Professional vendors can support successful operations to create and maintain sustainable and affordable communities, and ROC USA is launching a five-week Ask the Experts series to show how.

Amy Chhom, Vice President for Real Estate Operational Solutions at ROC USA, is spearheading the series, which focuses on a wide range of topics, including:

  • Permitting and approvals
  • Construction management
  • Infill and site development
  • Infrastructure
  • Home renovations
  • Spanish-speaking support services

This five-week virtual series provides residents, Technical Assistance Providers and property managers an opportunity to meet with national manufactured housing experts about how services offered by their companies can support a ROC’s success. It is free and open to everyone. Please register here.

“We created this informational series to remind everyone that there are resources out there to help create community efficiencies that can free up the time of a Board and a TA to do all of the other work they need to do,” Chhom said.  

She added that sometimes spending a little more money on the right vendors can save time and effort for community leaders and TA Providers, helping ease strain and burnout. They can also get projects done more quickly, saving money in the long term, for example, with fewer emergency or band-aid repairs.

“Being a Board Member should not be a full-time job,” Chhom said.

The series begins at 3 p.m. Eastern, June 11, with Anequim, an Omaha, Neb., based company that connects entrepreneurs, property managers and small- to mid-size businesses with bilingual virtual assistants who can support administrative, accounting and marketing needs.

The series continues Tuesdays throughout June and July. All sessions are held at 3 p.m. Eastern and are one-hour long except the last session on July 16, which is 90 minutes. Please see the full list of future dates, topics and vendors below.
