"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 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
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."

"Thank you for an amazing and extremely informative [CPO] seminar last month. I
learned more in the three days with you, than I have in the last eight weeks on
the job. I appreciate the valuable insights you provided and the extra time you
