Do More, Be More: Bringing Corporate Social Responsibility Home
Industry Trends

Of all the adjectives used to describe life in the rental housing, certainly “busy” is one in which all can agree. Day in and day out, heads are down focused on completing daily tasks to keep the company and community operational. That said, data indicate that Millennials are drawn to authentic brands who give back. More than participating in charity events, or gathering donations from residents, learn how companies have ingrained CSR as part of who they are and their company brand, to the benefit of both the organization and the community at-large.  (WED-A04)

The 2020s: Can Apartments Meet the Demand?
Industry Trends

With the number of renters in the U.S. at an all-time high, an additional 4.6 million apartment homes will be needed by 2030 just to keep up with demand. The main drivers are an aging population, immigration and younger generations delaying marriage and children. Apartment demand is also forecast at the state level, and for 50 metropolitan areas. How will these findings affect the way you do business during the next decade (and beyond), and what unique opportunities and challenges do they present for the industry?​ (WED-B04)
