Meeting/Event Information

    Dear Colleagues: 

    With the continued threat of COVID looming, AHIC has had to make the tough decision to cancel our Fall Affordable Housing Summit in Salt Lake City.   Travel by plane and large events just don’t seem feasible for any of us for 2020.

    Instead, we’ll be taking a page from our popular Spring Webinar series to offer a similar virtual event to you and the industry in October.  Here’s the lowdown.

    What:  We’re planning 6 panels, plus three events:  an Open Forum, a Book Club, and a Networking Cocktail Party

    When:  Panels will be held Tuesday – Thursday, October 20-22 and October 27-29, from noon – 1:30 pm E; the events will be scheduled for those weeks too, stay tuned. 

    Tell Me More!  Your Program Committee is working hard to bring you compelling insights from experts and concrete tools to help you do your job better.  Here’s our line-up.

    • A deep dive into operating subsidies
    • The outlook for the 2020 election– November 3rd will be right around the corner
    • Insights from developers on how they are continuing to respond to the pandemic and the recession – what is the impact on construction, lease-up, operations, and new projects?
    • An exploration of how the affordable housing industry has advanced, or hindered, social justice and equity and ways we can all do better
    • Best practices from state allocating agency leaders responding to the crisis
    • How investors are changing their day to day underwriting and asset management practices


    Can I Afford It?  Our free Spring webinar series had more than 300 participants, including close to 90 investors from our member companies engaging with AHIC for the first time.   We want to make sure that no one gets shut out because of budget constraints, so we are inaugurating a free option for registration.  Having the broadest audience possible is our goal in this unprecedented time.  Sponsorships opportunities will also be available for those members who would like to support this open access approach. 

    Mark Your Calendars.  Be Well.  Stay Safe.

    Dear AHIC Members and Guests:

    We are excited to invite you to attend AHIC’s 2019 Fall Affordable Housing Summit on October 23-24 in Nashville. Join us for terrific opportunities for frank talk on industry developments and plenty of networking. Don’t miss this invitation-only event. 

    On Wednesday, AHIC members convene at 1:00 pm for our annual business meeting and board of governor elections. Then all are invited as we confront the new realities of the impact of climate change on affordable housing. Next we’ll learn the latest crucial tax and accounting issues affecting our industry today.  

    That evening we’ll hoedown at a Welcome Reception, ending at 8:00 pm so you can continue networking at local bars and restaurants. 

    Thursday starts with diving into the landscape of state tax credits and how they can be leveraged to support our developments. Leading experts will share insights on the directions the economy and the 2020 Presidential election may take: what could next year hold for affordable housing, and how can we be prepared to meet it? And we'll peer into the future with a session on affordable housing disruption and the new economy. Will technology crumble the barriers to change in the housing industry?

    Sign up for an affinity discussion table at lunch, or read THIS LAND IS OUR LAND: An Immigrant’s Manifesto, By Suketu Mehta and join our Book Club. We’ll once again have a freewheeling Open Forum that will help you make new connections and learn the latest trends in the field. Our closing dinner will offer up a delicious southern menu, with more music for entertainment.

    The deadline for early bird registration rates and discount hotel reservations at the AC Nashville is September 13th. If you have any questions, please call AHIC’s Executive Administrator, Briana Kovar, at (571)293-0998. 

    We look forward to seeing you in Music City for lively discussions and a foot-stomping time.
