2020 Texas Housing Conference: July 20-22, 2020 & October 5-6, 2020.

With the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 (the Coronavirus), we want you to know that the safety and health of 2020 Texas Housing Conference participants is our top priority. The TAAHP Board of Directors no longer believes an in-person conference in July is prudent. However, because many of you have reached out to support TAAHP’s effort to facilitate the Texas Housing Conference in any and all ways possible, we have been working behind the scenes to reimagine the Conference into a program that brings the best of both worlds together into one. This year we are bringing you the Texas Housing Conference PLUS!  Two formats, one price – two conferences for the price of one! Join us virtually July 20-22nd for an information packed set of educational webinars, virtual booth exhibits and virtual networking opportunities you won’t want to miss! Then, October 5 & 6 we will bring the second component with a live event at The Fairmont in Austin, Texas. With double the event space, prudent social distancing and other recommended safety measures can easily be observed so that we can gather safely and navigate doing business within our “new normal”.  Our partners at The Fairmont have put in place an extremely high level of safety protocols to maximize the safety of its guests. Coupled with additional health safety measures planned by TAAHP event planners and staff, we are excited to be planning what is sure to be a fun, informative, prosperous and safe event for all who attend.
