2013 Annual Meeting & Housing Expo

Over 1,000 HAND members and partners came together at the Crystal City Marriot for HAND’s 22nd Annual Meeting & Housing Expo, a true celebration of COLLABORATION, INNOVATION and TRANSFORMATION. HAND’s signature event included the presentation of  nine Housing Achievement Awards to well deserving organizations and individuals, an invigorating discussion with leadership from the region’s housing finance agencies, an informative keynote address and of course great opportunities to catch up with colleagues at the housing expo.

Thank you to all of our members and partners who made the event a success. We can’t wait to see you next year!!

Congratulations to our 2013 HAND Housing Achievement Award Winners!

President’s Award for Lifetime Achievement

Among those honored on June 11 was David Reznick, who received the President’s Award for Lifetime Achievement in recognition of his nearly 40 years leading industry-changing financing strategies that have helped create thriving communities and homes for families with low-incomes, nationwide.

“David’s leadership and competency in demystifying the complexities of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program gave the nonprofit sector the confidence to use it to further their mission and help countless families access housing they can afford,” said Nina Janopaul, President, HAND. “We all want to say ‘thank you’ to David for helping us get started and keeping us moving forward.”

In addition to his HAND Housing Achievement award, HAND also surprised Mr. Reznick with a surprise tribute video featuring his colleagues, families and friends sharing heartfelt accolades about his impact on the affordable housing and community development industry. Thank you to Enterprise Community Partners for sponsoring the 2013 President’s Award Tribute Video.
