Real estate developers, investors and professionals are invited to attend the 2013 LOCUS Leadership Summit, taking place on June 4 and 5, 2013 in Washington, DC.
This year’s Summit, themed “Bringing the Market to the Hill: Realigning the Federal Role in Real Estate,” will convene real estate professionals from across the country to connect with members of Congress and discuss how federal policies and investments can better support more walkable, sustainable developments and lead to a growing economy.
Participants will hear from industry leaders and chief policymakers on a variety of topics including programs such as the New Markets Tax Credit and TIFIA, best practices for developing smart growth, and the role of policy reform in sustainable development.
Participants will have the option of joining LOCUS for our annual Hill Day visits, to speak directly with members of Congress and their staff about policies that support walkable, sustainable development.
An optional walking tour of a local neighborhood with developers and public officials close to the project will provide in-depth insights about the interaction between policy and development.
The Summit will culminate at the 2013 Leadership Summit Congressional Reception, honoring members of Congress who have championed legislation that supports great neighborhoods and strong local economies across the country, as well as a real estate developer who is leading the field in creating walkable places.
Summit registration is $200. Registration includes a networking reception on Capitol Hill, two networking lunches and a chance to add to the discussion of future walkable, sustainable developments. Tickets for the walking tour of a local development are an additional $20.
