Less Than 1 Month Left Until Landlord Boot Camp on October 7, 2017

Posted by Tristan R. Pettit, Esq. in Seminars, Landlord Boot Camp / Comments

Hello Everyone –

There is less than 1 month left until the next Landlord Boot Camp which is scheduled for October 7, 2017. I hope to see many of you there.

One new topic that we will be addressing is e-filing your evictions and collection lawsuits. E-filing has been required for most Wisconsin counties for several months now and it is now required in Milwaukee County as well as of September 1st.

If you have never had to e-file your eviction or collection lawsuit – do not worry, by the end of Boot Camp you will be a pro.

To sign up now you can call or email Kathy at (414) 276-7378 or membership@AASEW.org or sign up online at www.LandlordBootCamp2017.com

Below are more details about the event.
