I have some very exciting news that I am thrilled to be able to share with you all! Thanks to the success of last year's first-ever NMA Housing Conference, we have pinned down a date and location for the 2014 NMA Housing Conference. Mark your calendars for August 18–19, we'll be traveling to Chicago, IL!
Thank you to everyone who joined us at our inaugural housing conference. It's hard to say what the highlight was, but some memorable moments were the cocktail cruise on San Diego Bay, the inspiring and moving acceptance speeches made by the recipients of this year's NMA Housing Awards, and seeing industry faces both familiar and new engaged in spirited discussion. Here are a few thoughts from the housing professionals who attended:
I think we can all agree that the past year has been one of the most challenging in recent memory. Up until the last moment, many of us didn't really think that sequestration would go through. But it did, and our nation's housing authorities rose to the test.
