2013 Governor’s Housing Conference Begins This Week


The 2013 Governor’s Housing Conference will be held Nov. 20-22 at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott.
This year’s conference is focused on building strong economies through housing and community development. Attendees will be exploring how to prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities, tackle today’s challenges and build strong neighborhoods and communities for the next decade.

The conference will kick off on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 4 p.m. for the opening plenary, Housing as an Economic Driver, followed by the opening reception at 5:30 p.m. The three-day conference also offers numerous educational concurrent sessions and a variety of thought-provoking plenary sessions led by experts in housing.

Back by popular demand this year, the conference will feature a multitude of “snaps,” 30-minute sessions that link experts to practitioners on specific community development and housing topics.
This year, conference sessions will include:

  • Entrepreneurs: Powering Community Innovation and Individual Assets
  • Echoboomers, Babyboomers, and Immigration: The Changing Faces of Communities
  • 25 Years and Counting: Rethinking the Low Income Housing Tax Credit
  • The Mortgage Web: Navigating the Changing Mortgage Finance Industry
  • Veterans and Their Communities: Strategies for Re-entry and Thriving Lives
  • Social Media for Nonprofits: Knowing What to Say and How to Say It
  • What Every Funder Wants to Know About Your Nonprofit
