MHI’s National Communities Council (NCC) is expanding its reach with the NCC Western Summit, scheduled for Aug. 14-16 at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino in Chandler, Ariz., near Phoenix.

This new event in the western United States will feature education, networking, and exhibitors geared to community managers and smaller owner/operators. Join others within the manufactured housing industry for three days of community insights, educational workshops, ongoing engagement, and a local plant tour. Hear leaders in the industry discuss the state of the market, resident relations, effective marketing and much more.

What the Western Summit Has to Offer

Mark Bowersox is MHI’s executive vice president for industry relations.

“The NCC Western Summit is a new event designed with small community operators and community managers in mind,” Bowersox said. “It begins with a tour of a manufactured home production facility where attendees will see homes in every phase of construction. From there, it’s a day and a half-filled with training sessions on measuring customer satisfaction, maximizing positive customer experiences and fair housing.

“Our speakers will also share big-picture issues such as the state of the industry and MHI’s showcase of manufactured homes on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.,” Bowersox said. “Of course, there will be plenty of networking opportunities to talk with peers or meet with exhibitors and sponsors. There’s no other event of this caliber in that part of the country.”

The Western Summit’s educational workshops have been curated and created with manufactured home community managers and operators in mind. They will address the resident experience, customer satisfaction, fair housing and much more.

Thirteen sponsors and 10 exhibitors from all segments of the industry will attend the latest among manufactured housing conferences and trade shows.

The factory tour will be held Aug. 14 at Skyline Champion’s Chandler, Ariz., production facility. Attendees will get a description of the plant’s construction process. They will see manufactured homes in every stage of production, and watch them go from a bare chassis to a fully built home. At the end of the tour, attendees will walk through a completed home.
