Last week, the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association welcomed over 120 industry professionals to Washington, DC for its 2010 Spring Affordable Housing Policy Forum. The highly praised program explored the critical nexus between today’s changing public policy environment and affordable housing development, as well as combined NH&RA’s traditional transaction-oriented sessions with valuable social networking opportunities. Particular highlights of the event included Thursday’s panel on housing policy and budget issues, Friday’s legislative update from key Congressional staffers, and Helen Kanovsky’s keynote address on the Obama Administration’s goals for reinventing the nation’s housing policy.

If you missed the 2010 Spring Forum, don’t worry. NH&RA will offer all of the PowerPoint presentations from the event through its website for FREE! In addition, digital audio recordings of select panel discussions will be made available for purchase in the next few weeks. Check back soon for details.

NH&RA is currently planning several upcoming conference programs, including the 2010 Summer Institute & Pre-Conference Symposium on New Markets Tax Credits (July 21-24), and NCAHMA’s 2010 Affordable Housing Underwriting Conference (October 5-6). Online registration for both events is now open! Contact Thom Amdur for details.
