From VHFA’s Housing Matters: With planning for this year’s Vermont Statewide Housing Conference fully underway, it’s the perfect time to sign on as a sponsor and reap the full promotional value of your investment. The conference will be held Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at the Burlington Hilton. This conference brings together a unique mix of housing financers, advocates, developers, planners, tenants and more. In 2012, over 430 people attended the conference, and 95% of those said they’d return again. While our high point was when the HUD Secretary was the keynote speaker in 2010, we are aiming just as high with this year’s invited keynote ensuring that this will be an event not to be missed. We expect to offer conference workshops on state and federal housing policy; housing’s connection to health care; and community development. We also plan to offer the very popular “Housing 101” introductory workshops, which are a great crash course to people new to affordable housing. As usual, all of the details will be made available on the conference’s website which will be launched later this spring. The numerous benefits to sponsoring organizations are listed below. This year we will highlight our exhibitors more than ever, with prize drawings for those who visit each table. Sponsorships of $1,000 or more will give your company a free table to display materials.
