Turn your building into a power plant and add another revenue stream. We'll teach you how to avoid bad solar leasing deals by financing your own panels and getting a new roof in the process.

If you go solar soon, you will still be eligible for the valuable SREC tax credit, which we'll explain. Plus we'll show you how going solar and then including electrical and heat in the rent can leave you with a premium over market rates. This is an extremely valuable presentation for everyone looking to invest. Your existing property may be your best opportunity! Or find untapped potential in a new purchase.

This presentation will be interview-style with Rich Merlino, our Worcester emcee, asking tough questions of Aaron Simms, General Manager of Sunbug Solar.

The state sanitary code is changing. In late 2017 DPH proposed amendments that will invalidate many of our apartments and entire buildings. Will these changes all take effect, or was public comment too intense?

Even without the changes, most apartments in older buildings fail the state sanitary code. This leaves it open as a weapon against landlords during evictions and other tough tenant situations. We'll be reviewing the top ten things landlords get wrong under the current code, and discussing the prospects for the proposed changes.

This presentation will be presentation-style with Lee Hall, Chief Sanitary Inspector of the City of Worcester, and committed researcher. Lee has a Master's Degree in Non-Profit/Public/Organizational Management and polled MassLandlords Worcester members as part of her thesis work.

Have you seen our Leave Stuff, Take Stuff Table?

We encourage everyone to bring materials in to share! You're welcome to bring things like: business cards, brochures, items that could have a second life with someone who needs them, etc. The only catch is that we don't have storage at the school, so the registration desk staff usually throw away what's not taken at the end of the night. So we ask that you bring things in limited quantities as not to waste.
