August 24, 2023 Membership Luncheon

"Kill Two Birds with One Luncheon Meeting!" 
We know you're busy and it's hard to get away for a breakfast and luncheon meeting each month.  Beginning next month MVNARI will be combining the two meetings and having two speakers at the August 24th membership luncheon meeting.  It's a great way to hear important information that is relevant to your business at a fraction of the cost!
Our first speaker is Brian Schlosser, CPA is the founder and President of Schlosser Financial Planning (SFP), a private wealth management firm located in Cincinnati.  Brian's business experience spans 21 years in the areas of commercial banking, public accounting, insurance, private wealth management, and entrepreneurial wealth management.  In 2004, Brian opened Schlosser Financial Planning, a private wealth management firm focused on serving the unique needs of entrepreneurs and their extended families.  SFP provides comprehensive wealth management services in the areas of business and personal financial planning, risk management, retirement planning, business succession and estate planning. 
Brian's talk is on Leading Your Business into Retirement.  Sales lead times are long.  Competitors are bidding jobs with no margin.  Overall demand for your service is down.  Customers are paying late.  Suppliers are not extending credit.  We could go on all day.  Times are tough.  Retirement?  Are you kidding?
Now is the time to rebuild your business from the ground up.  This session will discuss practical steps on how to lead your business and your people to your goal of financial security and success.  
Our second speaker is Bill Bankes, who graduated from UC as an Industrial Engineer and later received his MBA from The University of Dayton in 1999.
Bill has worked as an Industrial Engineer at Monsanto Research and Co-Op at Corporate Kroger's.

These uses include exterior insulation and finishing systems (EIFS/Stucco), interior and exterior products, amusement park and trade show displays, concrete forms, monument signs, events, insulation and packaging.
The luncheon will take place at the Ramada Plaza North, 2301 Wagner Ford Road.

RRP Certification Does Not Allow You to Work on HUD Projects!

Representatives from HUD attended and participated in the workshop NARI attended, and HUD wants all RRP renovators to understand that RRP training does not qualify you for HUD work. HUD requirements are much more stringent and are similar to Abatement requirements. Contractors wishing to perform HUD work must complete a HUD approved training program and certification process.
State by State
The EPA's sole strategy for improving outreach and enforcement is centered on delegating authority to individual states and is providing small grants to implement this transition. For most states this means that legislation must first be proposed and approved to authorize some state agency to regulate the rule and provide funding for the state program. 
Funding seems to be the big obstacle keeping states from taking on the regulation although some states see this as an opportunity for a revenue stream and plan on making money from registrations and fines! As the state takes over the program, that $37,500 maximum fine now switches over to the state for collection. Watch out as states start to see dollar signs!
NARI will be monitoring this state by state and will work with local NARI chapters to make sure this delegation takes place for the right reasons.
To date nine states have been delegated responsibility for RRP programs, some of these mirror EPA regulations, some have imposed more stringent requirements.
States that are now approved are:
Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah and Wisconsin
Co-author Shawn McCadden has been quite involved in and has been following the RRP Rule in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Department of Occupational Security (DOS) took over enforcement and administration of the rule on July 9, 2010.   The Massachusetts rule is very similar to the EPA rule. However, the MA rule also includes many of the OSHA related requirements that contractors are already responsible for and that are missing and/or in some cases are impossible to comply with if following the EPA rule. In Massachusetts renovators are required to provide a written respirator program at the time of applying for a Lead-Safe Renovation Contractor license for their firm, must have a licensed Lead-Safe Renovation Supervisor (same as a certified renovator) on the jobsite at all times while employees work under containment and are also required to keep a log documenting when all workers enter and exit the contained work area.
Massachusetts has already started enforcing the rule. So far, unless violations are extreme, the DOS is warning and assisting those contractors who are operating in violation of the rule, giving them an ultimatum to apply for certification and take the required training within a specified and limited time frame. DOS will be following up with these individuals to confirm compliance. Fines in Massachusetts are up to $5000/day per violation. In mid July in Belmont Massachusetts, over 30 renovators and the general contractor on one large remodeling project were found to be in violation. Many other contractors have also been visited by DOS.
In region 3 NY, NJ, WV, and PA have no plans for delegation. Virginia has approved the legislation and is in the process of rulemaking.  Maryland and Delaware have begun the legislative process but are stuck in legislature.
NARI is interested in the progress other states are taking to delegate the RRP to themselves and is complying a database of state information.  If you are knowledgeable about what your state is doing we would appreciate your help and request that you email the GAC with pertinent information.
Market Yourself as an Approved 203(k) Contractor
By Morgan Zenner

Though the economy continues to improve, businesses are still moving cautiously-especially banks and lenders. Financing and credit lines are still hard to come by, and those that are available come with high rates and high scrutiny.  
Reduced credit options make financing major home remodels very difficult for homeowners, which lessens the job prospects for remodelers. You may have heard about the Federal Housing Administration's (FHA) 203(k) renovation loan program in the past and brushed it off to be smaller-scale work. However, with foreclosure rates soaring and deferred maintenance of older homes becoming more common, there may be some lucrative opportunities lurking behind this federal government loan program.
