NMHC Annual Meeting
This year's Annual Meeting Emerging Leaders registration option sold out as expected and enabled 200 Emerging Leaders to network with and learn from the industry's leading executives. The event kicked off with an Emerging Leaders meet and greet the first night of the conference and then proceeded with two days of deal making and inspirational keynotes.
Highlights included an inspiring presentation by Alan Mulally, the former CEO of Ford Motor Company and the man credited with saving the American icon and a peak behind the scenes of the cultural mismatch that was the merger of AOL and Time Warner by Dick Parsons, former chairman of Citigroup and former CEO of Time Warner.
