Kathy Taylor of Hauck Homes and George Allen Collaborate on Manufactured Housing Management Certification Course for the first time at SECO18

George Allen has conducted his Manufactured Housing Management Certification course several times each year for decades. The program is the lone land-lease management certification course in the U.S and Canada. It has resulted in the certification of more than a thousand manufactured housing professionals seeking industry guidance.

Taylor and Katie Hauck of Hauck Homes recently completed a well-attended course at the 27th Annual George Allen International Networking Roundtable in Indianapolis.

“We were able to certify 12 MHMs at the Roundtable this year bringing us to around 1,200 certified MHMs to date,” Taylor said. “The class went very well. We had a mixture of very seasoned managers as well as a brand new manager, who spent her first day attending the class.”

Allen and Taylor will lead the Oct. 8 MHM Certification class at SECO18.

Hauck and her husband Ken Hauck operate a dozen manufactured home communities Illinois and Tennessee, and have helped to build on Allen’s curriculum. This is the third year the tandem has led the course.

“George has provided this resource to the industry for a long time, and we’re happy to be able to continue the tradition of preparing managers with a curriculum that draws from decades of experience nationwide,” Katie Hauck said. “Our class attendees find a great amount of value in conversation and resources we’re able to provide. We hope our efforts create a great base of knowledge for the individual who is in the class, and also can translate into a learning experience for their staff and contractors.”

The seven-hour class on manufactured housing management costs $295 and provides the Manufactured Housing Management book, a resource guide and a thumb drive containing all the sample documents used in the class.
