Public policymakers and industry leaders such as Federal Housing Administration Commissioner David Steven; president of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank Dr. Thomas Hoeing; and Gulf Coast Claims Facility Administrator Kenneth R. Feinberg will address pressing real estate issues, including the effects of the BP oil spill on the real estate economy, the future of mortgage financing, and impact of improper foreclosure procedures on the housing market.

NAR, “The Voice of Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

NAR’s last annual meeting in New Orleans was in 2006, one of the first citywide meetings to return to the city. NARdi Gras 2010 will be the 17th meeting NAR has held in New Orleans, and this year’s meeting is set to generate more than $23 million in economic impact.
