2019 Affordable Housing Conference

posted in: News

Impact Capital recently returned from the Housing Washington’s 2019 Affordable Housing Conference in Spokane Washington, where the team connected with fellow affordable housing industry leaders. The Conference was an opportunity for the team’s newest members to introduce themselves to partner organizations, some of whom have been working with Impact Capital for years. Reflecting on the Conference, Impact Capital’s President Joel Millar said, “As we continue to grow our portfolio, the opportunity to meet with current and future partners in invaluable. The staff left the event excited to continue to push forward to new heights.”

While the team hosted a booth in the exhibition hall to offer its loan products to potential borrowers, there were many information sessions and seminars on topics related to affordable housing in Washington. Some sessions that particularly stood out to the staff were The Metropolitan Revolution, on how local leadership is increasingly innovative rather than national institutions that have been relied on until recently, Emerging Philanthropic Trends in Affordable Housing, featuring a discussion on how foundations are thinking about affordable housing in Washington and nationally, and other sessions on energy energy buildings, the importance of messaging our organization’s story, and an affordable housing tour in the city of Spokane.
