Northeast Super Symposium VIII

An Outstanding Event!

The 2019 Northeast Super Symposium VIII held on April 17 & 18 at the Rivers Resort & Casino in Schenectady was a huge success. Industry members were treated to two days of informative and timely educational sessions. This was the second year at the Rivers Resort & Casino and our surroundings continue to impress.

Wednesday morning had retired Columbia County Sheriff’s investigator Tony Brahm present the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE). Tony’s session took up the entire morning and was very well received. Not one attendee left the room during the presentation and the comments after were very positive. Everyone took back invaluable information for their business.

Jaime Cain, ESQ from Boylan Code followed up after lunch with “Fair Housing Games.” Jaime’s presentation was fun, fast-paced and generated many questions. We had the pleasure of hearing from Dina Levy, Senior Vice-President, Homeownership and Community Development, NYS Division of Homes and Community Renewal about updates to both the Manufactured Home Advantage Program and the Manufactured Home Community Preservation Program. 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 to all attendees.

On Thursday, John Copelletti and John Jacon from our very own New York State HUD code builder, Titan Homes, provided us with updates on manufacturing trends, statistics and new innovations in manufactured housing. Great job John and John! Later that morning, Mark Glaser, Esq. of Greenberg Traurig along with his colleague Lynelle Bosworth, Esq., and Joel Harper of MHC Consultants, LLC discussed current community trends. Thank you to NYHA Secretary Steve Hoffman for serving as Master of Ceremonies.
