To provide a framework for the discussion of these issues, CHPC has interviewed 28 key industry participants and policy makers.

Their insights were the basis of a panel discussion held on November 17, 2011 at the JPMorgan Chase conference center in downtown Manhattan. Rafael Cestero, Managing Director of L&M Development Partners, John McCarthy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Community Preservation Corporation, Aileen Gribbin, partner at Forsyth Street Advisors, and George Sweeting, Deputy Director of the Independent Budget Office, led by CHPC Senior Fellow Harold Shultz discussed the issues surrounding tax incentives as they are and as they might be. Panelists from Left to Right: Cestero, Sweeting, McCarthy and Gribbin

CHPC will shortly issue a report based on its interviews and panel discussions. A PowerPoint presentation of the issues discussed on November 17, is available here.
