2015 NMHC Annual Meeting - Emerging Leaders Registration

January 20-22, 2015
La Quinta Resort & Club
Palm Springs, CA

NMHC will once again offer a special Emerging Leader registration option for our 2015 Annual Meeting, January 20-22 in Palm Springs, CA for $700 ($900 after January, 11, 2015).

This special registration allows member firms to send one young leader who might not otherwise be able to attend given the existing meeting registration caps. This year’s Emerging Leader registrants will have access to the entire meeting, including a special reception the first night.  (Note: Anyone who is under 40 and registered for the Annual Meeting, whether as a regular registrant or an Emerging Leaders registrant, is eligible to attend the Emerging Leaders reception.)   

To qualify, attendees must be under 40 and have at least five years of industry experience. Because of space limitations, however, only 200 Emerging Leader registration spots are available, and they are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.  


Once again, NMHC has contracted with Staged Right Events, a centralized hotel reservation system, to manage the hotel reservations for the 2015 NMHC Annual Meeting.  You must register online for the meeting and receive a meeting registration confirmation number before you can reserve a hotel room. NMHC members must be in good standing in order to register for the meeting and make a hotel reservation request.

Here is how the system works: 

  1. Register to attend the Annual Meeting.  (Note: This is the special Emerging Leaders' registration option ONLY. Registrants must meet the qualifying criteria: "Under 40 and have at least five years of industry experience.")
  2. Once you register, you will receive a meeting registration confirmation email that will include a web link to Staged Right’s hotel reservation site.  At the top of the meeting registration confirmation email you will receive a five-digit meeting registration confirmation number that must be entered on the housing website when making a hotel reservation request.  (Note: One (1) room reservation is allowed per registration confirmation number.  Company room blocks are prohibited. Hotel changes can be made online.)
  3. Follow the housing link provided to request your hotel room.  Reservation requests will be processed within 24 hours and confirmed within 14 business days. All reservations will require a deposit in the amount equal to the first and last nights' room charges, and all cancellations made after December 18 will result in a forfeiture of this deposit.

If you register for the 2015 NMHC Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference but not the 2015 NMHC Annual Meeting, you will not be able to make a hotel room reservation request at the La Quinta Resort & Club.  However, the other NMHC conference hotels will be available.

Staged Right can book rooms at the La Quinta Resort & Club (official headquarters hotel with Sessions) at NMHC's group rates or at one of the nearby NMHC official conference hotels at the negotiated rates. If our room block at the La Quinta Resort & Club sells out, Staged Right can place your name on the waitlist, if you request, and can book a room at one of the nearby NMHC official conference hotels. 

Please do not call the conference hotels directly for reservations; all housing requests must go through Staged Right.

For questions regarding hotel reservations, contact Lacey Rimoli-Wiesel at lacey@stagedrightevents.com or 954/404-8252.

Please note:

The 2015 NMHC Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference will be held on Tuesday, January 20, immediately prior to the 2015 NMHC Annual Meeting.  The conference is open to members and non-members, but separate registration is required.  

Members who plan to attend both events are reminded to add any extra nights before the Annual Meeting to their hotel reservations. 


The La Quinta Resort & Club is located at 49-499 Eisenhower Drive, approximately 35 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport, 90 minutes from Ontario International Airport, and a little over two hours from Los Angeles International Airport, San Diego's Lindbergh Field and Orange County's John Wayne Airport.

For those of you arriving by air at Palm Springs International Airport you have the following alternatives for ground transportation (Note: Transportation details will vary for other hotels.):

  • A taxi from Palm Springs International Airport will cost $65-$75 each way and takes about 35 minutes, depending on traffic. Keep in mind that taxis may not be readily available for returning to the airport unless prearranged, so this should be factored in when trying to make departing flights.
  • NMHC has contracted with Hertz for discounted car rental rates, which we have found are typically better than the rates other programs offer.  Reservations can be made by calling the Hertz Meeting Sales Desk at 800/654-2240 or online by clicking here.  To receive NMHC’s special rates, please request CV# 011F0126.

Social Lounge
NMHC's Social Lounge will be open during the Annual Meeting to accommodate attendees who need to connect to the Internet.  Complimentary Wi-Fi access will also be available. 

Attire for the meeting is resort casual.  Comfort and good taste should be your guide.  Palm Springs' average high in January is 77° F and the average low is 57° F.  The evenings and meeting rooms can occasionally be cool, so come prepared for fluctuations in temperature.
