In just a few days, May 24 - 26, CSH Summit 2017 will get underway in Denver, Colorado. In addition to the 10 tracks of learning and nearly 60 sessions, this year's Summit offers unprecedented professional development and networking opportunities.
Summit registration maxed out again this year and so 750 thought leaders from across the nation will become an integral part of setting the future agenda and policy directions for affordable, supportive housing and many other life-changing services.
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is hosting a VIP reception at the Governor's Mansion to officially mark the Summit and Colorado Lt. Governor Donna Lynne will welcome Summit participants to the Mile-High City at the Thursday Morning Plenary session (May 25). Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock addresses attendees the following day, and several other local and state officials will be on hand to lend their expertise on such topics as Pay for Success, building successful partnerships and effective Coordinated Entry Systems.
As was the case for the last two CSH Summits, our healthcare sessions (Medicaid, housing-hospital collaboration, behavioral health) are very popular and have reached maximum attendance capacity.
Interest is high because the third national CSH Summit comes at a time when we are at a crossroads in affordable, supportive housing. The successes we accomplished together are well documented. Yet we have so much more to demonstrate around the potential of supportive housing and other stakeholders to bring to our table. At this crucial time, we must solidify our networks and push even harder to bring supportive housing to scale.
This Summit capitalizes on a strong foundation to attract additional stakeholders to our mission.
