2017 Midyear Meeting Registration Opens

CARH BROADCAST E-MAIL — Midyear Meeting Update

October 19, 2016

Plan now to attend the CARH Midyear Meeting, to be held on Monday, January 23 through Wednesday January 25, 2017, at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Sarasota, Florida! The CARH Midyear Meeting is widely considered to be the premier affordable rural housing conference in the United States. Leading industry experts and senior-level government officials will present the latest information on regulations, pending legislation, and trends that impact your business.

Our meeting will take place days after the Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States and shortly after the 115th Congress convenes. Be the first to hear from CARH’s Washington experts on a variety of legislative issues and how the new players and leadership will impact the affordable rural housing industry. Attendees will receive up-to-date information on a variety of housing programs and initiatives, including proposed enhancements to the Housing Credit and Bond programs. Special social activities will allow you time to relax and network with your industry colleagues.

CARH will present the prestigious Harry L. Tomlinson, State Affiliated Association of the Year, and Member of the Year Awards. Please join us as we recognize and celebrate your colleagues who have excelled in the affordable housing industry, and moved our objectives forward through their achievements.

The CARH standing committees will also convene. This is your opportunity to discuss issues that are important to you, for CARH to advance through its legislative work, or benefits and services you would like CARH to offer the membership. CARH is your association and you have a voice. We want to know where you want us to focus our greatest efforts so that you will have the necessary tools to increase the efficiency of your businesses. You will also have time to meet and greet the loyal vendors and service providers who offer goods and services to the industry, often at a discount.

Take a break from winter and enjoy Sarasota, Florida on the stunning Gulf of Mexico. Known for sugar-sand beaches, casual elegance and gorgeous Spanish-style architecture, Sarasota was built around its most famous residents, the Ringling Family. This well-known circus family heavily invested in the community, and built fine art museums, hotels and the famous Ringling School of Art and Design. The Ringling legacy continues to attract visitors from all over the world.  From enjoying the beach and other outdoor activities, to the many cultural opportunities available, Sarasota has something for everyone.

The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota is situated on 11 acres near the center of Sarasota city, where you will be within walking distance of cultural and performance venues.
