The 2012 National Congress & Expo for Manufactured and Modular Housing will be held April 10-12, 2012 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. HK&C partners, Rob Coldren and Bill Dahlin will be returning again this year to present at this national trade show created specifically for the factory build housing industry and considered to be the largest gathering of industry leaders.
Both partners have been asked to participate in two educational programs:
Tuesday, April 10, 1:30 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. “Key Legal Issues for Communities”
Find out about the simple steps you can take now to protect your community from potential legal liability problems as panelists provide guidance on a number of key community legal issues. Come join this session to get answers to your most pressing questions.
Thursday, April 12, 11:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. “Fair Housing/2012″
Presented by Rob Coldren and Bill Dahlin of HK&C, this workshop will cover the changing landscape of Fair Housing rules and enforcement faced by manufactured housing communities today. Changing a manufactured housing community from “55 and older” to “all age” is a critical and ongoing compliance and “cost of doing business” concern. Come hear the experts discuss the pros and cons of keeping or changing a communities “age based” designation and the questions you should consider. We will also cover issues presented by “testers” and what can be viewed as housing discrimination. Learn about and explore the overlap and distinctions between ADA and Fair Housing compliance for the manufactured housing industry and short-term rental RV parks which are increasingly facing issues that were traditionally long-term residency issues.
