Registration open for Vermont Statewide Housing Conference

Posted Sep 16, 2014 at 11:35 am by Leslie Black-Plumeau

 The Vermont Statewide Housing Conference is proud to announce its lineup of 18 workshops, in-depth plenary panel and nationally-acclaimed keynote speaker Barry Zigas. Register online today for this important event!

The biennial housing conference will be held Wednesday, November 19th at the Hilton in Burlington. For conferences in the past, we have reached capacity and had to turn people away, so register today for this wonderful opportunity.

Thanks to the generous sponsors of this event, the cost has remained at its traditional low, early-bird price of just $60 for everyone who registers before October 10th.

By pulling attendees and speakers from all across Vermont and beyond, the conference also provides not-to-be-missed networking opportunities.   After you register, consider nominating an individual whose achievements and service should be recognized by the Housing Hero Award.

VHFA is just one of many partners who come together to plan this. Others include:

  • Vermont Department of Housing and Community Development
  • Housing Vermont
  • USDA-Rural Development
  • Vermont Housing and Conservation Board
  • Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition
  • Fair Housing Project (CVOEO)
  • Vermont Realtors®
  • Vermont Mortgage Bankers Association

Vermont tops nation in energy efficiency in recent survey

Posted Oct 8, 2014 at 8:20 am by Leslie Black-Plumeau

energy efficiency mapVermont topped the list of a recent WalletHub survey as the most energy efficient state in the U.S., reported the National Mortgage Professional (NMP) yesterday.

To understand more about the relationship between energy efficiency and home sales, NMP interviewed VHFA’s Maura Collins and other officials from the Green Mountain State. Collins pointed out the role of the state’s building code in promoting energy efficiency in newly constructed homes.

An entire track of workshops on the intrinsic connections between energy use and housing that is affordable for its residents is offered at the Vermont Statewide Housing Conference next month.   Check out the agenda and register soon to take advantage of the early bird conference rate.
