On July 12th, Ballard Spahr hosted a reception honoring Ms. Adrianne Todman and her new position as the Chief Executive Officer of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO). The event attracted over 50 predominantly female professionals in diverse affordable housing and community development practices across the nation.

Prior to joining NAHRO, Ms. Todman served as the Executive Director of the District of Columbia Housing Authority from 2009-2017. As the first female CEO in NAHRO’s 84 year history, Ms. Todman’s remarks to the audience highlighted her continued dedication to affordable housing, the importance of celebrating sisterhood, and the dynamic problem solving capabilities women bring to the housing industry.

Ballard Spahr wishes Ms. Todman great success in this new role, and we are excited to see all she will accomplish in the future.
