Another Successful Seminar for NY Metro

The annual New York Metro ASHI educational seminar was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in White Plains on Sept. 10-11 this year. The organizing committee of Doug Kaufman, Bart Rodi, Victor G. Fagella and Cox Award winner Victor J. Fagella performed yeoman service through the year of preparation to ensure NY Metro Seminar’s reputation as an outstanding educational value for inspection and real estate professionals in the region.

Among the timely topics covered were synthetic slate and photo-voltaic roofing, deck inspection, tankless water heaters, basement finishing systems and saving energy at home. An evening seminar on Connecticut law also was offered.
