The Northeast Super Symposium
was a HUGE Success!
The 2017 Northeast Super Symposium VI held on April 12 & 13 at The Desmond Hotel in Albany was a huge success. Over 100 industry members from every state in the Northeast gathered in Albany on Wednesday and Thursday. This was a new location for this meeting and our surroundings were impressive.
To kick start Wednesday morning, Rick Robinson, Vice President and General Counsel for the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) presented the National Legislative & Regulatory Update, bringing all the latest information on activities at the federal level. George Allen, GFA Management, presented State of the Industry & Community Asset Class, which was extremely informative. Marc Lifset, Esq. and Jeffrey Barringer, Esq. presented Enterprise Duty to Serve & Other Lending Issues. Their talk was full of important information for all members of the manufactured housing industry. In the afternoon, Rick Robinson presented Fair Housing 2017 and covered a great deal of timely topics. The last presenter of the day was Ken Corbin from CallKenCorbin.com, who presented Selling More Homes and Filling Your Community. This lively presentation offered unique and innovative ideas for community owners and managers and was very well received.
On Thursday, Dr. David Funk presented Data Driven Strategies for Understanding Manufactured Housing’s Market Opportunities. This fact filled presentation was well received by all in attendance.
