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
