A Brief History
Founded in 1965, the Southeastern Association of Housing Officers (SEAHO) draws its membership from institutions of higher education with housing officers involved in the administration, operations, facility management, and residential life in the ten (10) Southeastern states of the United States (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia). In addition to this dynamic group, corporate members with a commercial interest in the housing profession are also able to join SEAHO as Corporate Associates.
Initially an informal organization without a constitution or structure beyond a one-day annual meeting, SEAHO has adjusted over the years to best serve its members through the discussion of ideas, mutual concerns, and other valuable services as requested and created by the volunteer efforts of members to build its current structure upon the strong traditions and values of its founders.
In a nod to the continuation of a strong profession, SEAHO prides itself on providing placement opportunities for candidates seeking housing officer positions, developmental workshops for all levels of professionals, and volunteer opportunities for involvement to best fit interests and talents of its membership. With a vision of serving as the leading resource for the higher education housing industry in the Southeastern United States, SEAHO is dedicated to advancing excellence in housing programs and staff by promoting best practices, networking, professional development, and involvement opportunities.
