Plan today to attend MHI's 2013 Annual Meeting! Your participation
and input are needed at MHI's 2013 Annual Meeting. Yes, these are challenging times
and the industry has much at stake. However, by working together we can succeed
in increasing manufactured housing's share of the housing marketplace. At the Annual
Meeting a major focus will be on the industry's efforts to revise the Dodd-Frank
Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act provisions that negatively impact
In early January 2014, new regulations stemming from provisions of Dodd-Frank will significantly limit many low- to moderate-income consumers’ ability to obtain financing needed to purchase manufactured homes unless the manufactured housing industry is able to pass the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act (H.R. 1779). This legislation is critical for remedying the regulatory burdens facing the industry and restoring full access to financing that is a necessity to potential homebuyers and our industry. The Annual Meeting will highlight the industry’s efforts to secure relief needed from Dodd-Frank and clearly identify what actions are needed with Congress and the CFPB to meet the industry’s goals.
The MHI Annual Meeting is the largest membership meeting of the year and will provide
opportunities to hear from speakers, exchange information with industry friends,
and stay current on housing marketplace trends. During Monday evening's Annual Awards
Dinner, special awards will be presented to those individuals that have gone above
and beyond for the industry during the last year. The prestigious MHI Chairman's
award, State Association Executive of the Year Award, Frank Walter Standards Award,
and Jim Moore Excellence in Communications Award will all be presented.
Your involvement in MHI and active participation in working to find solutions to
problems are essential to the future of the industry. We look forward to seeing
you September 29th - October 1st in Carlsbad, California.
