The Georgia Affordable Housing Coalition holds two major meeting events annually. A Members Only Annual meeting held in Atlanta in the Spring, and a much larger Affordable Housing Conference that is open to members and non-members, which normally occurs every Fall.

Members Only Annual Meeting

The meeting held in Atlanta in the Spring, provides a day long forum of updates, panels and networking for members of the Coalition. Last year the Annual Spring Meeting was held Wednesday April 21 at the 755 Club at Turner Field in Atlanta.

Georgia Affordable Housing Coalition 20th Annual Conference and Trade Show

The 20th Annual Conference and Trade Show was rescheduled from last October to be held Mar 29 - Mar 31, 2017 in Savannah GA. The conference is open to members and non-members alike, with members receiving a registration discount.

The agenda, which spans topics from tax credit issues to development trends to political updates is under development and speakers are being identified; check back later for additional information. The Trade Show will take place on Thursday, Mar 30 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm concurrent with the cocktail reception. All vendors and third party contractors who do business with, or would like to do business with, developers, owners, investors and operators of affordable housing are encouraged to exhibit at the Trade Show.

The conference is broken down into three tracks. Attendees can choose from the Development Track, Compliance Basics track or Advanced Compliance track. Each track is hosted by experts in the field of affordable housing, with topics ranging from national and regional trends to tax-exempt bonds. Training for the Compliance Basics track is provided by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. The Advanced Compliance track features one and one-half days of training from a recognized compliance expert, and most years, the Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP) training and examination is offered.

The Annual Conference is invaluable for anyone interested in Georgia's affordable housing industry. It has drawn over 400 attendees including developers and owners of affordable housing, managers of affordable housing properties, lenders, syndicators, state and local housing agency staff, real estate attorneys and accountants.
