NALHFA Cancels Annual Conference Scheduled for May

Dear NALHFA Members,

On behalf of the National Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies (NALHFA) Board of Directors, I want to express that the health and safety of our conference attendees is and always will be our first priority. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect people throughout the world, and the situation is fluid, with information changing daily. 

After careful consideration, dialogue with key stakeholders and legal counsel, as well as considerable evaluation of the evolving concerns surrounding COVID-19, the NALHFA Board of Directors has decided to cancel the Annual Conference, scheduled for May 6 – 9 in New York City. It is NALHFA’s hope to be able to postpone the conference to the fall and we are currently working with the hotel regarding our options to do so. 

NALHFA has been intently monitoring developments regarding COVID-19 and have been following the information about the outbreak from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among others. 

The ongoing spread of COVID-19 has resulted in mounting concern over health safety, along with increased travel advisories and government health warnings. With this information and directive, it became clear that the most responsible path forward is to cancel the conference with the intent to postpone this fall. 

NALHFA will be sharing more information regarding issuing registration refunds and sponsorships in the coming week. The New York Hilton Midtown has already initiated refunding deposits for conference attendees. If you have not heard from the hotel you are encouraged to reach out directly. 

NALHFA appreciates your understanding and the ongoing support that our attendees, sponsors and industry partners have shown. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at jpaine@nalhfa.org. 

Sincerely,
Jonathan M. Paine, CAE
NALHFA Executive Director
