A Short History of the Compliance Summit


In retrospect, perhaps my worst investment in 2019 was a 2020 planner!

- Scott Michael Dunn

After months of planning, in January of 2020, we signed the contracts for the September 2020 Compliance Summit to be held in a gorgeous venue in Scottsdale, Arizona. I think the news playing in the background as I signed may have been discussing something called COVID-19 that they thought might be a bit of a problem. Well...COVID happened, the in-person Summit did not.

Actually, the Summit did happen, it just morphed into a 9-hour virtual edition with hours of supplemental information on Costello University. There were great presentations by my good friends Matt Rayburn, Thomas Stagg, Jen Brewerton, Amanda Lee Gross, Stephanie Naquin, and Michelle Sites. Additionally, there was an amazing video series crafted by the talented  Wed Daniel that provided a real practical mental framework for dealing with difficult circumstances - timely indeed! Finally, no one can forget the inspirational interview with Grace Robertson, a former IRS analysis who was crucial in the formation of the Section 42 program we know today. It provided a valuable historical perspective of the tax credit housing program but also had important things to say about leadership and influence. 

Besides the educational and inspirational content, there was a game show, Zoom receptions, fellowship, and encouragement. It was an important break and all left more committed than ever to the important housing we provide. THEN we met again in December and April with important updates on the Average Income Test and Emergency Rental Assistant programs. Each Summit Extension also included open Q & A. 

Overall the Summit has provided over 14 hours of education, networking, and encouragement, with a session or two still to go! All of this has been enjoyed by over 100 original Summit attendees and many more in replay format since. Also, it is not over - there is at least one Extension session to go!

COVID is not gone, but as more and more people are vaccinated, we feel that we have reached a point where some will be comfortable and safe meeting in a group [see the FAQ for more details on safety steps taken by the venue]. If that is not you, however, do not despair. We are arranging to livestream the conference as a virtual event! This will allow everyone who wants to join us and allows us to meet the obligations I signed to back in January of 2020. 

It has been a long journey, but I look forward to seeing you all in September, whether in person or online, for our second annual Summit! We will also continue to offer supplemental virtual sessions and a ton of expanding material on the Summit site at Costello University until the 2022 Summit!
