Arizona community, economic development champion Dr. Sheila Harris honored as 2019 LAI International Member of the Year

News & Updates

     PHOENIX, ARIZ. (Sept. 23, 2019) – Dr. Sheila D. Harris, Founding Director of the Arizona Housing Finance Authority and former Deputy Chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, has been named International Member of the Year of Lambda Alpha International (LAI).

The winner is selected from chapter nominations of Chapter Member of the Year honorees for the current or prior year by the International Awards Committee. It based upon commitment to LAI, the nominee’s profession and to land economics with respect to achievement in the private or public sectors, research or education.

Dr. Harris, who owns a consulting firm in Litchfield Park, Ariz., has been a member of the LAI Phoenix Chapter since 2004. She served as Chapter President in 2013, LAI International Assistant Treasurer from 2013 to 2015 and LAI International Treasurer from 2015 to the present. LAI is the honorary society of distinguished professionals in all fields related to the use and development of land.

Dr. Harris was appointed by then Chairman Alan Greenspan of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors as a board member of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. She was the first official from Arizona to serve as a member of the San Francisco Head Office Board. During her tenure she served as Deputy Chair of the Board.

She served under two governors as Arizona State Department of Housing and Arizona Housing Finance Authority directors. During her 6-year tenure in those positions, she oversaw the financing of mortgage revenue bonds, HUD funds, state Housing Trust Funds and IRS Low Income Housing Tax Credits totaling more than $1.5 billion in housing and community economic development.

Dr. Harris will receive the award during the LAI’s semi-annual Land Economics Weekend in Austin, Texas, Nov. 7-9.

“It has been my pleasure to have worked with Dr. Harris over the past several years,” said Elliott Pollack, CEO of Elliott D. Pollock & Co., and LAI Phoenix Chapter member. “As the first director of the Arizona Department of Housing, she was able to accomplish far more than would normally have been expected because of her ability to understand the issues and effectively communicate them while navigating through the bureaucracy with unusual skill.

“She also was intellectually honest when it came to making the best choices for the state. While she was on the Fed’s advisory board, she used her skill set to aid the entire region. She has earned my respect,” Pollack said.

Dr. Harris has spent many hours at the chapter level, assisting with programming content and securing high-level speakers including Janet Yellen who later became Chair of the Federal Reserve Board. Dr. Harris continues to serve on the Phoenix Chapter board as an ex-officio member.

In her term as LAI International Treasurer, she has implemented new processes such as chapter dues payments being paid through online banking and automatic transfers of dues payment to the chapters. She implemented a new LAI International travel policy, and has been instrumental in the due diligence needed to be a good steward of the LAI members finances. She has worked tirelessly through annual budgeting processes.

Apartment industry, residents contribute $53.8 billion to Metro Phoenix economy, $73.2 billion to state;  $3.4 trillion nationally, study shows

Apartment industry, residents contribute $53.8 billion to Metro Phoenix economy, $73.2 billion to state; $3.4 trillion nationally, study shows

News & Updates

     WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 12, 2019) – A new Hoyt Advisory Services Study commissioned by the National Apartment Association (NAA) and National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) reveals that the apartment industry and its residents annually contribute $53.8 billion to Phoenix’s economy, $73.2 billion to Arizona’s and more than $3.4 trillion – or $9.3 billion daily – to the national economy.

The new report, available at, provides a detailed breakdown of the economic impact nationally, by state, and in 50 metro areas.

In Phoenix, the apartment industry supports 284,400 jobs. Other financial contributions break down as follows: resident spending contributes $48.6 billion to the local economy, operations add $1.9 billion, new construction contributes $2.5 billion, and renovation and repair add $770 million.

“As demand for apartments continues to grow locally and nationally, the significant contributions to Phoenix’s economy also increase,” said Courtney LeVinus, President and CEO of Arizona Multihousing Association (AMA). “Apartments drive our local economy by adding employment opportunities, as well as revenue from resident spending, new construction, renovation and repair, and operations, all of which are positively impacting Phoenix.

According to Bloomberg, 200 people on average move into Metro Phoenix on a daily basis. LeVinus noted that creates the need for more rental housing, especially workforce and affordable housing.

“Apartments are an ideal solution for many, including students, recent graduates, young professionals, families and empty nesters,” LeVinus said. “The apartment industry will continue to work with our elected and appointed officials at all levels of government to expand the apartment housing supply to meet demand.”

The study also determined that the apartment industry has a major impact on local, state and national tax economies. Locally, tax payments associated with local apartment operations added $360 million and their residents contributed more than $5.5 billion in taxes to the Metro Phoenix economy. These taxes support schools, improvements to local infrastructure and other critical services in Phoenix.

In Arizona, the apartment industry also gives back to its community.  AMA and our members have contributed over $1 million to charities including UMOM New Day Center, SARRC, Our Family Services, Autism Speaks Arizona, Tucson Homeless Connect and the Julie Hurst and Steve Peters Education Fund scholarship.

Highlights from the report include:

  • All four sectors of the industry have posted very strong growth, punctuated by the construction industry ramping up to meet the unprecedented demand for apartments this cycle – reaching a height of 346,900 new apartments built in 2017, up from 129,900 in 2011.
  • Previous research by Hoyt Advisory Services demonstrated a need to build an average of 328,000 apartments per year at a variety of price points, which would bring continued economic activity. This number of apartment completions has only been surpassed twice since 1989.
  • Hoyt research also found that a significant portion of the existing apartment stock will need to be renovated in the coming years, boosting the renovation and repair sector.

“The apartment industry’s contribution is one that has grown in recent years, fueled by increased rental demand overall as population and employment growth continue and renting becomes a preferred tenure choice for millions of Americans,” said Eileen Marrinan, Managing Director of Eigen 10 Advisors, which partnered with Hoyt.

Visit and view the data, which is broken down by state and metro area. Visitors can also use the Apartment Community Estimator (ACE), a tool that allows users to enter the number of apartment homes of an existing or proposed community to determine the potential economic impact within a particular state or metro area.  For the purposes of this study, apartments are defined as rental apartments in buildings with five or more units.

About Arizona Multihousing Association:

 The Arizona Multihousing Association is the statewide trade association for the apartment industry, representing more than 2,000 members in legislative, legal, and regulatory matters.  The AMA provides services, products, educational programs, and networking opportunities to promote ethical, quality rental housing throughout Arizona.  For more information, visit

For more than 25 years, the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA) have partnered on behalf of America’s apartment industry. Drawing on the knowledge and policy expertise of staff in Washington, D.C., as well as the advocacy power of more than 150 NAA state and local affiliated associations, NAA and NMHC provide a single voice for developers, owners and operators of multifamily rental housing. Today, more than one-third of Americans rent their housing and 39 million people live in an apartment home. For more information, please visit or
