Baltimore – Mary John Miller, the U.S. Treasury Department’s undersecretary for domestic finance, will be the luncheon speaker on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at the 2012 Governor’s Housing Conference, “Restoring Communities Across Maryland: Creating Jobs … Expanding Housing Choice.”
Ms. Miller is responsible for developing and coordinating the treasury department’s policies and guidance in the areas of financial institutions, federal debt financing, financial regulation, and capital markets. She formerly worked at T. Rowe Price Group, Inc., where she was the director of the fixed income division and a member of the firm’s management committee.
The one-day governor’s housing conference is the largest and most comprehensive forum of its kind in the state, convening experts, advocates and lawmakers to discuss issues related to affordable homeownership and rental housing in Maryland. DHCD has been host for 11 years, with the Homebuilders Association of Maryland. The Maryland Affordable Housing Coalition has been a partner for the past two years.
The conference theme, “Restoring Communities Across Maryland: Creating Jobs … Expanding Housing Choice;” reflects the significant role a healthy housing market plays in generating jobs, stabilizing neighborhoods and helping families of all walks of life establish a foundation upon which they can build toward the future.
Conference workshops and seminars will be divided along four tracks, “Strengthening Vibrant Communities,” Homeownership Now,” “Rental Housing Financing,” and “Advancing Green Initiatives.”
The 2012 Governor’s Housing Conference will be held at the Baltimore Hilton. Early bird registration has been extended to Oct. 5. Visit DHCD’s website at mdhousing.org or click here to register or to learn more about the conference.
