Address: 1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

Judge Andre Gelinas has arranged for a very important presentation on new e-filing process. The Trial Court is working with Tyler Technologies of Plano Texas, developing the new digital court processes for the Massachusetts Court System.

After conducting several pilots, they are in the process of rolling out e-filing to certain departments, with certain case types. All landlords file for things like evictions and small claims and knowing the proper way to handle these matters is important for both landlords and attorneys.

This drive will be worth it! Tyler Technologies Team will be flying in from Texas to present to us since we're so centrally located. So if you're a landlord bring your attorney and if you're an attorney bring your landlord client!

What you don’t know CAN hurt you! Are you one of the majority of landlords accidentally discriminating against transgender people? Have you updated your criminal screening criteria? Join us to learn some little-known screening tips that will remove headaches and liability from your life. We also welcome experienced landlords to share their best screening tip during the member minute! Your good methods will be useful advice for some of your fellow members.

Councilman Moe Bergman will also be joining us to discuss the '4 or more rule' during networking and briefly on stage during the meeting. This law prohibits four or more unrelated people from sharing an apartment. Many properties in Worcester have four or more safe bedrooms that could be rented out but are impeded by this rule.
