Zeffert & Associates will offer a six-hour seminar that is especially geared towards property owners, managers, site personnel, maintenance technicians, and anyone who provides services to the multifamily housing industry.  Investing the money in training yourself and your staff will be money well spent when compared to the potential costs of not understanding fair housing obligations.
