Attend United for Action and Help Launch a Movement

One of the best things about conferences is that they give you the opportunity to stretch a little- mentally and physically. A good conference provides new information and pushes you to think differently about the way you do your work. And instead of being tied to a desk all day, a good conference has you moving from room to room, meeting new people and gaining new perspectives. Plus, if you’re traveling from out of town, you get a chance to explore a new place or revisit favorite spots in a city you enjoy.

United for Action, the NLIHC 2013 Housing Policy Conference and Lobby Day, is just that kind of conference. We hope you’ll excuse us for boasting a bit, but we’re pretty proud of everything we do to ensure that the time you spend with us March 17-20 is enriching, exciting and worth every penny. Just take a look at this Pinterest board full of pictures, tips and resources and you’ll see the energy we invest in making our conference an essential part of your housing advocacy year.

This year, because we’re launching our Housing Tax Reform campaign in connection with the conference, we think this event has more to offer than ever. We’re taking real leadership in the fight to create the first federal housing resource in 30 years to build and preserve housing for the poorest of the poor, and we know you’ll want to be part of the movement we’re building.

Intrigued? We hope so! Check out the registration site to learn more about the conference and reserve your place. Registration rates increase on March 1, so now is the time to take action.

It’s time to unite!

The start of a new Congress. The beginning of the President’s second term. A nationwide effort to secure a new funding source for the National Housing Trust Fund.

What do these three things have in common? They’re the top reasons housing advocates from around the country need to be in Washington, D.C. March 17-20 for United for Action: the 2013 NLIHC Housing Policy Conference and Lobby Day.

The presidential election and the ongoing debate over debt and the deficit mean 2013 will bring extraordinary challenges—and opportunities—for housing advocates. Unite with advocates, providers, tenants and residents, and policy professionals from across the country to learn how we can work together to solve the housing challenges of the lowest income Americans.

Online registration is now open, so you can immediately take advantage of early registration discounts and secure your seat at the table today.

This is a crucial time for housing advocates to take action. We hope our conference inspires you to challenge yourself to consider new solutions, develop new partnerships and hold your elected leaders accountable for solving America’s most pressing housing problems. You will come away from these few days in D.C. with renewed energy and practical tools to make positive change in your country, and your community, during the year ahead.

Will we see you in D.C.?

Will we see you in D.C.?

It’s the middle of summer, but NLIHC is already thinking ahead to next spring. We’re excited to announce that our Annual Housing Policy Conference & Lobby Day will be March 17-20, 2013 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.!

We expect 2013 to be a year full of challenges and opportunities. It is vital that housing advocates from across the country come to the nation’s capital to advocate for socially just housing policy.

To make your life a little easier, we’ve secured a discounted room rate at the Omni for our conference attendees. Hotels fill up fast in Washington, so we encourage you to reserve a room today using this website, or by calling 1-800-THE OMNI (843-6664) and asking for “NLIHC 2013.”

Our staff is hard at work developing workshops and selecting keynote speakers for the 2013 conference. We’ll have more updates for you soon on the topics and sessions the conference will offer. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you: What do you want to learn about at the 2013 Housing Policy Conference? What can we do to help you have the best experience possible?
