Conrad Egan was president and CEO, succeeded by Maureen Friar, of the National Housing Conference (NHC), a public policy and housing advocacy organization.

From 1969 to 1986, Egan served the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in a variety of community development and housing activities at both HUD Headquarters and in field assignments, culminating in the senior executive service position as director of the Office of Multifamily Housing Management. In this role, his responsibilities included managing all of HUD’s multifamily properties nationwide and administering the related subsidy programs.

After leaving HUD in 1986, Egan went on to serve until 1993 as executive vice president of NHP Inc. where his focus was the development and asset management of NHP’s conventional, affordable, and seniors properties and then for legislative and regulatory strategies.

Egan returned to HUD in 1993, where he worked until 1996, as special assistant to the deputy assistant secretary for Multifamily Programs and subsequently as special assistant to then Secretary Henry Cisneros.

In 1997 Egan moved to NHC where he worked as director of policy until being named the executive director of the Millennial Housing Commission, established by the U.S. Congress to recommend ways to better support good housing for all Americans.[1] He served the Commission during 2001 and 2002. Egan was named the president and CEO of NHC in January 2003.

He also served for eight years as a commissioner for the Fairfax County, VA, Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) and as chairman of the FCRHA for six of those years.

In June 2008, Egan was inducted into Affordable Housing Finance Magazine's Housing Hall of Fame and was honored as "Lord Fairfax" for his work as the Chairman of the Fairfax, Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development.
