Lucas Metropolitan Housing’s top administrator was recently elected to leadership positions with two public-housing trade groups.

Joaquin Cintron Vega, the local authority’s president and chief executive officer, has been tapped to become vice president of International Research and Global Exchange, a standing committee of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), and to be the committee chairman of the North Central Regional Council of NAHRO.

The announcement was made Thursday.

The North Central Regional Council is a membership organization serving as a catalyst for ethical leadership, professional development and legislative advocacy in the affordable housing and community development industry. The international group’s committee serves as ambassadors and liaisons to other countries.

“Our vision takes into consideration that just as every company in the world needs research and development to be aware of emerging trends and best practices, so should professional organizations,” Cintron Vega said. “Housing and community revitalization needs are not addressed just through programs developed within the United States. Social housing and revitalization activities are found throughout the world.”

Established in 1933, Lucas Metropolitan Housing provides affordable housing to adults, seniors and children in its public housing, housing choice voucher, mixed-income and market rate housing units.
