As the year-end holidays approach, multifamily professionals are once again confronted with requests for clubhouse use, decoration planning, and how to answer the most common questions of the season in general without appearing to be the Grinch! Is it OK to have a Christmas tree in the office? What about a menorah? What should my holiday greeting be? Is it OK to have a “Secret Santa” office party? Can I let the folks in building 12 use the clubhouse for a midnight prayer meeting on Christmas Eve? Can I limit what decorations residents display in their windows? What holidays must I observe? Is there a Santa Claus? Join us for the answers to these questions (well, except that last one) and more so you and your team  are ready to master Fair Housing compliance without sacrificing any holiday spirit!
