2016 RRHA Conference Wrap-Up

Thank you to all who attended this year’s Conference. The location continues to provide a positive experience for all. The speakers were exceptional, and the information provided was timely and on target to the needs of the current state of the Affordable Housing Industry. Participation from USDA Rural Development and IHDA were much appreciated. A special thanks to Ingrid Ripley, Assistant Deputy Administrator, and Beverly Casey, MFH Analyst, Washington DC, U.S. Department of Agriculture for participating, and Colleen Callahan, State Director of Illinois USDA Rural Development for presenting the 2016 RD Awards. Congratulations to Phuong Quick of Quality Housing for receiving the 2016 RRHA Barb Schlaefer Achievement Award.

We had a great time during our Annual Trivia Night, our Vendors highlighted what makes their products/services special, and our Silent Auction offering raised over twelve hundred dollars to be donated to the RRHA/Barbara Carpenter Education Fund. We also highlighted two 2016 Education Fund recipients, Robinson Kiwanis (Harmony Park), and CEFS Outreach Shelby County.

Again, thanks to all for your support of RRHA, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017.
