Don’t Miss Your Opportunity to Learn From The Best!

The Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers is proud to share our newest program offering: Generation HAND, an emerging leader initiative designed to support the unique needs of practitioners who are on the rise within the affordable housing and community development industry. The goal of this initiative is to provide needed tools and guidance to our developing leaders as they pursue successful careers in the public and private sector. The program will launch on April 1, 2015 at Busboys and Poets Restaurant, 2021 14th Street NW, Washington, DC from 4:00 – 8:00 PM, with an informative and in-depth panel discussion followed by a dynamic networking event for participants. The panel discussion will include professionals representing the various segments of HAND’s membership – Real Estate Development, Philanthropy, Finance, Government, Professional Firms, etc.  Topics will include tips for professional success, personal anecdotes, industry trends, best practices, lessons learned and more! We hope you will join us for this landmark event. By having a range of perspectives represented by leading industry experts who understand the inner workings of the field, a real opportunity for a well-rounded experience for all attending will occur. These kinds of interactions allow the next generation of real estate and community development professionals to learn from this generation of leaders…and vice versa. Register TODAY!This event is free to HAND Members and Partners!! Many thanks to Community Preservation & Development Corporation, Homes for America, Victory Housing, National Housing Trust, Wesley Housing Development Corporation, Housing Initiative Partnership, AHC and Montgomery Housing Partnership for Sponsoring this event!
