Manufactured home community owners and operators, as well as other industry professionals, are meeting Wednesday through Friday in downtown Chicago for the annual NCC Fall Leadership Forum. The event for community owners and operators is hosted annually by the Manufactured Housing Institute, the national advocate for the industry, to discuss the top challenges and opportunities for industry professionals involved in the land-lease business.

NCC is being held at the Westin on Michigan Avenue and is set up for manufactured housing professionals to make new business contacts among the more than 450 industry leaders in attendance.

The NCC Fall Leadership Forum is the Manufactured Housing Institute’s major annual executive-level strategy meeting for members. Manufactured housing industry professionals in attendance will include:

  • Community owners
  • Community managers
  • Home manufacturers
  • Industry service providers
  • Brokers
  • Lenders
  • Consultants

The forum offers new ideas, examines new trends, and provides perspective for manufactured housing industry professionals doing business with communities. Organizers have put together two nights and 1-1/2 days of programming geared toward executives who need a limited time from the office and a high-impact meeting agenda.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in engaging education sessions, including the keynote address from demographer Kenneth Gronbach who will discuss changing household trends and the opportunity for the manufactured housing industry to continue growing.

The event will begin in the afternoon on Wednesday, with onsite registration at 4:30 and a welcome mixer at 6 p.m. The event kicks off in earnest Thursday morning with a networking breakfast, the keynote, and welcome and industry update from MHI, and then panels from industry experts on topics ranging from local and regional trends to expanding and upgrading communities, and keeping up on regulatory topics. Friday morning moves toward information on storm preparation, resident support, and community recovery, as well as conversations on the community rental business, and fair housing practices.
