Ellinger & Carr Speaking on Social Media, Housing Authority Issues at PHADA National Conference, San Diego

PHADA logoSusan Ellinger and Steven Carr will be featured speakers and presenters on management and legal issues of concern to executive directors of public housing authorities at their upcoming national conference in San Diego in January 2013.

The social and cultural phenomenon of ubiquitous social media has prompted housing authorities and most employers to develop and adopt social media policies to address the use and effects of social media and networking on employee productivity and to mitigate the risks of the employers’ liability.  Ms. Ellinger and Mr. Carr will speak on the social networking session: “What’s Your ‘Status’?  Is Your Social Media Policy Working and Protecting You from Liability?”

A second session will focus on risks and liabilities of tax credit developments, and Ms. Ellinger and Mr. Carr will present a primer and update on low income housing tax credits issues, including an overview of housing authority affiliates, joint ventures and how to protect the Board and executive directors from liabilities and risks frequently encountered in these transactions.  The program is titled:  “Partnerships 101: Top 10 Tips for Successful Community Development Joint Ventures.”

The Ellinger Carr law firm represents housing authorities and their non-profit community development corporations and other non-profit and for-profit developers in affordable housing and mixed finance housing projects in the Southeast and elsewhere in the United States.
