Please note: Due the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, AHMA East Texas has made the decision to hold webinars for the remainder of 2020. We will consider live meetings when the time is optimal and we have a colcation to meet. We also understand the difficult for some to pay befroe the webinar due to accounting policies. For logistical reasons we highly prefer that you pay for webinars with a credit card. When that is not possible, please let us know in the registration form comment box when we can expect a check. Webinar substitutions can be made 3 days before the class at no cost, with a new email address. (Individual email addresses are required for all participants). Cancellations must be made 5 days prior to the class and a $25 service fee will be applied.

You will learn how to avoid Fair Housing inconsistencies and pitfalls that are often unintentionally included in advertising, as well as the connection between the Violence Against Woman Act (VAWA) and fair housing.
