Housing looms large at ProDealer Industry Summit

Residential construction has been riding an upward escalator in recent months – hitting an eight-year high in July. But will it last?

The upcoming ProDealer Industry Summit will tackle that question during a Friday morning educational seminar hosted by David Crowe, the National Association of Home Builders’ chief economist.

Crowe’s 2016 Economic & Housing Forecast will address the pace of the housing recovery to date and provide evidence of where it will go next year, along with some details on what is being built and where.

Crowe is responsible for NAHB’s forecast of housing and economic trends, survey research and analysis of the home building industry and consumer preferences as well as microeconomic analysis of government policies that affect housing. He is also responsible for the development and implementation of an innovative model of the local economic impact and fiscal cost of new home construction, which has estimated the net impact of new housing in over 500 local markets.

With a PhD in Economics from the University of Kentucky, Crowe was Deputy Director of the Division of Housing and Demographic Analysis at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development before joining the NAHB.

Coming to the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Oct. 28-30, the ProDealer Industry Summit is an exclusive three-day educational and networking forum designed to promote the growth of LBM dealers, distributors, wholesalers and the manufacturers that supply them. LBM dealers will benefit from sharing insights and best practices from leaders in the industry, in a relaxed format that encourages networking and personal interaction.

The ProDealer Industry Summit is presented by the NLBMDA (National Lumber & Building Material Dealers Association) and by Hardware + Building Supply Dealer (HBSDealer).
