The Conference typically features around 40 workshops where participants will learn best practices for housing development, organizational management, resource development and innovative approaches to housing and community development. The Conference also includes a pre-Conference day, packed with gatherings for coalitions, association, and working groups.
For rural nonprofits, the Conference provides an excellent opportunity to network and improve their connection to federal agencies and national nonprofit organizations. For many of the attendees this conference represents their sole opportunity during the year to connect with these important policy makers and experts.
