The panels include:

• Making the Case for Housing • Different Options for Expanding Housing Supply • The South Bay Perspective on Housing Legislation

The last panel will discuss from a variety of perspectives the significant and at times controversial housing legislation being considered in Sacramento.

Confirmed Speakers include:

• Larry Kosmont – Chairman and CEO, Kosmont Companies (Moderator) • Greg Anderson – Senior Vice President, Shea Properties • Bill Brand – Mayor, City of Redondo Beach • Darin Chidsey – Chief Operating Officer, Southern California Association of Governments • Jeff Kiernan, Regional Public Affairs Manager, League of California Cities • Anne McIntosh – Community Development Director, City of Manhattan Beach • Wally Siembab – Research Director, SBCCOG • Kenneth Stahl – Professor, Chapman University • Jennifer Svec – Legislative Advocate, California Association of Realtors®
