Affordable Housing Conference

June 3, 2016 – 8am-2pm

Edward Hansen Conference Center



Join us for our 9th annual affordable housing conference on June 3. This is Snohomish County’s own, home-grown conference on affordable housing issues, and a premiere opportunity for networking and education. Start the morning with breakfast in the grand banquet hall before settling in for a panel presentation featuring Mayor Stephanson of Everett, Mayor Nehring of Marysville and Mayor Smith of Lynnwood who will talk about the efforts their respective cities are taking on behalf of affordable housing and homelessness. The day will feature 9 breakout sessions including a look at affordable housing best practices for small cities, an update on “22,000 by 2035″, a look at the 1115 Medicaid Waiver which has the potential to bring $54M in funding for permanent supportive housing to Washington over the next 5 years, and many more. M.A. Leonard, Vice President and Market Leader for the Pacific Northwest region at Enterprise Community Partners, will be our featured speaker for the afternoon general session. M.A. is the Chair of the Affordable Housing Advisory Board and the 2015 recipient of the Margaret M. Sevy award.

The Consortium is very pleased to announce JP Morgan Chase as our 2016 Affordable Housing Conference title sponsor. Thank you, Chase!


We also extend our gratitude to our Gold Sponsors for their support
