2013 NMTC COALITION ANNUAL CONFERENCE -
The conference will be held in Washington, DC at the Hotel Monaco located at 700 F St NW in Washington, D.C. A preliminary agenda and registration material can be found below.
The conference will be held during the final stages of the first year of the very contentious 113th Congress. Reps. Gerlach (R-PA) and Neal (D-MA) have confirmed, and the NMTC Coalition has also invited Treasury Department officials, and industry experts to join us in December to offer their insights on prospects for tax reform in this Congress. An investor roundtable designed to provide conference participants with insight into investor views on NMTC is also on the agenda.
We are also excited to announce that this year’s luncheon is sponsored by Kutak Rock, LLP.
