Center Executive Director Brenda Konkel said the presentations are open to all individuals, agencies and businesses involved in rental housing, including landlords, property managers, caseworkers, advocates, lawyers and police.
Attendees will learn about the laws and issues that arise in rental housing, with a focus on any recent changes in state law. Participants will receive a set of the center's informational brochures, along with a packet of training handouts and a housing counselor training guide.
The seminars, which cost $125 with pre-registration or $145 without, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a lunch break. Three or more people from the same agency can pre-register for $100 per person.
