HUD Secretary Ben Carson to Speak at Government Forum

United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Benjamin Carson, will address attendees at the 2018 Five Star Government Forum in Washington, D.C., on April 3.

Now in its 9th year, this event is a day-long gathering where leaders in mortgage banking and the federal government engage and have an open dialogue about pressing issues.

"We are honored to host Dr. Carson as a keynote presenter," said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. "The importance of HUD's leadership in furthering the health and wellness of the United States housing market simply can not be overstated. We look forward to hearing Secretary Carson communicate his vision toward ensuring that responsive and responsible housing policies are maintained for the benefit of homeowners."

With representation from HUD, FHFA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae, this year's Government Forum speakers have played an integral role in providing quality leadership to the federal government and the mortgage industry. 

“A collaborative working relationship between regulatory agencies and the industry promotes understanding and ultimately benefits homeowners,” said Delgado. “The Five Star Government Forum facilitates the growth of those relationships by bringing together interested stakeholders to promote the exchange of ideas and best practices. We look forward to hosting this discussion."
