The 2019 Housing Colorado Now Conference took place October 9-11 at the Keystone Conference Center. Over 945 affordable housing professionals from 33 states attended, making this 31st annual conference our biggest one yet!
Keynotes Our keynote speakers provided inspiration throughout Conference. David A. Smith from the Affordable Housing Institute presented “The View from 2024: How We Thrived Over the Past Five Years” during Wednesday’s opening session, and Chaos Expert Corinne Hancock wrapped up Conference on Friday with insights from her experiences of building teams in high-pressure situations around the globe. We also heard from expert panelists during Thursday’s breakfast session about Federal housing policy, and our Thursday lunch panel discussed how their work in transportation, education, health care, and criminal justice all intersect with housing.
Workshops To ensure that we offered educational sessions relevant to all attendees, this year’s conference tracks were: Advocacy & Policy, Design, Development, Finance, Property Management & Services, and Small Communities. Popular workshops focused on a wide range of topics, including: private activity bonds, trauma-informed design, workforce housing development and delivery, anti-growth initiatives in Colorado, permanent supportive housing, alternative financing, and innovative tools to support permanent affordability. We also offered pre-conference sessions on Wednesday morning for new attendees: “The Continuum of Affordable Housing” and the First-Time Attendee Orientation.
Networking One of the most unique aspects of Housing Colorado’s annual conference is having opportunities to connect with hundreds of fellow members of the affordable housing community. After wrapping up each day’s educational sessions, attendees caught up with old and new friends at our evening receptions. We began with Wednesday night’s Welcome Networking Reception at the Conference Center, which was followed by the Young Professionals Reception at the Keystone Adventure Center. Thursday night’s Connections, Cocktails, & Cards reception at the Conference Center included a live band with karaoke and a Texas Hold’em tournament.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and sponsors!
