BOISE, Idaho – Registration is now open for the 2015 Conference on Housing and Economic Development to be held at the Boise Centre October 6-7.

Organized by Idaho Housing and Finance Association, the conference will provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss relevant and timely topics of lasting impact with industry influencers.
Gerald M. Hunter, President of IHFA, says that the housing conference will examine issues critical to the future of the housing and economic development industries.
“We want to focus attention on how nationally-relevant topics being discussed in housing and economic development circles will impact communities in Idaho, and other regions in the Northwest,” he said. “Topics like millennials becoming homebuyers, smart homes, and senior housing are just a few of the issues that will have tremendous impact on businesses, nonprofits, and public agencies.”
The keynote speakers, nationally recognized from appearances on CBS, CNN, NBC, and more, will address trends and trending topics in housing and economic development.
