Housing Expo to Provide Actionable Info for Homeowners

On Saturday, April 11, 2015, the nation will mark the 47th anniversary of the signing of the 1968 Fair Housing Act. In celebration of that important anniversary and Fair Housing Month, the City of Naperville is co-sponsoring the Naperville Housing Expo to educate and connect residents with existing housing resources and advocate for a vibrant and diverse community.
The Naperville Housing Expo will take place on Saturday, April 11, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Northern Illinois University Naperville Conference Center, 1120 E. Diehl Road. This first-of-its-kind event will feature vendors and resources for every stage of homeownership – from buying and keeping a home to maintaining and renting residences. Whether a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned homeowner, a landlord or a renter, residents are sure to glean information from at least one of the three planned panel discussions with field experts.
Together the event’s sponsors – the City of Naperville, DuPage Homeownership Center, BMO Harris Bank, Naperville Bank and Trust, and Mainstreet Organization of Realtors – are working to create an event that makes an impact on the Naperville community, and all are invited to attend.
Walk-ins are welcome, but RSVPs to housingexpo@naperville.il.us by Monday, April 6 are appreciated for planning purposes. For more information, visit www.naperville.il.us/housingexpo.aspx.

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

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 host for educational, non-partisan forums on issues, referenda and candidates.


  • The Confederation at Work

    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

    "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
