Core Competency Education Modules
In recognition of APHAA’s commitment to professional development, the Association (in 2008) adopted a Core Competency Education Strategy, mandatory for Association membership, and recommended for all senior managers of publicly funded housing agencies.
Our professional development strategy was built on the belief of our membership that, because of the ever-increasing complexity of housing administration, a successful chief administrative officer (CAO) of any publicly funded housing agency must possess strong knowledge and have skills in a wide variety of areas. The CAO must recognize that certain basic areas of knowledge and skills must be customized to the particular nature of their agency, our industry and the current environment (political, social, economic and technological).
These are the Core Competency Areas our Association believes are the foundation on which a successful CAO career will be developed and thereby provide the stakeholders of our industry what they deserve; effective, efficient housing administration. The Competencies are shown below group in the Five Education Modules that have been developed. The competency of "Legislation" is built into each of the individual Modules.
- Asset Management & Development
- Client Services
- Human Resources
- Risk & Financial Management
- Strategic Planning, Governance & Leadership

In addition to the Core Competency Modules, we offer an Orientation Course for new Cheif Administrative Officers and other Senior Housing Administrators.
