Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
Leaders of the apartment industry met Wednesday, March 11 to discuss how much our nation needs a smarter, more balanced federal housing policy. Participants at the meetings, which took place at the National Apartment Association's (NAA) annual Capitol Conference, also urged Congressional action on critical issues such as the liquidity crisis in the capital markets, energy efficiency incentives, opposition to raising the tax rate on carried interest, opposition to union "card-check" legislation, and more.
Brandon S. Lewis, President of the Southeast Division of WorldClaim Global Claims Management, participated in the roundtable discussions of the National Suppliers Council. At the Capitol Conference, the Council addressed additional issues including catastrophic property insurance, affordable housing solutions, capital gains/depreciation recapture, exit tax, barriers to multifamily development, rent control, homeownership incentives and military housing. According to Mr. Lewis, "the National Suppliers Council is an important voice for the multi-family housing industry which is so dramatically impacted by the financial, economic and environmental issues facing our nation."
Mr. Lewis, along with WorldClaim's Chief Executive Officer Michael A. Fusco, represents the only Public Adjusting firm with a seat on the National Suppliers Council. As public adjusters, their expertise includes insurance applications for multi-family housing along with code applications relative to rebuilding after a property loss is sustained.
