Events

Training Updates:

Staying engaged and informed is extremely important, and we connect everyone in our industry to the tools and resources they need to succeed. Every year we host a Conference & Expo in Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada. Your safety is a top priority and therefore all scheduled Conference and Expos were cancelled for 2020.

We look forward to planning and seeing everyone at the annual Conference and Expo’s in 2021. These events will offer updates in the housing industry, legislative changes, latest training topics, Vendor Expos, and more.

Check back for updates. More education details can be accessed on the NAHMA website. If you have questions or need more information, email training@ahma-psw.org or call our team at 866.698.AHMA (2462).
