MassLandlords has developed an "early warning system" for bills, ordinances, and hearings. This system can alert members and staff to housing-related issues so we can provide timely testimony at hearings. We need your help to make the system work!

This webinar will review Massachusetts housing policy and give a demonstration of the early warning system:

How does an idea become law in the state or a city or town?

Where are public notices posted?

Why did we develop this system?

What does the early warning system do?

Has it made a difference?

Who can participate?

What do I do if I find something?

How do I sign up?

This presentation is timely because the next legislative session begins in January. Help us track the bills that will be filed!

This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association's first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,000 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
