Registration is now open for the Virginia Housing Coalition’s Third Annual Housing Credit Conference! The conference will be held October 8-9, 2015 at the Westin Hotel in Richmond. The conference will give tax credit professionals of all experience levels the information and training they need to create stronger proposals and more sustainable projects.
The conference is aimed at for- profit and non- profit developers, lenders, investors, lawyers, accountants, market analysts, appraisers, consultants, planners, architects, housing authorities, and local governments- just about everyone who works in or with the Housing Credit program!
The program will offer sessions for new and experienced professionals. For newer practitioners, the “Tax Credit 101” series will feature topics such as deal fundamentals and structure; finance; QAP basics; application skill building; and compliance. There will be a range of other sessions for more experienced professionals that will include topics such as RAD, Permanent Supportive Housing, Joint Venture Partnerships, How to Pull Together a Deal, and Compliance. The conference’s new format this year will integrate the theme of equity into almost every session.
Valuable networking opportunities will also be woven throughout the program. We are happy to introduce a new pre- conference session this year: a “Speed Dating”/ Networking Session. This addition to the conference will be a great way to network and meet potential new partners. The first day of the conference will also conclude with an outdoor reception and live music.
VHDA will also host a 2016 Tax Credit Program Forum at the Westin on October 8th from 9:30 to 10:30am. There will be no changes to the QAP this year, but the forum will highlight manual and application changes. Please note that separate registration (free) is required for this session.
