Wednesday Closing Session – Speaker Carlotta Walls LaNier
More than 25 organizations from every facet of the affordable housing industry come together each year to plan the conference in an effort to create an engaging educational experience for all attendees.
After 13 highly successful conferences, the “Michigan Conference on Affordable Housing: Partners Building Communities” changed its name to “Building Michigan Conference: Housing, Assets, People, Partners.”
This change recognized an essential truth about both the conference and the industry. Whether we’re involved in the creation or preservation of housing, the provision of services to the homeless, the revitalization of neighborhoods including downtowns, providing funds or receiving funds, we are all trying to make Michigan’s communities better places to live, work, invest, and play. The key part of our original name is “Partners Building Communities.” That focus has not changed.
