Fifth Annual EMHI Summit - Registration Open

Exciting Changes This Year!

You're invited to join us for the 5th Annual Emerging Markets Homeownership Initiative Summit on Wednesday, December 7, 2011!

This year’s annual Summit reflects the dynamic field by hosting a variety of rapid learning stations for participants to gain valuable knowledge through several 15-minute sessions. We hope our new format for the event will make you better prepared to seize opportunities and confront challenges surrounding homeownership for emerging markets.

This year’s event will be fast-paced and informative for professionals looking for insight into the current status of emerging market homeownership in the State of Minnesota.

The morning session will begin with a keynote address from Dorothy Bridges, recently-appointed Vice President of Community Development and Outreach at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. 

Following the address, Summit participants will have the opportunity to rotate among various rapid learning stations hosted by leaders in the emerging market homeownership arena to get a snapshot of current issues and trends facing the industry. Stations will also be a time for participants to ask questions and gain best practice tips from leaders and colleagues in the profession. Some learning station topics include:

  • Financial Literacy,
  • Housing and Transportation Corridor Issues,
  • Minnesota Housing and Bond Programs, 
  • Federal Housing Administration,
  • Demographics,
  • And MANY more!

3.5 hours of Real Estate CEU credits have been applied for. 


Want to dig deeper into homeownership and emerging markets issues? 

This year we are also pleased to announce an optional afternoon session! We have invited Susan Didier, President of Thompson Associates, to teach her newly-developed course for the Minnesota Association of REALTORS® entitled, Emerging Markets: The New-American Homebuyer.  Her course covers everything from cultural diversity issues such as language barriers and cultural values to explaining real estate in the real world, which highlights topics such as buyer readiness and special first-time homebuyer products. This afternoon course counts towards 3.75 hours of CEU credits. 


Last year's Summit sold out so register early!
