Conference Program Offered Free of Charge in Innovative Virtual Format on October 6, 2020

Housing Washington, the leading affordable-housing conference in Washington state, is going virtual with a free, one-day educational event on October 6, 2020 from 9am to 1pm. 

Registration is now open HERE.

The program will offer a range of live and on-demand learning opportunities, aiming to attract a broad audience to engage in important conversations that drive housing solutions. 

The conference is offered free of charge this year, courtesy of industry conference sponsors who share a strong commitment to advancing affordable housing in Washington.

Housing Washington is also committed to fostering racial equity and social justice across the affordable housing sector, which is reflected in the conference programming and presenters.

“Housing Washington is an important annual gathering for our industry to learn and discuss critical issues around affordable housing in our state and across the nation,” said Steve Walker, executive director of the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, the lead presenting sponsor of Housing Washington. 
“By going virtual, we aim to remove financial constraints to attend and reach a wider array of participants.” 
“With this year’s unprecedented challenges—the pandemic, economic hardship, overdue focus on systemic racism—we have a lot to talk about,” he added.

Two live keynoters, Dr. Tiffany Manuel, president and CEO of TheCaseMade, and Ijeoma Oluo, Seattle-based writer and speaker, bookmark a range of topical breakout sessions.

All focus on aspects of affordable housing issues during this COVID-19 pandemic and on the systemic racism highlighted by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Attendees can join one of 12 concurrent breakout sessions and can return post-event to view additional sessions in an on-demand format.

“Thanks to our virtual format with both live and on-demand sessions, attendees won’t have to miss any session that interests them,” says Walker. 
“They can also share the on-demand sessions with their teams, extending the opportunities for conversations beyond a typical in-person conference of some 850 attendees.”

The event includes a virtual exposition of exhibitors, recognition of extraordinary people and organizations that are positively impacting Washington state’s affordable housing industry, and opportunities to connect and network.

Attendance is free, however registration is required to attend the event or view on-demand sessions post-event.

Through a special cross-event collaboration, Housing Washington attendees can also extend their learning at the Conference on Ending Homelessness (COEH), which takes place October 7-8. 

Housing Washington registrants will receive a special code to enjoy a discount on their COEH registration. Details on the COEH conference HERE
