As CARH members know, June is always a busy month for Congress. It is expected that the detailed Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 budget will be unveiled in May, which means that CARH will be meeting at the height of Congress’s deliberations. It will be vital that CARH make the case for funding of all affordable housing programs. Tax reform will also likely be a top priority in the legislative agenda, and will impact the Housing Credit and Housing Bond programs. You will not want to miss the opportunity of being in Washington, DC at this critical time for the affordable housing industry!

CARH is known for hosting a reception at a well-known Washington landmark and this year is no exception. We are excited to announce that Monday’s reception will be held at Hillwood Estates in Washington, DC. Marjorie Merriweather Post bought Hillwood in 1955 and soon decided her home would be a museum that would inspire and educate the public. Her northwest Washington, DC estate endowed the country with the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia, a distinguished 18th-century French decorative art collection, and twenty-five acres of serene landscaped gardens and natural woodlands for all to enjoy.

Hillwood was opened to the public in 1977 and continues to fascinate visitors today. From the captivating life of Marjorie Post to the exquisitely maintained mansion and gardens, the experience of Hillwood is more magical than even the Fabergé Eggs. The site will be an inspiring backdrop for the CARH reception!

The networking reception at the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City on Tuesday, June 20th 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 21st. Also during the breakfast, Rural Development will award its national Site Managers and Maintenance Person of the of the Year recipients. Everyone should make plans to attend this exciting event during the meeting.

Register now! We look forward to seeing you in June!
