The Confederation is Collecting 2016 NAHC Member Dues

To fulfill our mission, the NAHC needs paid members!

The annual $30 assessment covers the administrative costs of our mission to:
- Serve as an advocate for and a voice of the people who call the Naperville area their home;
- Create an awareness of residents' needs by developing and maintaining relationships with all levels of government -national, state, city, counties, townships, and school and park districts;
- Support member associations with their organizational and program needs - facilitating an interchange of ideas, resources, and information between and among homeowners associations;
- Build, through a cooperative effort, a community dedicated to the enhancement of our property;
- Provide, through regular meetings, special events such as candidate and issue forums, our newsletter and website, a forum for homeowner concerns and interests.

2016 Dues checks can be sent to:
Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation, Inc.
PO Box 5245
Naperville, Illinois 60567-5245

To reduce the administrative overhead associated with dues collection, and to provide financial certainty (and a bonus) to our loyal members, the Confederation Board has agreed to establish a dues pre-payment option as part of this year’s membership drive. Members can opt to buy in for 2016 at this year’s rates ($30 for association, $10 for individual members), or they can lock in their membership for three years, with the payment for the third year discounted by 50% ($75 for associations, $25 for individuals).

By taking advantage of the three year plan, members are able to lock in their membership at current rates, reduce the administrative costs of writing and mailing checks, and get a bargain rate to boot.

To get a three year invoice, email us at naperahc@gmail.com and we'll get one to you. If your Association is not currently a Confederation member, or if there have been significant changes in your association's contacts, download and complete the Membership Application and send it to us along with your dues.
Thanks for your help and thanks for being part of the NAHC!


Confederation Speaks Out on Community Issues

The Confederation recently weighed in on two topics scheduled for consideration by the City of Naperville in July.

City Council asked that we report on resident sentiment for increased regulation of the hours commercial lawn services can work on weekends. While we agreed that 8 AM weekend start times made sense, we were less convinced that Sunday evening operating hours needed to be curtailed at this time. Our full report, in preparation for the July 20 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, can be downloaded here.

Also set for public discussion at City Council on July 19th is a recommendation from the City’s Housing Advisory Commission to expand language in Naperville’s Fair Housing Ordinance to specifically include Federal Housing Choice Vouchers as a legal source of income, ending a loophole that has allowed de facto discrimination to continue despite laws and intentions to the contrary. Read the Board’s position in support of this measure here.

As a part of our mission, we serve as an advocate for and a voice of the people who call the Naperville area their home. If you have any questions about either of these positions, or would like more information on the Confederation and our stands, email us at naperahc@gmail.com



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

The Confederation serves our community by providing the means to foster communication between member associations, homeowners, and government officials. Through this communication, networking, and neighbors- helping-neighbors, the Confederation is the vehicle through which we, as homeowners and residents, can stay abreast of community's affairs and generate a positive influence on our area’s future.
