Morning Plenary Panel!
The conference features a very special morning plenary panel, with a rare public appearance from three important representatives from the Governor's Office. Joining us will be Executive Deputy Director of State Operations Fran Reiter, Deputy Secretary for Health Courtney Burke and Deputy Secretary for Human Services and Information Technology Louisa Chafee. These three influential State leaders will conduct a wide-ranging discussion on issues related to supportive housing, homelessness, healthcare and other challenges facing our community. We hope you’ll join us for this unique opportunity to hear from three of Governor Cuomo’s top advisors.
We are excited to announce that Alicia Glen, New York City's new Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, will address the morning session on behalf of Mayor Bill de Blasio. Also joining us will be two New York City Council members: Stephen Levin, Chair of the General Welfare Committee, and Jumaane D. Williams, Chair of the Committee on Housing and Buildings. Vicki Been, the newly-appointed Commissioner of the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), will now also be on hand to discuss Mayor de Blasio's plan to develop or preserve 200,000 new units of affordable housing over the next 10 years.
