Andy Tyman, chief executive officer of the Geneva Housing Authority, was recently re-elected to the treasurer position of the Washington-based Public Housing Authorities Directors Association.
Founded in 1979, the national organization represents the professional administrators of approximately 1,900 housing authorities throughout the United States. It works closely with members of Congress in efforts to develop sensible and effective public housing statutes and obtain adequate funding for low-income housing programs. The association also serves as an advocate before the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on a variety of regulations governing public housing nationwide.
PHADA has a 50-member Board of Trustees, including Tyman, who was first elected to the board in 1990. He served as vice president of professional development from 2000-05 and has been a member of the group’s Finance Committee for over 22 years.
As treasurer, he will continue to chair the group’s Finance Committee, oversee the association’s financial affairs and serve on the group’s Executive Committee.
Tyman also is a member and past president of the New York State Public Housing Authorities Directors Association.
