2012 Convention a Huge Success!

Congratulations are in order for everyone who attended the New York Housing Association’s 62nd Annual Convention in Verona, NY at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino.  The convention was from October 25th – 26th, 2012 and was described as a huge success!

These two days were filled with informative seminars, inspiring speakers and a trade expo that was industry specific.  The master of the ceremony was Jim Freyer, Jr. who is the CEO of Haylor, Freyer & Coon and spoke to the attendees and even introduced President Joel Harper who spoke about his experiences over the past year.  Jason Boehlert also spoke on such issues as Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Act, the SAFE Act, the Consumer Protection Credit Bureau and much more.

Some examples of other presentations included:

  • 20 Easy Marketing Ideas that Won’t Break the Bank (by Beth Monicatti-Blank)
  • Recent updates to the NYS Building & Energy Codes (by Brian Tollisen)
  • Valuation & Appraisal of Manufactured Homes (Sherrie Clevenger)
  • Measuring Consumer Satisfaction & Customer Loyalty (Joe Adams)

The NYHA had their annual meeting, members elected the officers for 2013 and the 2013 budget was approved.  Susan Underwood spoke about loan programs and there was a panel presentation following which discussed a variety of lending programs.

Thank you to all who attended and we hope you had a great time!

MHI’s 2012 Annual Meeting!

MHI’s 2012 Annual Meeting will be held at the Hotel Contessa in San Antonio, TX on October 7-9, 2012. Click here to register now and save $100. The early-bird hotel and registration fee deadline is September 7th which is coming up soon.

MHI has been working long and hard to hopefully amend the SAFE and Dodd-Frank Acts.  The laws, “threaten to limit the ability of consumers to obtain mortgage financing for manufactured homes and the ability of manufactured home retailers and sellers to provide home-buyers with adequate information to make an informed purchase decision or provide basic information about available lending options.”

Thankfully, progress has been made by the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act, (S. 3484 and H.R. 3849), in the Senate and House of Representatives.  At the Annual Meeting there will be continued work on MHI’s priorities that which include a strategy to pass S. 3484 and H.R. 3849, CFPB regulatory implementation of Dodd-Frank and SAFE Acts; GSE reform and the government’s role in housing; and energy issues.

This year’s highlights include:

  • Initiatives & issues discussions on the recent legislation
  • Featured speakers
  • Information on the upcoming elections and health care reform
  • Special awards presentations, and so much more!
