We happen to agree. For those in the MHC world who are within a day’s drive or flight of Louisville, KY, if you want great insights from real-world veterans who know how to get the job in MHCs done!

Last year it was Standing Room Only (SRO) at most of our Business Building Seminars at the 2014 Louisville Show. This was one of those packed room sessions!  Ross_Kinzler_credit_Community_Connections_posted_on_MHProNews
