San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
Novogradac & Company LLP will bring together hundreds of active new markets tax credit (NMTC) professionals for its annual New Markets Tax Credit Conference. The event, being held Jan. 24-25, 2013 at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, Calif., will once again serve as a forum for a wide variety of high-level group discussions, allowing program participants of all experience levels to network and expand their industry knowledge. During the course of this two-day conference, attendees will explore a host industry issues, discover new and innovative ways to develop projects in an ever-changing environment, analyze legislative changes in the wake of the recent election and fiscal cliff, and grow their technical skills and knowledge.
“We’ve designed this event so that attendees can grow their knowledge base and discover new strategies, and it will serve to provide a strong foundation on which to build projects as well as introduce participants to new faces within the industry,” says Owen Gray, conference chairman and partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s San Francisco office. “Now is an excellent time to meet and mingle with NMTC professionals. With all of the uncertainty surrounding the federal deficit and looming cuts, presenting a strong front and continuing to increase one’s understanding and awareness of the program is more important than ever.”
This year’s conference will cover a host of new and timely issues, including the relationship between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and NMTCs. Novogradac & Company has crafted a two-track agenda that uncovers the very latest project opportunities and scrutinizes successful projects so that attendees can learn from real-life case studies. Panel sessions will feature information critical to project planning, including qualified low-income community investment (QLICI) portfolio management and how to track and monitor the community impact of a specific project. A track focusing on recent NMTC case studies will look at the lessons to be learned from Mercado del Barrio and selected charter school projects, as well as potential exit strategies.
Like all Novogradac conferences, the New Markets Tax Credit Conference boasts a line-up of the industry’s elite. Conference panelists, who are prominent experts in the field of community development, will clearly and thoroughly address the latest industry information and facilitate meaningful networking opportunities. Along with the keynote luncheon and two networking breakfasts, attendees are also invited to take part in a special networking reception to be held Thursday, Jan. 24 at 5 p.m.
The conference will also feature two pre-conference workshops: NMTC 101: The Basics and NMTC Compliance Hot Topics, both on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. Separate registration is required and additional fees apply.
