Ricardo L. Gilmore, senior partner and co-founder of Saxon, Gilmore, Carraway & Gibbons, P.A. was a co-presenter at the Housing and Development Law Institute’s (HDLI) 2013 Fall CLE Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. The event was held on October 25, 2013.
Mr. Gilmore co-presented a session entitled “Exploring Executive Director Compensation – within the framework of state and federal standards”. Participants engaged in a frank discussion on the new nationwide rules and restrictions concerning public housing executive director compensation.
The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) 2013 National Conference & Exhibition ran concurrently with the HDLI conference. Mr. Gilmore not only shared his expertise with fellow housing authority practitioners, but took advantage of both organizations’ networking and training opportunities.
The NAHRO conference provided an opportunity for housing and community development policy-makers and practitioners to learn how public, private, and nonprofit groups are overcoming the barriers caused by reduced federal funding.
The NAHRO conference included seminars such as Ethics for the Housing and Community Development Commissioner, Managing Public Housing Funding, Affordable Care Act, Safety and Security, Renewable Energy Products, and Community Collaborations to End Chronic Homelessness.
