In January 2000, Elizabeth Moreland Consulting introduced a new Housing Credit Designation to the industry called the National Compliance Professional (NCP). Created to allow industry professionals an opportunity to prove their dedication and knowledge in the compliance aspects of the Housing Credit Program, the designation includes a professional certification and a Membership Group.

"I think this designation is very important to all people involved in the Housing Credit Program. I recommend it to all my managers; it shows that someone is certified to administer the program and has a constant stream of reliable information at their fingertips." Richard Kropa, NCP-E, NDC Real Estate Management, Inc. Scranton, PA

Elizabeth Moreland, President of Elizabeth Moreland Consulting, Inc. felt an additional designation was needed despite the numerous other industry designations that are available. "It was time our industry and the people in the trenches had a designation and Membership Group that was affordable and actually assisted them in the monumental task of maintaining compliance," Moreland said.

What is really, truly important for success to those of us in the trenches is….

  • Information and constant communication with other individuals who understand what we do!

  • The ability to network with our peers to learn new techniques, hear new ideas and share our successes and failures!!

  • And the opportunity to get the things we need like training for both us and our staff as well as tools that will help us get the job done quickly and easily at a price that our properties can afford!!!

and that is exactly what you get as a member of the NCP Membership Group!

Today, the NCP Membership Group is comprised of over 500 industry professional across the nation! Dedicated to the pursuit of affordable housing compliance and strong operations of their properties, these professionals find "It Pays To Be NCP™"... because of the continuous support; stream of information, news and insights; substantial discounts on trainings and products; and incredible networking opportunities.

"I am very glad that you have chosen to do this. I and my managers need the "hands-on" practical day-to-day information, training and experience that you provide. Our obligation is to keep the projects in compliance… the NCP Membership Group makes that easier to do!" Theresa Feely, NCP, Coburn & Feely Property Management, Inc., Burlington, VT

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" Kris Vodraska, NCP-E, Community Housing Initiatives, Inc., Spencer, IA

I guarantee it is worth the work to earn the designation and join the group. I now have a position with a company, doing exactly what I want to be doing at this point in my career. I owe a great portion of credit to Elizabeth and her NCP. Many Thanks!” Denise M. Smith, NCP-E, National Equity Fund, Los Angeles, CA

  • SPECIAL and DISCOUNTED invitation to our Annual National Compliance Professional Conference! This is an event you won’t want to miss as it is a Housing Conference with a difference! Not hours and hours of panel sessions, but  rather dedicated short track trainings that give ample time to learn about an issue, discuss the issue and hear from others in the industry on how they are handling the issue! Plus loads of networking opportunities.

  • 10% DISCOUNT off all Elizabeth Moreland Consulting, Inc. workshops and most products.

We do this through our  Industry Update emails sent directly to you anytime any industry news occurs, special industry events are announced, and membership updates occur.

  • Without a constant influx of information, you can’t successfully run your properties and ensure compliance. However, we won’t bog you down with useless information… we will weed through the piles of information and pare it down to the items of real importance to you! And when we communicate to you, it will be in short, concise writing as we know you don’t have time to read pages and pages. You need to get right to the heart of the matter! Also, if the news item we are reporting is about a new regulation, we will read it for you and translate it so you don’t have to read through miles of gobbly-gook! (Now of course, if that is what you like to do, we do also give you the actual regulations so you have them for yourself.)

  • As a member you will have numerous networking opportunities and abilities to connect with your peers. We understand that it is important not to operate like an island in this industry especially when there is a wealth of information and experience contained right within our burgeoning NCP Membership Group.
