It’s fair to say 2016 was an interesting year electorally. Whether you’re in a pit of despair or ready to grab your pitchfork, SCANPH is here to provide a little clarity, insight, and big-picture thinking to really make sense of the outcomes beyond this year’s election, such as affordable housing’s prospects in future races. That’s right, it’s workshop time. Join us for the last SCANPH workshop of 2016, and we’re convening this special event in partnership with the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles.

Utilizing the Ballot for Affordable Housing: Looking Beyond Election 2016

We have an awesome line-up of speakers (and we’ll serve lunch too!). So please join us for a conversation that is all about looking ahead: We’ll examine future possibilities for housing/homelessness action at the ballot based on 2016 outcomes, the effectiveness of messaging to the public on our issues, and voter sentiment around affordable housing. You’ll walk away with key takeaways for the housing, development, and planning industries beyond the 2016 election. 

Ask questions. Debate. A good time will be had by all, but we need you there to add to the conversation and end 2016 on a forward-looking note. Full details and REGISTRATION HERE
