Conference wrap-up

Thanks to everyone who came out to our Vermont Statewide Housing Conference yesterday.

We had a huge turnout — despite some early morning weather-related commuting challenges! — and a great day.

We're still crunching numbers, but it looks like we had approximately 450 people in attendance.

Conference kicks off tomorrow

Months of planning are coming to an end, and we're just a day away from the 2008 Vermont Statewide Housing Conference.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. tomorrow at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in South Burlington. Our first session starts at 9 a.m.

We've placed directions to the Sheraton and floormaps of the venue on our Web site.

Community Awareness Program: Adopt-a-Family

The VHFA Socially Responsible Committee's Community Awareness Program (CAP) will hold its second event Nov. 10.

Barbara Rachelson from the Lund Family Center in Burlington will speak on how to "adopt" a family for the holidays. She'll walk staff through the steps of the process and will outline the typical needs and challenges faced by families in need.

Annual report/wall calendar published

VHFA has published its 2008 Annual Report/2009 Wall Calendar.

This is the eighth year we've published the report in the form of a calendar, in an effort to give the report a longer "shelf life" than a typical annual report might enjoy.

Each month of the calendar features a homeowner VHFA helped with a mortgage, or a multifamily project we helped finance.
