This will be perhaps one of the more important annual meetings in years.
The industry experienced a recent set back described as 'unexpected; by some sources. The glitch occured with consumer groups regarding HR 1779, in spite of months of efforts. But momentum for HR 1779 – now at some 80 co-sponsors – is growing, and that could be the key for the industry to hold onto its precious current levels and kinds of home-only financing.
While some are saying that there could be fireworks during the MHEC portion of the meeting on Sunday – and some heated comments and efforts may arise during other times too – there are other sources who say that they expect a smooth running, professional, cordial, collegial and robust event. Time will tell!
We plan to be there and show the flag in support of the Industry's efforts. It is common for MHARR's VP – Mark Weiss, JD – to attend the MHEC portion of the event.
I hope to see many of you there.
