WASHINGTON, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of private-sector experts, elected officials, scholars, and industry leaders will gather at the Bipartisan Policy Center's Housing America's Future: New Directions for National Policy 2014 Housing Summit on September 15 and 16 in Washington, D.C. Speakers will discuss and debate the future of America's housing policy, and the audience will hear from key players representing every segment of the housing and real estate industry.
Featured highlights include: Moody's Mark Zandi on whether Millennials can save the housing market; Treasury's Michael Stegman on the future of the private-label mortgage backed securities market; FHA Commissioner Carol Galante and several former commissioners on the 80th anniversary of the agency; reflections from five former HUD secretaries including Henry Cisneros and Mel Martinez; and Terri Ludwig on housing's impact in changing communities. Bipartisan duo James Carville and Mary Matalin will also provide a political outlook just weeks before the midterm elections.

"The goal of the summit is straightforward – we want to ensure that housing is at the forefront of the Washington policy agenda," said Pamela Patenaude, director of housing policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center. "By discussing and developing practical solutions with the leaders who will shape housing's future, we can find opportunities to address some of our greatest housing challenges."
The housing sector comprises nearly one fifth of the American economy and is a barometer of our nation's overall economic health, predicting and reflecting conditions from the boardroom conference table to the kitchen table. This two-day, multi-track event will provide a deeper understanding of the housing sector, the policy decisions that help shape it, and the implications for our economy.
More speakers currently confirmed to attend include: Standard and Poor's Beth Ann Bovino; Julia Stasch, interim president of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation; Dave Stevens, president of the Mortgage Bankers Association; Scott Simon, former managing director of PIMCO; Edward DeMarco, former FHFA director; Carol Tome, CFO of Home Depot; the Urban Institute's Jim Parrot; and Steven Berkowitz of Move, Inc.
In anticipation of the summit, BPC has launched a new blog series, featuring insights from speakers and providing a sneak peek into the many facets of housing policy as the program is finalized.
