        ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
        NCSHA's Annual Conference & Showplace is the premier gathering of state Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) and NCSHA affiliate members. It is the main networking event of the year for HFAs and the partners who work with them to increase housing opportunities through the financing, development, and preservation of affordable housing. Take advantage of the unparalleled professional development in ten program focus areas, including communications, finance, governance, homeownership, human relations, information technology, legal, management innovation, rental and special needs housing.  Applaud the best work of all HFAs and congratulate the winners at Monday's Celebratory Opening Plenary Breakfast and Annual Awards presentation. Join your colleagues and friends from across the country to network and have some fun at the President’s Reception.
