On April 2, 2009, CHPC held its 50th Annual Luncheon, attracting more than 800 leaders in housing, planning, finance, and government.
With extraordinary opportunities for networking with colleagues, renewing old acquaintances, and establishing new connections, our Luncheon will also present cutting-edge ideas presented by our illustrious keynote speaker, Daniel L. Doctoroff. In addition, the Luncheon is an opportunity to recognize the work of those who have helped shape our City and to show the leadership in Washington, Albany, and here in NYC that the development and preservation of affordable housing and the promotion of sensible planning and growth will create jobs and improve our economy.
Our 50th Annual Luncheon focused on looking forward, with optimism and realism, while recognizing the achievements of outstanding New Yorkers.
