Past seminars have included topics from a wide variety of subjects including “How to Use a Financial Calculator,” “How to Negotiate Deals,” “Tax Strategies,” “Landlord-Tenant Relationships,” “Buying and Selling Mobile Homes” and many others. The information you gain from a single seminar can be worth your whole membership fee - and more! Members receive a discount.
