Results from a recent poll conducted on behalf of the NAHB indicate home ownership remains a strong cornerstone for the American public, and economic indicators show the housing sector is gaining some positive momentum. This trend may be tempered by other factors slowing a housing and economic recovery, including lending policies and the growing inventory of distressed properties in certain markets.
The myriad of economic and legal issues facing the home building industry will be addressed during HB’s Home Building Industry Legal Issues Symposium, a seminar developed in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders. The symposium will be held March 29, 2012, at the NAHB’s National Housing Center, 1201 15th Street NW, Washington, D.C. Anyone with a professional interest in the home building industry is encouraged to attend.
The program features an exceptional faculty including representatives from the Judiciary, the Federal Trade Commission, former Deputy Solicitor of Labor, General Counsels from six builders, attorneys from top firms representing the industry, and NAHB. Topics include big picture projections for the industry, ways companies can adapt and manage in the slow economy, top legislative and regulatory issues, top issues for industry GC’s, the latest on green building, and updates on litigation, insurance, and electronic media issues affecting the industry.
