MHI Designed NCC Fall Leadership Forum with Executives in Mind

The full schedule for the 6th Annual NCC Fall Leadership Forum is on the MHI website, along with details on registration and accommodations. The Westin on Michigan Avenue is the venue for the 2018 NCC Fall Leadership Forum.

Event organizers said the forum becomes larger each year, generating networking opportunities and resulting in more business deals.

NCC Fall Leadership Forum offers a strategic look at high-level issues facing the community segment of the manufactured housing industry, with participants from across the country

The event is designed to allow executive professionals to engage and connect with their peers. All attendees benefit from being presented with insight on the latest industry trends and activities. Furthermore, the event will capitalize on what has been a strong year in the manufactured housing industry, with the prospect of a bright 2019 ahead.

The NCC Fall Leadership Forum looks to minimize time out of the office and maximize education and interaction with peers and potential clients. 

Thursday’s full day of programming will open with breakfast. That night features an evening reception at 360 CHICAGO in the John Hancock building.
