Events

Staying engaged and informed is extremely important, and we make an effort to connect everyone in our industry to the tools and resources they need to succeed. Every year we host a conference in each state we represent: California, Arizona, and Nevada. These annual meetings offer updates in the housing industry, legislative changes, market conditions and more. It also offers a chance to collaborate with everyone in our network, putting faces to names and meeting like-minded individuals who want to make housing better for everyone.

FHC – Certified Course

  • March 14, 2019 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

The requirements set forth in the Fair Housing Act and Section 504 regulations are enormously complex and far-reaching.  NAHMA’s Fair Housing Compliance (FHC) course trains managers to understand these complex regulations, and provides clear instructions on fair housing laws.  The comprehensive, practical training manual for this course includes ready-to-use documents and forms to conduct a Section 504 Self-Evaluation and sample Transition Plan.

The course teaches a step-by-step approach to determining the administrative and financial feasibility of making units accessible.  Not only does NAHMA’s Fair Housing course cover the application process, which includes screening, accepting, and rejecting applicants, it also presents instructions on developing company-wide policies and procedures.

The Fair Housing Compliance is a required course for NAHMA’s NAHP certification program.  All participants who complete the course will be given a voucher number to take the online exam at their location of choice.  Students are notified immediately of their test results upon completion of the exam.

WEBINAR: Service Program on a Shoestring!

  • March 27, 2019 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Not everyone is lucky enough to have professional service coordinator on staff. Nor can all properties afford to hire an outside service contractor to coordinate their activities. Tax credit properties and bond properties generally come with a requirement for programs to enrich the quality of life of residents but generally do not have budgets that provide much to invest in such things. Take it from someone whose properties won two national awards- largely for their outstanding service programs – without benefit of large budgets or professional service coordination: You too can do quality programs on a shoestring. BONUS:  Participants will receive access to Gwen’s “Best Ideas List” with more than 500 no-cost, low-cost programs and activities proven to be successful by your fellow affordable housing managers nationwide.

SPEAKER: Gwen Volk

Working with Advance EIV

  • April 9, 2019 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Working with Advance EIV

EIV is a great tool to help us identify improper payments and streamline the verification process.  It is also very time consuming, and a major cause of MOR findings.  This is a full day course designed to help you effectively and efficiently use EIV as the tool it was meant to be.  We will cover tips and tricks to make EIV use go smoothly, as well as identifying the source of discrepancies.  In addition, we will spend the majority of the day doing hands on exercises to reconcile the EIV Income Discrepancy Report, use the EIV Quarterly Wage Report to identify potential overpayments and use third party verification to compute overpayments.  We will also work through repayment agreement processing and reporting.

Fair Housing for Maintenance

  • April 25, 2019 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Make sure everyone on your team receives up -to the-minute fair housing training!

Residents deal with the office at the beginning of the tenancy, but after moving on-site, maintenance usually has more exposure to residents and their problems on an on-going basis. 80% of FH cases come from in place residents! Cases are filed based on poor service but also on inconsistent service (including being too nice and showing a preference for some residents), lack of communication or saying the wrong thing… innocently!

What you don’t know can cost you, your property and your company money.
