Statement from NAHREP Co-Founder & CEO Gary Acosta on National Convention & Housing Policy Summit
Notice from NAHREP regarding the cancellation of Convention and Housing Policy Summit
It is with profound regret that due to coronavirus concerns, NAHREP must cancel its 2020 National Convention and Housing Policy Summit originally scheduled for March 16-18 in Washington DC. While we did everything possible to avoid this decision, we must act in the best interests of our members, partners and stakeholders. We are especially grateful to our registered members, speakers and sponsors who stuck with us all the way.
To replace this event, we will be announcing a number of large-scale regional events that will take place over the summer. Over the coming days and weeks we will be making a series of related announcements that will provide more details.
NAHREP remains committed to serving our members, our mission and our industry. We are confident that this unfortunate situation will soon pass over and we will all be stronger for it. In the meantime, our staff has prepared FAQs for your convenience displayed immediately below this notice.
