Welcome to the Akron Canton REIA

A/CREIA General Monthly Meetings –  on 2nd Wednesday of the month starting at 7pm

November 11, 2015

Featured Speaker:

Mary Raitano and Cindy Munford

Worried about the current or future rental situation in Akron, OH? Wondering how to locate tenants to fill your rentals?  Come to our November meeting as we welcome our speakers, Mary Raitano and Cindy Munford from the International Institute. Mary is the Director of Refugee Resettlement and she will give an overview on what they do at the Institute. Mary will address where immigrants and refugees come from, whose next, how many we expect to come to the Akron area, types of services they provide, etc. In addition, she will discuss the process on how the U. S. Govt. evaluates who can come, how they screen, and why it takes sometimes years to come to the U.S..

Also, we will hear from Cindy Munford who is the Refugee Resettlement Specialist/Housing Coordinator who will address their housing needs and what their guidelines are when seeking housing for new arrivals.

In addition,  join us for a pizza Benefit for 1851 Center for Constitutional Law. As you know, the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law recently won a huge case in Portsmouth, OH finding Landlord Registration and Inspections unconstitutional. To support further legal work in this fight, which benefits all landlords, ACREIA will host a pizza fundraiser at our November monthly meeting.

Arrive at 6:30 pm, and for a $10 donation you can eat delicious pizza, and help 1851 Center For Constitutional Law help you!

So make sure you come early because you won’t want to miss either one of these speakers or the networking opportunity!
