Upcoming Conferences and RSG Events

RSG is excited to be leading the discussions on community development with several events coming up over the next two months.  We hope to see you there!

CALED ANNUAL CONFERENCE, MARCH 27-29, ANAHEIM

Each year approximately 350 economic developers come together in the largest gathering in California to discuss emerging trends, celebrate successes, and network with our peers.  This year marks the 39th anniversary of the training conference, which will be hosted jointly by CALED, the City of Anaheim and SBDC.  Jim Simon, President and Principal of RSG will be offering opening remarks at the opening reception and several RSG team members will be on-site to discuss how housing and economic development are partners in solving community development solutions.  Special thanks to RSG Associate Dominique Clark, who volunteered her time as an Annual Conference Planning Committee member.

HOUSING CALIFORNIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE, APRIL 15-17, SACRAMENTO

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Housing California Annual Conference! Housing California works to prevent and end homelessness and increase the variety and supply of affordable housing throughout the State.  Each year this conference draws over 1,500 attendees that are focused on addressing affordable housing issues. This year RSG will be an exhibitor at the event and we would love it if you stopped by to say hello. We will have some pretty cool swag to give away and always have chocolates! Tara Matthews, Principal, Greg Smith, Senior Associate, and Ya-yin Isle, Associate will be anxiously waiting for you so we can “talk housing” with you!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HOUSING RIGHT NOW (TRAINING), APRIL 24, RSG HEADQUARTERS – IRVINE

A slew of housing bills has passed in the last two years and more are on the way.  The State has made it clear that cities must increase housing supply or face repercussions. With so many requirements, how do communities know what they can/should do and what funding is available? What will happen to communities that resist? Tara Matthews and Hitta Mosesman, RSG Principals, and Kathy Jenson and Bill Ihrke from Rutan and Tucker will present the important information you need to know now.

 Please join us for a complimentary training on housing requirements (what are they and what do they mean for my city?) and funding sources available on April 24 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm with a complimentary reception to follow at RSG’s Irvine office, Conference Center (1st floor), 17872 Gillette Avenue, Irvine CA. Adult beverages, soft drinks and snacks will provided immediately following the training in our office in Suite 350.

 Space is limited to the first 50 respondents – invitations will be sent out the week of March 25 so check your inbox!
