Under Section 700.21-a of the Laws of Westchester County, all board members of housing cooperatives are required to undergo a minimum of two hours of fair housing training every two years. Since the law is new this year, existing board members have 9 months in which to undergo their initial training (by May 1, 2022) while incoming board members will have to be trained within 60 days of taking their position on the board.

The next 2 sessions will take place on Zoom (webinar-based) on: 
Monday, June 6th
Wednesday, July 20th

The training is free for any member of a board of directors whose co-op is a dues-paying member of the CCAC. If you are not sure if your housing co-op is a member of the CCAC, email us or call the BRI office at 914-273-0730.
