North Dakota Housing Finance Agency’s annual Statewide Housing Conference is fast approaching and I would like to encourage you to register today!

After an active 2015 for the housing industry in North Dakota, there are many questions about what is in store for 2016. I wish I could say I knew all the answers. Of course no one does, but I do know this – we can only move “Forward Together.” We will have challenges ahead as the state continues to evolve and grow and it will take a spirit of collaboration and teamwork to turn those challenges into opportunities.

The Housing Conference, which will be held Feb. 16-17 at the Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck, is a great place to start that work. We have many great speakers and panels lined up to discuss the most pressing issues facing our industry today and into the future. We have something for every facet of the housing landscape from homeownership to property management. We are bringing in experts in their fields to help better prepare us and impart useful information. We will have a number of great exhibitors ready to talk about how they can help.

But I know that many of you are like me and feel that some of the best parts of the conference happen in the hallways when I can talk face to face with partners about the plans and strategies that are going to make a difference for North Dakota. While we have two days of great sessions, there will also be ample opportunities for those informal conversations where big ideas are so often born.

I need to encourage you to hurry to register because the early bird deadline is Friday, Feb. 5, and after that date the prices will increase. You can register online at If you have questions or need additional information, please contact us at or call (800) 292-8621.

I also want to thank all of our sponsors, vendors, panelists and speakers for helping to make this another great conference. I am excited to see all of you and I sincerely hope you will be able to join us on Feb. 16-17 in Bismarck.
