CMTA President and Intel representative on housing panel

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on April 30, 2018

The California Association of Relators is hosting a panel of thought leaders this Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. at the Sacramento Convention Center (Room 202)  as they examine workforce housing solutions for an expanding workforce population in the Sacramento region. CMTA's Dorothy Rothrock and CMTA Board Member from Intel, Jonathan Williams, will sit on the panel.

California’s housing supply and affordability crisis threatens the state’s economy and its global leadership in manufacturing. High housing costs discourage in-migration of manufacturing workers and puts upward pressure on wages which hurts our competitiveness in California. Rothrock and Williams will discuss the importance of turning this around for our manufacturing and technology sector growth. 

The panel discussion and audience Q&A session – presented by C.A.R.’s Center for California Real Estate - will explore the relationship between housing availability and community viability, perspectives on Sacramento’s trajectory based upon the current housing supply crisis, the appropriate role and leadership necessary by local government, statewide and regional business leaders, and ways Sacramento can capitalize on opportunities in the technology space.

This event is free. For more information:
