Housing Issue Forums

Housing Issue Forums are periodic educational events that provide a platform for presentations and discussion surrounding pertinent issues and trends in Ventura County housing. These are generally informal 2 to 3 hour gatherings with an opportunity for networking with other housing professionals over refreshments. Forums typically draw 60-80 Ventura County industry professionals, including: developers & builders, agents & brokers, title & escrow officers, consultants, elected officials, government employees, representatives from community organizations and interested citizens.

Light refreshments are provided, ​pre-registration is strongly encouraged along with a small $20 donation. Your donation enables us to continue to offer these Forums, the Annual Housing Conference and other housing advocacy and information avenues. If you would like to present information, suggest a topic, or sponsor a Housing Issue Forum, please contact Karen at or (805) 323-65345.
