The 2018 Northeast Super Symposium VII held on April 11 & 12 at The Rivers Resort & Casino in Schenectady was a huge success. Nearly 100 industry members from every state in the Northeast gathered in the electric city on Wednesday and Thursday. This was a new location for the Symposium 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. Joe Adams from the Housing Marketplace presented a Foundations of Management seminar that was extremely educational and lively. In the afternoon, Mark Conte of Conte Manufactured Housing Compliance Services presented Retailer Responsibilities and Opportunities Under the HUD Installation Program. Michael Halter from Haylor, Freyer & Coon presented How OSHA’s New Regulation
Affect You. Rick Robinson presented Fair Housing Basics That Could Cost You and covered a great deal of timely topics.

On Thursday, Joe Adams did a second presentation entitled Mistakes Managers Make. If you have never heard Joe speak, you are missing out! He is informed, lively and entertaining, and has valuable information to teach you. Mark Glaser, Esq. of Greenberg Traurig presented Reasonable Accommodations & ADA Compliance later that morning.
