NAA Participates in HUD Panel on Nation’s Housing Needs

On July 25, Greg Brown, senior vice president of government affairs, represented the National Apartment Association at a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) stakeholder gathering, termed a “HUDdle” by the Department.

HUDdles are held several times a year and regularly bring together well over 100 stakeholders from across the spectrum of housing providers and groups in both the public and private sectors to discuss the needs and conditions that affect the U.S. housing market.

The panel was titled “Examining Our Country’s Housing Needs,” with the focus on solutions to our nation’s housing shortage and how to create partnerships and break down barriers to increase our nation’s housing supply and, in turn, meet burgeoning demand across the country.

HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson opened the event, and Seth Appleton, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research, then moderated the panel. In addition to Brown, participants included Dan McCue, senior research associate at the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, which produces the NAA-sponsored annual State of the Nation’s Housing Report; and Daria Daniel, associate legislative director for community, economic and workforce development at the National Association of Counties.

Brown’s presentation, which focused on NAA’s newly-expanded Barriers to Apartment Construction Index, synthesized research findings in 29 U.S. cities about factors that stand between demand and the housing supply necessary to satisfy it: factors such as the impact of community involvement, construction costs, approval process complexity and more.
“It was an honor to be able to brief such a broad cross-section of American housing stakeholders on research as important as our Barriers to Apartment Construction Index. The implications of this research, to illustrate broadly applicable lessons that can be employed anywhere and simultaneously provide a granular view of local circumstances, is invaluable in our efforts to expand housing supply and take pressure off of housing affordability,” Brown said. “NAA is very grateful for the opportunity to interface with our federal policymakers and other industry stakeholders directly, and we look forward to working together with a broad coalition to help bring the supply of apartment homes back where it needs to be.”

NAA plans to make a comprehensive video of the proceedings available as soon as possible. 






2020 Conference Prospectus Will Be Available in Late September

The Sponsorship Opportunities and Exhibitor Prospectus for the 2020 FAA Annual Confernce & Trade Show will be available in late September to provide suppliers with information needed for budgeting purposes.

Be on the lookout for your guide to exhibiting, sponsorship and adverting for the 2020 event, which will be held September 30 - October 2, 2020 at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Fla.






Lead Retrieval Available for 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show

Lead retrieval is available for exhibitors at the 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show. The two options can be purchased at a pre-conference discount. Onsite at the conference rates will increase $50. 

♦ BC600 Hand-Held Device - Advance purchase: $200; Onsite purchase: $250

♦ KLEERLeads Mobile - Advance purchase: $150; Onsite purchase: $200

The versatile app enables trade show exhibitors to capture, qualify and follow-up on leads or surveys directly from their smartphones or tablets and then securely access this data in real time from any location. With KleerLeads Mobile, it’s easy to add custom qualifiers such as "ready to purchase" or "follow up in two months" as well as personalized freeform notes. 

Exhibitors can even attach the prospect’s photo, business card or other information to use during follow-up. With KleerLeads, not only can exhibitors capture leads on the trade show floor, but they can also use their mobile devices to capture leads anywhere they encounter attendees, such as at hotels, social functions and more. 

Note: Lead retrieval device rental/mobile app purchases are available to 2019 FAA trade show exhibitors only.

Learn more about both options at www.faahq.org/leadretrieval and then reserve yours today.

A more robust and comprehensive supplier directory has replaced the old PSC Buyer's Guide, which in many cases only included one company under a specific category. In the new digital directory, every supplier member has at least a basic listing with contact information and the opportunity to purchase an enhanced listing for $250. The enhanced listing includes premium placement, a company description, contact information, a link to your website and social media feeds.
