Registration closes today at 3 pm for “Home Ownership and the America Dream,” a Next Economy Summit hosted by National Journal and The Atlantic.  The event will begin with a poll presentation featuring the results of the latest Heartland Monitor Poll on how average Americans are navigating the U.S. economy, especially as it relates to the housing market.  The remaining program will include keynote speakers and a panel discussion—all exploring a central question looming after the crash and market meltdown of 2008: should home ownership continue as the center of the American dream?

NJ’s Ron Brownstein will moderate a panel including  National Association of Home Builders CEO Jerry Howard, Alex Pollock from the American Enterprise Institute, National Fair Housing Alliance President and CEO Shanna Smith, and Sarah Rosen Wartell, EVP of the Center for American Progress.  A keynote address and Q&A with former Secretary Henry Cisneros will follow.

The event will be held on Thursday, March 24, 2011 at the Newseum’s Knight Conference Center from 7.45 AM – 11.30 AM.  To secure your spot, click here before 3pm.
