Ballard Spahr and CSG Advisors are excited to announce that our eighth annual Western Housing Conference will be held in Denver this year. Join us for an informative conversation on the key issues pertaining to affordable housing.

For those new to housing and young professionals, we will also host an early morning Affordable Housing 101 session. The session will serve as a primer for the discussions of the day.

Our main session will kick-off with a special keynote presentation by Priya Jayachandran, President of the National Housing Trust. Ms. Jayachandran will provide her insights into the challenges of addressing the rental affordability crisis and the acute need for new solutions.

Leading affordable housing professionals will present an informative and lively discussion, providing perspectives on recent developments in the affordable housing industry. Our panel presentations will include:

  • Federal and State Legislative Advocacy Update
