After a SELL OUT conference last year, we could not be more excited for this year's 24th Annual Statewide Conference on Ending Homelessness, which will be held on Monday, October 2nd, and Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017, at the Black Canyon Conference Center in Phoenix, AZ.
ANNOUNCING THE 2017 CONFERENCE THEME
This year’s theme, “Take Action: Building Homes, Breaking Down Walls,” is a natural continuation of the theme of the last three years in which the focus was on how to tell the story of our work. This year, we look forward to providing a more solid platform in which to learn how to TAKE ACTION with your stories in meaningful and impactful ways – in your workplace, in the state and federal legislature, and in the hearts and minds of our neighbors.
ANNOUNCING THE 2017 KEYNOTE SPEAKER
With the merging of these two member-based organizations in mind, the Arizona Housing Coalition is pleased to announce our 2017 primary keynote speaker as Dr. Tiffany Manuel, Vice President of Knowledge, Impact & Strategy at Enterprise Community Partners, Inc., and the lead author of "You Don't Have to Live Here: Why Housing Messages Are Backfiring and 10 Things We Can Do About It." As the Alliance's membership of housing professionals and developers begin to mix and mingle with AZCEH's homeless service professionals, it is our hope that we can all come together to find our collective message and voice in order to more effectively impact the hearts & minds of our elected officials, peers and colleagues, and neighbors alike.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED: Awards
Each year, we look forward to honoring some of our state's most hardest working at the Awards of Excellence in eight categories celebrating every level from direct-service to business partnership to lifetime achievement.
