Landlord Symposium - April 22 & 23

On February 5, 2024 I started my tenure as Director of Housing Programs (Section 8/ Housing Choice Vouchers). I relocated to the area from Houston, TX.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite landlords and property owners to our Landlord Symposium later this month. The theme of the symposium is “WE HOUSE PEOPLE”. We are hosting the symposium to discuss the issues facing landlords and potential landlords and the ways we can improve our services.
There will be two opportunities you will have to attend. On April 22, 2024, from 10AM to 4PM, we will be at Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey. On April 23, 2024, we will have the same information disseminated, but this time it will be in Seaside at Deja Blue from 10AM to 4PM. We hope you attend at least one of the sessions.
If you have any questions you can reach out to me directly at 831.775.5040 or jcampbell@hamonterey.org. Attached is the flyer for the event.
