CONTINUING EDUCATION ENDORSED BY NY STATE BOARD FOR ARCHITECTURE

The Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC) has been approved as a sponsor of Continuing Education by the Board for Architecture at the New York State Education Department.

The FHJC is sponsoring the free workshop, entitled Accessible Housing: A Civil Right. to increase awareness of accessibility laws and regulations, and to help ensure that new buildings are designed and constructed correctly right from the start. Architects, builders, contractors, building engineers, real estate professionals, attorneys, government officials, disability rights advocates, and others will be provided with detailed and reliable information about federal fair housing accessibility requirements.

Instruction at the workshop will be provided by two nationally known experts on housing accessibility: Attorney Scott Moore, a partner with the law firm of Baird Holm LLP in Omaha; and Larry Fleming, an architect and consultant on accessibility issues with E&A Team, Inc. in Tuscaloosa.

The workshop is being offered Friday June 11 and again on Thursday July 14. There is no fee to attend, but advanced registration is required. Registration deadlines are June 8 and July 11. Click HERE to learn more and to register.
