Hurry: Early Bird Rate Ends March 31!

Big news: ALTA is proud to host Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Acting Director Sandra Thompson during ALTA Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C., on May 17. Thompson will sit down for a conversation with ALTA CEO Diane Tomb to discuss the FHFA’s work overseeing the safety and soundness and housing finance mission of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This is your chance to hear straight from the source about how the FHFA is dealing with important challenges facing homebuyers, the housing market and the broader economy, including the continued need to promote sustainable and equitable access to credit and affordable housing opportunities nationwide.

The acting director of the FHFA since June 2021, Thompson’s nomination to serve as the next director of the FHFA is currently before the full Senate. Since 2013, Thompson has served as Deputy Director of the Division of Housing Mission and Goals at FHFA, where she oversaw the agency’s housing and regulatory policy, capital policy, financial analysis, fair lending and all mission activities for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks. Prior to joining FHFA, Thompson worked at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for more than 23 years in a variety of leadership positions.

The room block closes April 20. During ALTA Advocacy Summit, you’ll get the inside scoop on D.C. politics, hear from federal leaders and meet with several members of Congress and their staffs. This in-person and virtual event provides the only opportunity you’ll have to engage with Congressional leaders and create a lasting impression on members of Congress.

As with ALTA’s other events, we will be closely tracking any COVID-19 restrictions and keep you informed if there are any changes. As of March 1, Washington, D.C., has lifted its mask mandate in most indoor settings. While the keynote speakers, education and networking events will be in person at ALTA Advocacy Summit, meetings with legislators and their staffs will be conducted virtually from the hotel.

No need to feel intimidated: ALTA staff will walk you through everything you need to know before your meetings with legislators. We’ll tell you what to expect and provide talking points you can use to ensure a successful visit.
