Pre-conference training: October 16 and 17, 2023
Conference: October 18 and 19, 2023

We are excited to host our Fall Conference at 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel in Clayton, NY.

Pre-conference Training – October 16 & 17, 2023

The conference will kick off with a Pre-Conference Training October 16 and 17. A continuation of the Fair Housing Training from the 2023 Spring Conference, Jaime Cain will discuss and evaluate Fair Housing Case Studies. Housing Authorities are now required to train their staff in Fair Housing. This is a great way to meet that requirement and receive a top-notch training. Members and non-members can register for the training AND conference, to receive a $50 discount.
