2.  Kudos about our Last Conference:

Good morning Mr. Alford,
It was a great pleasure meeting you at our PanAfrican Entrepreneurs conference in Punta Cana a couple of weeks ago. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself to the audience and clarify my present state with future goals. I appreciate your invitation to such a pleasurable and informative conference. I learned a wealth of knowledge not only from our fellow U.S entrepreneurs, but also from the other countries which were present.
The notes that you have issued are a great summary of the events which took place. Thank you again and I look forward to the next event in July.
Best Regards,
Tony Labossiere

3.  Oh Boy! Get Ready for Global Cooling: http://dailycaller.com/2013/12/05/report-scientists-predict-a-century-of-global-cooling/ .

4.  Flashback – When Muhammad Ali Brought Section 3 to Indy:  It was 1993 and we were living in Indianapolis trying to push compliance with Section 3 of the HUD Act.  All it took was for “The Champ” to endorse it and win over the support of Mayor Stephen Goldsmith.  The Alford twins added “frosting to the cake”.

5. New Leadership for Housing Policy:  We congratulate Congressman Mel Watt for being confirmed as the new head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.  The two main components of this office, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, failed our nation during the subprime housing fiasco.  We look forward to working with Mr. Watt as change and reform are quickly needed if we want to cure our ailing economy.

6.  Secure Your Place at our 2014 Annual Conference:  Now is the time for major sponsors and partners to reserve a strong presence at our 23rd Annual Conference, Sheraton River Front, Chicago, IL, July 10 – 14, 2014.  All inquiries should go to Charles DeBow at This email address is being protected from spambots.
