The educational sessions will be designed to address key topics for the industry.

CARH is also planning social gatherings so you may meet and network with industry colleagues. We are excited to announce that Monday’s reception will again be at a well-known Washington landmark, the Arts Club of Washington. Formerly the home of President James Monroe, the Arts Club of Washington is just three blocks from the White House and offers intimate and elegant settings in a gallery style venue with salons on two floors, and an expansive walled garden and terrace. We expect the site will be an inspirational location for the CARH reception!

The networking reception at the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City on Tuesday, June 25th will give attendees the opportunity to bid on some very appealing raffle items. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit both CARH and the Scholarship Foundation.

The Scholarship Foundation will present the five scholarship winners at a breakfast on Wednesday, June 26th. Rural Development will award its national Site Managers and Maintenance Person of the of the Year recipients at the breakfast as well. Everyone should make plans to attend this exciting and unforgettable event.
