Additionally, members participated in a series of small group discussions focused on incorporating lessons learned from the presentations into our state and local work.  We now take the energy generated from two full days networking and learning with us as we look forward to another successful year as a coalition striving to move the state towards healthier housing.  Once again, we congratulate our members on another successful year!
