Education

At Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC we believe that a well-informed board of directors is better prepared to govern its association and to protect the association from both preventable membership discord and litigation. In addition to our annual Legal Symposia, we offer multiple other educational services, including seminars for boards of directors and community association managers.

A partial list of recent Epsten Grinnell & Howell attorney-led seminars include:
