25th Anniversary Celebration
2016 Annual Meeting & Housing Expo

More than 1,300 affordable housing and community development industry members united at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA for a day of collaboration, innovation and transformation!

Themed “WE ARE HAND” this dynamic meeting explored innovative housing solutions through the lens of what the housing industry can accomplish regionally by combining resources and successful strategies from Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia; celebrated outstanding affordable housing communities and leaders; and captivated participants by challenging housing practitioners to look at how we conduct ”business as usual” and envision a more streamlined way to help the communities we serve.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors, guests, and partners for making this year such a success and look forward to seeing you next year for our 2017 Annual Meeting!

Celebration of 25 Years of Affordable Housing Leadership!
