Tuesday, September 17, 2013

8:00AM to 2:00 PM - breakfast and lunch will be served

Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC 

Exclusive Event featuring Senators Tester, Corker and Isakson

This CQ Roll Call Forum will take a look at the current state of the housing market in the US and what policy makers can do to encourage market recovery – short term and long term – to ensure future contributions to the GDP.

This half-day event will gather Members of Congress, their staff, industry and association leaders and other key stakeholders together to examine the future of the housing market. They’ll examine the role the market plays on the macro and micro level, and how effective policy can ultimately strengthen our communities for the future.  It will also explore the ways other key stakeholders in the legislative process (i.e. federal agencies, the private sector, non-profit organizations and academia) can work together to move the market forward.
