2016 NMHC Emerging Leaders Speaker Series Dallas

February 17, 2016
Harlan Crow Library
Dallas, TX

Join us in Dallas, TX for NMHC’s first Emerging Leaders Speakers Series event of 2016. 


Held several times a year in various locations around the country, the NMHC Emerging Leaders Speaker Series features a senior industry executive sharing his or her insights, observations and advice in a small-scale setting that allows for high quality networking.

The event will feature a “fireside chat” with Ken Valach, the CEO of Trammell Crow Residential. Ken was responsible for guiding the firm through financial crisis and now oversees the development of over 200 rental and for-sale communities. Today, Trammell Crow has 11 development offices with $3 billion under construction and in the pipeline. 

As a very special treat, the event will be held at the Harlan Crow Library in Harlan Crow’s home. Not only is the library located in the home of a true industry legend, it’s also filled with over 8,000 rare books, manuscripts, paintings and photographs covering 500 years of American history, including notes from all U.S presidents and the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
