Conference to take place this Thursday at the New York Marriott Marquis
We’re thrilled to announce two just-added special guests for the 14th Annual New York State Supportive Housing Conference this Thursday. Joining us to celebrate the day will be NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer and NYC Public Advocate Letitia James. Both elected officials will appear at our conference cocktail reception, which kicks off at 5:00pm after a full day of workshops, on the 9th floor of the New York Marriott Marquis.
Online registration for the conference is now closed, but those interested in attending can still register by fax or email until Wednesday, June 4 at noon. If you haven’t registered yet, we urge you to do so before Wednesday!
NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer is no stranger to our supportive housing conference. During his previous post as Manhattan Borough President and as a member of the NYS Assembly, Mr. Stringer made multiple appearances at our signature annual event. He will deliver brief remarks at the reception this Thursday to cap off the largest supportive housing conference in the nation.
Ms. James, New York City’s Public Advocate, will also speak and mingle at the conference cocktail reception. Ms. James was elected Public Advocate last year after fighting for affordable housing and economic justice in the City Council for 10 years. She will be making her conference debut with us this Thursday.
We’re delighted to have these two venerable guests join us for the conference’s closing cocktail reception. They will top off a day that will feature three New York State leaders from the Governor’s Office – Deputy Director for State Operations Fran Reiter, Deputy Secretary Courtney Burke and Deputy Secretary Louisa Chafee – as well as NYC Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, State and City commissioners, elected officials, 23 workshops and panels and more than 100 presenters at this year’s conference. We hope you'll share your thoughts on our conference on Twitter using the hashtag #SHNNY2014. See you this Thursday!
