About this event

Robin Boyce, Executive Director
Housing Development Center

Presentation & Continental Breakfast at 7:30
Networking at 9:00

Should your organization buy or lease space? Is it time to pursue a change? This session will focus on key issues that your organization will want to consider as you look at how best to meet your organization’s space needs now and in the future. Topics covered will include understanding your current and projected program needs, analyzing current and future occupancy costs in your current space, evaluating capital and operating costs for alternative models (new lease, acquisition rehab, or new construction), typical capital funding sources, and selecting the right help to inform this decision. The session will be led by Robin Boyce, Executive Director of Housing Development Center, which has developed community facilities, including Human Solutions’ Multiservice Center in Rockwood, REACH Community Development’s new offices in the North Macadam area, and Ride Connection’s new headquarters, now under construction at NE 99th and Glisan Streets.

Takeaways from this session will include:

  • An overall understanding of some of the benefits of leasing versus owning
  • Some indicators of when an organization might be “ready” to own
  • An overview of the steps and process to reach the best decision for your organization
  • Next steps in your exploration of changing your organization’s current occupancy situation
