"Gwen always presents informative webinars but this [504 Coordination] was exceptional. 504 -vs- Fair Housing requirements has been a gray area for a long time. THANK YOU!"

"My assistant manager and I took the class (AHMA PSW Webinar - "EIV Income Discrepancies: Don't Go Crazy - It's a Tool" today. I just want to say that the instructor (Gwen Volk) was great! Patient and a good teacher. I have been to three seminars (on EIV) with others and this is the first time I understood it completely. Her teaching style is awesome! Thanks to her and AHMA for providing this webinar to us.

"Thank you so much for your helpful webinars [Basic HUD Occupancy Part 1 and 2)! I have worked with LIHTC and Housing Choice Voucher programs for several years but have not worked with other project-based programs, so I was new to all of the deductibles and adjusted income calculations. [The presentation] was extremely clear and easy to follow, and I have a much better understanding of those areas. I learned many new things and am very pleased that I was able to take the class. Thanks again and I look forward to future webinars!"

"I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for being a great instructor on the recent CPO class in Atlanta! I really do not think I would have been able to even understand half of the HUD book without you. So I am sending you a little note to let you know I did pass my exam. Thank you again for for being such a great instructor and such a trailblazer in the HUD world."

"[LIHTC Non-Compliance: How it Happens-How to Repair] was one of the most informative and educational seminar-webinar I have attended thus far in 14 years. Our compliance department has never taught the curriculum that was presented yesterday. I guess they feel that we should never make a mistake. Now we know better. 99% is fixable."

"Gwen Volk is one of the nation's leading experts in affordable housing issues and compliance. We work in a complicated multi-layered subsidy environment and engaged her to identify and correct any compliance issues in our policies and procedures. Her approach was comprehensive, and the result exceeded expectations. We can recommend Gwen without reservation."

"In the past year, I have been privileged to attend several of Gwen's trainings
  • LIHTC class
  • Fair Housing
  • Managing Combined Funding Properties
  • Understanding HOME
Her knowledge and training skills have prepared myself and staff I supervise to enter the world of Tax Credit and HOME programs. She makes it all so understandable and takes all of the fear, stress and worry out of how to work with these funding sources. I had gone to two other national training classes on LIHTC, but gained so much more knowledge from Gwen classes, that made it all fit together for me. Whenever possible, I like all of my staff to train with Gwen, as then I know they are taught the most current policies and practices and that Gwen's teaching will keep them engaged in the learning process."
