Fair Housing Training: Bowling Green, April 14, 2016 - Bowling Green, KY
Wagons west, housing providers, as this year’s FHM fair housing training will be at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. This is an opportunity for any and all Kentucky-based individuals involved in the housing industry – landlords, property managers, leasing agents, maintenance workers, real estate agents, etc. – to come learn about their rights and responsibilities under federal, state, and local housing law. Seating is limited, so please register as soon as you know you’ll be attending. Additionally, if you are a member of a group that will be attending (e.g., a property management company), we ask that each individual employee register separately (just so we have a clearer estimate about how many individual attendees to expect).
