“Practical Fair Housing in the 21st Century”
A focus on Maintenance Professionals

Presented by Amanda Gross, Zeffert & Associates

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
8:30 (Registration) 9 – Noon (Fair Housing Seminar)

Good maintenance professionals are crucial to the smooth-running of a multi-family housing property. Besides the unique opportunity to contribute to the success of the housing, they also have considerable challenges and risks as they interact in a profound way with the public and residents of the housing. Both maintenance personnel and those above them in the chain of command bear serious liability under fair housing law.

What fair housing basics do all housing professionals need to know? What specific fair housing pitfalls and opportunities exist for maintenance staff? What policies and procedures can keep them safe?

These questions and more will be discussed in this training which is based on years of practical experience as well as HUD and DOJ guidance.

Attendees will also receive a course manual and certificate of attendance!

Deadline to register is Wednesday, December 3rd
