Elected officials, city managers, building department staff and other government professionals working to revitalize economically depressed areas or rehabilitate older buildings in their communities will find the International Code Council Property Maintenance and Housing Institute to be a valuable educational opportunity.
Participants in the institute will learn current methods to improve their jurisdictions through community partnerships, proper code enforcement, and successful court action. Co-sponsored by the American Association of Code Enforcement, the Property Maintenance and Housing Institute includes panel discussions with industry experts who will share their insight into property maintenance code administration, program challenges, and strategies for success.
The Property Maintenance and Housing Institute, August 28-29 in Liverpool, N.Y., offers housing inspectors, code officials and building department administrators an opportunity to increase knowledge, skills and abilities to protect public health, safety and welfare related to occupancy and maintenance of homes, buildings and land. Well-maintained residential and commercial structures safeguard residents and enhance the economic vitality of a community.
In addition to education offered by code enforcement professionals, the Property Maintenance and Housing Institute allows attendees to interact, network and share experiences with their peers. Participants in the institute can earn continuing education units (CEUs) and learning units (LUs).
