Our conference will be better than ever in 2010. Thanks to the Idaho Affordable Housing Management Association (IdahoAHMA), this year’s fair housing event will take place at the start of the 2010 Idaho AHMA conference in Boise’s Doubletree Riverside Hotel and Conference Center.

We anticipate great interest in this year’s sessions and focus area, and encourage anyone interested in their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act to attend, from executives and elected officials to housing industry professionals and their counsel, to advocates and the general public.

Michael Allen
We are privileged this year to have prominent Civil Rights Attorney Michael Allen as a featured presenter. Formerly with the Bazelon Center, Mr. Allen currently serves as counsel for Rehlman and Dane, LLC. A nationally recognized expert on civil and disability rights law, he was instrumental in the groundbreaking $62.5M settlement against Westchester County, NY. Mr. Allen will present an overview of the Westchester case and its impact on recipients of federal funds, as well as a separate session on Reasonable Accommodation and Reasonable Modification. A more complete biography of Mr. Allen is available below. Mr. Allen’s visit to Idaho is made possible by the Intermountain Fair Housing Council.

Esteemed legal panelists
We are also honored to host a lunchtime panel discussion of current Fair Housing issues in Idaho featuring Idaho’s new U.S. Attorney (invited, pending confirmation), along with the Hon. Candy W. Dale of the U.S. District Court, and prominent attorneys representing fair housing enforcement and civil rights defense for housing providers.

Sample Special Interest Sessions

  • Fair Housing Basics
  • Reasonable Accommodation and Modification
  • Affirmative Marketing
  • Limited English Proficiency

The Idaho Fair Housing Forum is open to all housing and community stakeholders. We are not an advocacy organization, but rather seek to offer solution-oriented conversation and cooperation among fair housing and consumer advocates, housing industry professionals, government, and nonprofit service providers.
