Retired Sheriff’s Investigator Tony Brahm will present this new and exciting Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) seminar.
This may save your life! With the unfortunate possibility of an active shooter in our midst, there are measures you can take to increase your chances of surviving such an episode. It pays to know the responses that have proven to work in real-life situations. In the past, people were unaware of how to respond in a crisis situation, but that no longer needs to be the case.
DON’T BE A VICTIM – LEARN HOW TO SURVIVE!
Rick Robinson, Manufactured Housing Institute, General Counsel and Senior Vice-President for State & Local Affairs will update attendees on a variety of federal initiatives including Duty to Serve, Dodd-Frank Reform and other federal legislation that has a direct impact on all industry members regardless of which state your business is located in. Rick will present a second program entitled “FAIR HOUSING BASICS THAT COULD COST YOU” which is a must attend session for every community owner throughout the Northeast region.
Rick has spent over three decades in law, government and politics. It was during a stint on Capital Hill as Legislative Director/General Counsel to Rep. Jim Bunning (KY-04) where Robinson first became familiar with the manufactured housing industry. Robinson previously worked as a lawyer for Graydon, Head & Ritchey in Cincinnati, Ohio where he focused his practice mainly on banking and real estate. While at this firm, Robinson also developed a public affairs practice where he earned a reputation for successfully cultivating relationships on both sides of the political aisle.

This program will highlight New York State’s regulatory requirements for manufactured home communities, particularly those requirements that have been receiving heightened scrutiny from New York State regulators. In addition, current legislative and regulatory initiatives affecting manufactured home communities will be discussed.
VP, NYS HCR
Dina Levy, Senior Vice President, Home Ownership and Community Development, NYS Division of Homes and Community Renewal; Dina will discuss the Manufactured Home Advantage Program and the Manufactured Home Community Preservation Program. These brand new funding sources are exciting!
The Manufactured Home Advantage Program offers two ways for community owners and residents to maintain affordable, modern and attractive communities across the state. With a Manufactured Home Community Loan, affordable financing is available for the acquisition and rehabilitation of manufactured home communities. Exciting news if you have an aging infrastructure that needs any rehabilitation! Funding is also available to purchase new parks and refinance existing debt on communities where owners want to increase affordability for residents.
The State of New York Mortgage Agency (SONYMA) is proud to announce that they now offer the same affordable, fixed-rate mortgages that they have been providing to low and moderate income home buyers since 1970 to existing and prospective community residents. This program could help you fill any vacancies you have in your community, so make sure you sit in on this presentation!
