The NMHC Emerging Leaders group held a unique Speakers Series event during the annual NMHC Fall Board of Directors and Advisory Committee Meeting in September. Given the meeting's location in the nation's capital and agenda focused on policy and politics, the group selected an up-and-coming lawmaker as a guest speaker.

Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.), the youngest member of Congress and one of the few lawmakers with first-hand experience in the multifamily industry, shared a newbies perspective on what it's really like on Capitol Hill and how having just three members of Congress with any development experience leaves the housing industry very under represented.

How Your Emerging Leaders Can Get Involved

NMHC's Emerging Leader program is open to anyone under 40, with five years of industry experience and employed by a member firm. Designed to both create new networking opportunities and engage the next generation of multifamily leaders within NMHC, there is no limit to the number of employees a member firm can sign up for the program.

Like other NMHC events, we limit the number of registrations for our networking receptions and Speaker Series events to ensure they are engaging and valuable to the participants. However, there is no requirement that the same people attend the various events. In other words, a member firm can have 10 different people in our Emerging Leaders database and a different person from the firm could attend each event.

We encourage you to have the promising leaders from your company:
