On Wednesday, December 15, 2004, the Management Bureau of the Division of Housing and Community Renewal will be presenting the ninth and last Workshop on the revised HUD Handbook 4350.3.

Our guest speaker at this Workshop will be William A. Miecuna, Coordinator of HUD's Neighborhood Network Program. Neighborhood Networks is a HUD community based program that encourages the development of community technology centers in privately owned HUD insured and assisted housing. Mr. Miecuna will demonstrate how housing managers can use these centers to help their residents gain access to critical resources, such as computer technology, educational programs, job training and other social services, in order to promote economic self-sufficiency.

The workshop will be held at the Division of Housing and Community Renewal, 25 Beaver Street, New York City, room 510, from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. In order to attend, you must register. Please complete the attached registration form and FAX it to Betty Mullins at (212) 480-7270 by December 10, 2004, or e-mail her at
