David A. Northern, Sr.

Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer

Selected as one of 50 leaders to participate in Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government's NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program.

The NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program is an 18-month educational program for senior leaders in organizations working to benefit their communities.  At the beginning of the program, each participant selects a specific and significant challenge facing their organization for which solutions will not only dramatically change how their organizations do business, but also enable them to make lasting change in their communities. By the end of the course, each organization can expect to have achieved measurable success to address that challenge.

David A. Northern Sr.'s Performance Challenge: 

The Lake County Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher Department (2,803 housing vouchers) is a High Performer designation Program. The PC is to reposition its Public Housing Department (620 housing units) from a Standard Performer designation to High Performer designation based on HUD’s Public Housing Assessment System, therefore allowing all families - both those in public housing and those receiving housing choice vouchers – to be in high performing programs.

The Achieving Excellence Program equips leaders to increase the community impact of the work they do. The only comprehensive, intensive training of its kind, Achieving Excellence includes three formal sessions at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, as well as executive coaching, intensive peer learning and guidance from author and consultant Douglas K. Smith. This session is will complete in Feburary 2016.
