2014 Code Enforcement Program  - Savanah

IMLA Code Enforcement Program will be held January 17-19, 2014 in Savannah, Georgia at the Hilton Savannah Desoto Hotel. .  IMLA's Code Savannah2Enforcement Chair, Karen Blake, is already planning a terrific event. This program is not just for lawyers; IMLA also invite your code officials.  Aside from the educational programs, this event allows attendees to share problems and solutions in a collegial forum and addresses some of the most difficult code enforcement issues we face. 

A Message from IMLA's Executive Director, Chuck Thompson: As we prepare for the holidays and a period when our office is closed, I want to reach out to you and thank you for registering to join us for our Code Enforcement program in Savannah.  We have recently amended the schedule in a way I think you will enjoy:  The tour on Saturday afternoon has been extended to two hours.  The first hour will be in the historic district and the second hour will cover some additional areas of the city to discuss both planning and code enforcement issues pertinent to those areas.  I think you’ll enjoy it.  We expect to be able to drop you off back at the hotel between segments if you don’t want to do the full two hours.  Seats on the tour are limited and if you have not registered already, you may be put on a waiting list. I know I am looking forward to being in Savannah and seeing you.  If you have a favorite restaurant that you don’t want to miss, make reservations early.  If you have any questions, send your concerns to This email address is being protected from spambots.
