The Industry Support Conference is brought to you by Oregon Opportunity Network, the membership organization for affordable housing and community development non-profits and partners in Oregon. 

The Fall Industry Support Conference draws over 250 participants, primarily line-staff, administrators and leaders who come together to discuss common issues, successes and challenges. Attendees value the networking, skill-building and innovative idea sharing that the conference sessions provide. 

Conference sessions are organized around six learning tracks that are related to affordable housing and community development practitioners' work.  These tracks include:  1.    Leadership & Policy; 2.    Housing Development; 3.    Fiscal Management; 4.    Resident Services; 5.    Property & Asset Management; and  6.    Homeownership Counseling & Education.  All of our learning tracks also address advocacy, equity practices and cross-sector collaborations across the industry.


Oregon ON has a limited number of scholarships available to staff or volunteers of member organizations to attend the conference.  Scholarships can be used to cover the cost of registration, lodging and travel. The application deadline is August 4, 2017.
