2. How can developers use Opportunity Zones to benefit communities in need, rather than amplifying fears of displacement?

3. As the deadline to maximize 2019's capital gains approaches, what are the next best steps for investors and developers alike?

4. How are professionals forming Qualified Opportunity Zone Funds and raising capital?

5. What Opportunity Zone deals have been made, locally and nationally, and how?

6. How will HUD Secretary Carson's preference point system impact affordable housing?
