Best known for his speeches and workshops on storytelling, presenting, and strategic communications, Goodman launched his firm “to help good causes reach more people with more impact.”

His keynote presentation, Storytelling as Best Practice, will emphasize how storytelling can be a critical tool for the affordable housing industry to convey its message to elected officials and the public. He will share with the audience why you must tell stories, how to tell them, and what types of stories you should tell for the greatest impact.

In addition to Goodman’s keynote, the 14th annual conference will feature high-level panels and networking opportunities to help developers and owners find the solutions they need to build more housing and a stronger future for their companies.

Attendance is reserved exclusively for people who are primarily affordable housing developers, owners, and management firms, plus state and local housing finance agency representatives. Service providers, syndicators, lenders, vendors, and manufacturers must exhibit or sponsor to attend.

The regular registration rate is $799. An early-bird rate of $749 is available through Thursday, Sept. 14. Discounts also are available for nonprofits and multiple company registrations. To register or for more information, visit
