WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 17, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Charles E. Carey, a Member of the Public Finance Section of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., will participate in two panel discussions at the 2013 National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) Annual Conference & Showplace. The conference is being held October 19-23 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Mr. Carey’s first panel is entitled, “Comprehensive Compliance Planning.” Panelists will discuss how Housing Financing Agencies (HFAs) can respond to the increased compliance responsibilities growing out of both recent sweeping regulatory changes and new business opportunities. They will also explore approaches for meeting HUD, Federal Housing Administration, Dodd-Frank, Securities and Exchange Commission, and other program requirements.
His second panel, “Dodd-Frank Update: Are You Ready?”, will review Dodd-Frank rulemaking, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau mortgage rules set to take effect in January, and the recently published new proposed rule on risk retention and qualified residential mortgages (QRM).
At the NCSHA Annual Conference, HFAs and their partners will gather to share their most effective affordable housing and community revitalization strategies in the wake of one of the deepest and most prolonged housing and economic downturns in our nation’s history. Program speakers will address the most pressing issues before HFAs and their partners in 11 core areas of activity: communications, finance, governance, homeownership, human resources, information technology, legal, management innovation, rental, special needs housing, and sustainable housing.

He has assisted various clients in connection with cross-border investments, including investments in offshore limited liability corporations and partnerships.
