, ECHO Board of Directors

    "Its our liaison to the City and it keeps us informed. We would not know about certain issues if it were not for the wealth of information disseminated to us by the Confederation."
    Marie Muller, Former Delegate, Maplebrook II
