CEOs on CSR
Executive

Room: B401/402

Two of the core issues for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) today focus on homelessness and hunger in America. In 2015, more than 575,000 people experienced homelessness, and sadly, the number of people suffering from lack of food is much, much larger. For example, twenty-one million children in the U.S. alone receive free or reduced-price lunch. Gain a practical execution strategy from authentic, transparent CEOs to take back to your community to create sustainable public-private partnerships. (FRI-A03)

Change Doesn’t Kill, But Transitions Might
Executive

Room: B302

Apartment community acquisition and disposition is at an all-time high. It is accompanied by frequent company merger announcements leaving executives to quickly create change management plans, telling frustrated employees, "It is what it is; Get on board and be flexible." While change and transition are used interchangeably, they actually mean very different things. Discover what really occurs during mergers and acquisitions and better understand the reasoning behind defining change as something that happens to you while transition is what you experience. Finally, grasp the stages of transitioning properties, what works and what doesn't and develop the skills necessary to live in an industry full of change and transition. (FRI-B10)

Bracing for Impact: The Economists Speak
Executive

Room: B305

Economists point to job creation, incomes, home sales, demographics, interest rates and politics as factors that help shape the apartment market. Included in life’s great questions are where the jobs are going and what type are most meaningful in relation to apartment demand? How much is the single-family sales market affecting the apartment sector? Should we worry about the oldest Millennials starting to buy homes? Are Baby Boomers really renting apartments? Will limited income growth seen nationally eventually limit rent growth potential? How much will apartment construction be impacted by increased regulatory attention on construction lending and on the apartment industry overall? (FRI-C09)
