Welcome to Section 8 Administrators Association, Inc.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to our Association.

The Section 8 Administrators Association was founded in 1978, by a group of dedicated individuals for the purpose of providing a forum for the exchange of information on the management of the Section 8 program now called the Housing Choice Voucher program.

Today, the Association, the largest of its kind in the nation, boasts over 120 member agencies in Massachusetts and surrounding New England states!

The Association is committed to conducting training of vital concern to our membership, and providing advocacy on behalf of our member agencies. The Association provides quality programs with qualified local and national trainers. Each year we bring in several recognized experts in the subject to provide our members with quality training.  We also alert both Executive Directors and Section 8 Administrators to both changes and proposed changes by HUD.  The past several years we have seen changes that have been unprecedented.

Even today, many of the original founders are still active members, serving as Officers or Board members, and continue to provide input and understanding for new Administrators as the program requirements continue to change from year to year.

Visit our site and view the upcoming training sessions and the training sessions that the Association has provided to its members over the past year.

Thank you for visiting,

Gail Neibaur, President
Section 8 Administrators Association
