Join us for the Region’s Largest Gathering of Affordable Housing and Community Development Professionals!

HAND’s 26th Annual Meeting & Housing Expo

June 20, 2017 | 8 AM – 3 PM
Omni Shoreham Hotel & Conference Center, Washington, DC

With attendance climbing each year, HAND’s Annual Meeting & Housing Expo is the largest convening of affordable housing and community development practitioners in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. 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 explore this year’s conference theme “Beyond Gentrification, Toward Equitable Communities” for an exciting day of learning and networking!

The morning will kick off with the highly anticipated plenary presented by HAND & the Housing Leaders Group, “Gentrification in Washington and the Surrounding Region: Causes, Consequences, and Equitable Growth Strategies.” This session will feature a dynamic presentation and conversation with industry leaders from across the region. Additionally, this year’s Housing Expo will include its first ever Networking Power Hour hosted by Generation HAND, and the conference will close with its signature Awards Luncheon. The luncheon will not only include the presentation of the Housing Achievement Awards and Children’s Art Contest, but also an Exclusive Fireside Chat with five of the region’s premier affordable housing thought leaders. Scroll down to the agenda to read more details!

*** Registration is now closed. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please contact our event manager Mary Neyhard with your phone number and email address. ***

Lessons from the Past, Visions for the Future:
Housing and Community Development at the Crossroads

 

From an award-winning industry authority with nearly 30 years of experience, to a finance and real estate guru who manages one of the country’s largest affordable housing portfolios, a social entrepreneur who is transforming the housing landscape in Baltimore and a policy pro who advocates on behalf of the most vulnerable, the fireside chat at this year’s luncheon is one you cannot miss! These thought leaders will bring a unique perspective to this interactive dialogue that spans across generations and disciplines. Offering their insights on lessons learned, how to weather economic and political uncertainty, and continuing to do the work in the face of dwindling resources, our speakers will explore:

  • What impact has the Washington region’s housing and community development industry achieved?
  • How relevant and equipped is the industry now for the current and future work in the changing context?
  • What lessons should the industry have learned from the past 30 years?
  • What vision and plans should we have?

 

Let us know what questions you’d like to ask our thought leaders!
