The Homebuilder World Post-Pandemic 

   As part of the 2020 LPC webinar series, CDC presents a panel of top homebuilders in DFW who will talk about the homebuilding business post the pandemic. Topics will flow from Home Sales and Traffic Generation to Home Design Shifts and Supply Chain Disruption as these industry leaders distinguish between the changes that are temporary reactions of quickly changing circumstances, and the changes that they believe will result in a true paradigm shift for the industry.
