For the third consecutive year, Kerry Dervil, a senior property manager with the Peabody Companies , a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms, will serve as president of the NEAHMA (New England Affordable Housing Management Association) Board of Directors.
Formed in 1989 to facilitate communication between management agents and local HUD and state housing finance agencies, NEAHMA is a member of the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA), the nation’s largest association for managers and owners of privately owned, government-assisted housing.
NEAHMA’s membership consists of owners and management agents representing over 50,000 units of affordable housing throughout New England and addresses housing issues at the national, state and local levels.
Dervil, a resident of Taunton, holds a C10P Tax Credit Certification, an Associate in Risk Management (ARM™) designation, a Fair Housing Compliance (FHC) certificate, a Certified Professional of Occupancy (CPO) certificate, and a National Affordable Housing Professional Executive (NAHP-E) certificate. She is a Specialist in Housing Credit Management (SHCM) and a Certified Property Manager (CPM), as well as a notary public for the commonwealth of Massachusetts. This will mark her third and final year leading NEAHMA.
“It is a great responsibility to head the board of NEAHMA, but one Kerry has demonstrated she is more than up to for the past two years and now a third,” said Melissa Fish-Crane, principal and COO of the Peabody Companies. “We are proud of Kerry’s contribution to NEAHMA and of her commitment to the work it does to provide quality housing to people in need.”
