The Value of Attending the Webinar
ITGA’s housing webinar hit home for the Town of Amherst. With over a dozen Town officials (appointed and elected) registered, the webinar clearly struck a chord. We appreciated the opportunity to join other communities in addressing the challenges of housing in a college community.”
