WHF has been a central resource for women and men in the housing and financial services industry throughout the New York metropolitan area since its inception in 1981. As market cycles and political and government leaders have come and gone, WHF has provided up-to-the-minute information, networking opportunities, and the means for professional development for its members.
WHF's members are a highly diversified group of accomplished individuals drawn from all aspects of housing and finance throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Members are professionals in architecture, banking, law, development, construction, insurance, investment banking, municipal finance, historic preservation, and more. Members come from the private sector, from state, local, and federal agencies, from not-for-profit organizations, and community groups.
In 1997, a core group of professionals launched a vibrant New Jersey chapter which presents programs of state-wide interest. More recently, we added a Westchester/Connecticut chapter which has held several interesting and timely events. WHF's monthly programs include breakfast and luncheon meetings, as well as late afternoon workshops and seminars.
Please mark your calendars to join us at these upcoming events for 2013 — 2014.
About Women in Housing and Finance (WHF) of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
WHF's monthly programs include breakfast and luncheon meetings, as well as late afternoon workshops and seminars. The speakers and panelists are experts in the field and key public policy makers. In addition, we sponsor festive events that allow members to network in informal social settings. These include an autumn gathering to greet new members, a January holiday party, a behind-the-scenes springtime field trip to explore new and exciting developments and, to conclude the year, our June annual membership meeting and dinner at interesting locations throughout the city.
Our programs have featured state and local elected and appointed officials such as the NYS Comptroller, state and city housing commissioners, banking superintendent, and the chair of the NYC Planning Commission, financial institution executives, community-based and private real estate developers, and architects and planners.
WHF members are also committed to public service through contributions to worthy not-for-profit organizations during the year. WHF members have a holiday tradition of helping others through donations of clothing or fundraising for community needs.
To further fulfill its mission to promote the professional development of its members, WHF maintains an updated list of positions available in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
