TruPlace is pleased to have co-hosted the DC Metro CHPA Networking event with Streamline CHS, Corporate Apartment Specialist, and Attaché last Thursday evening. The event took place at Ballston Place in Arlington, VA. with phenomenal attendance.

Before the actual event, a few of us had the opportunity to volunteer at DC Central Kitchen helping to prepare meals. Annually, DC Central Kitchen prepares over 3 million meals for those in need around the capital and offers vocational training and other resources to help combat the problems facing the area.

The evening networking event brought in industry leaders from across the region and the highlight of the night was guest speaker Christina Winn, the Director of Business Investment for Arlington Economic Development. Since 2014 Christina has led Arlington’s efforts in business retention, national recruitment, and entrepreneurial support. She was instrumental in the recruitment of Amazon HQ2 to the National Landing area and presented on the impact of Amazon on the region and specifically with regard to housing and business tourism.

Tania Odabashian stated, “It was a great event. The networking was great as always, but the speaker was amazing. For TruPlace on behalf of CHPA to land Christina Winn, Chief Architect of what Washington Business Journal is calling the “Deal of a Lifetime” was a major score.”
