“Beyond Gentrification, Toward Equitable Communities”

Omni Shoreham Hotel & Conference Center, Washington, DC

Register Today!

With attendance climbing to over 1,300 last year, the Annual Meeting & Housing Expo is the largest convening of affordable housing and community development practitioners in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. This year’s conference is themed “Beyond Gentrification, Toward Equitable Communities.” As our localities evolve and transform, one common thread remains – we must continue to seek positive outcomes for all by creating and preserving affordable housing anchored in equitable communities. We encourage you to join us as we learn from HAND members and partners who are being intentional in the development of equitable communities.

The day will begin with the highly anticipated plenary session presented by HAND & the Housing Leaders Group, “Gentrification in Washington and the Surrounding Region: Causes, Consequences, and Equitable Growth Strategies.” Is gentrification helping or hurting our communities? Does it transform and improve neighborhoods, or uproot families and destroy local “character”? Is it possible to address issues that arise as a result of these changes? We will explore all of these questions and more with a dynamic presentation by Derek Hyra, Director of the Metropolitan Policy Center at American University, and panel discussions featuring industry leaders from across the region.

This year’s Housing Expo will include its first ever Networking Power Hour hosted by Generation HAND, plenty of exhibits for you to learn about our members and partners, the Awards Luncheon featuring the presentation of the Housing Achievement Awards and Children’s Art Contest, and much more!
