Fair Housing Update: Know YOUR Rights and Avoid Costly Mistakes in Today’s Political Climate – Featuring Property Management Expert, Angel Rogers

As housing providers, we must always ensure that our buildings and apartment communities are open and welcoming to people of all types.  As housing providers, we are intertwined with and are committed to the principles set forth in the Fair Housing Act, which is based on the concept that all people should be treated equally.  Join us online for a LIVE for this important webinar and Q&A session with Property Management Training and Education Expert, Angel Rogers, Founder of STAR Training for this Fair Housing Update and learn how the current political climate may have altered fair housing rules and how YOU can avoid making potentially costly mistakes.

PLEASE, join us for what will most certainly be an informative webinar.  Join us for a live discussion of the latest issues and protocols surrounding COVID-19 and lessons learned during the pandemic.  During the webinar, we will also cover the following:
