Online Continuing Education

MHISC is hosting our first-ever online continuing education course on February 25th from 10:00am-11:00am. Registration is $35 per participant.

Log on and join us as we present 15 Fabulous Facts about Manufactured Housing for one hour of CE credit. This course overviews general facts from all aspects of the manufactured home industry.

These facts help participants learn more about areas of the industry they may not be familiar with, and can also be used in marketing materials.

All participants must have a computer and a reliable internet connection. Register online at the link below.

Transportation Policy Change

MHISC has been working with officials from the SC Department of Transportation to improve rules in the industry.

The maximum length for annual permits has been changed from 100 feet to 110 feet. This is measured from the front bumper to the back of the load.

According to DOT officials, this change is effective immediately but it may take some time for the website to reflect the update because a software change is required.

However, DOT personnel in the Oversize-Overweight Office have been made aware of the policy change.

It should be noted that, according to DOT officials, this new length includes no “divisible load” restrictions.

Formaldehyde Notice Change

The requirement that manufactured homes display a formaldehyde health notice is coming to an end. The rule will end in early March.

Full details haven’t been announced by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the agency that regulates manufactured home production. One question is whether the change will apply only to homes built after that time or to homes already at retail centers.

The industry has long opposed the requirement as discriminatory and outdated. All wood releases some formaldehyde but the amount of the gas in manufactured homes easily meets safety standards.

Get Featured in our Home Gallery

You can get more visits to your company website by participating in MHISC's online home galleries.

Send in photos of homes you are selling and we'll put them on the high-traffic galleries at mhisc.com. Each photo you send will link directly back to your website.

These galleries feature homes available from members in South Carolina and can be sorted by all homes, single-section, multi-section, modular, and communities.

This page will help connect the association's advertising audience with our members, giving members more website hits and allowing the public to better connect with your sales staff.

Reach out to cevans@mhisc.com if you are interested in being featured.

Chapter Meeting Volunteers

Right now is the time to step up and get involved in your local chapter. In March, all chapters will elect new chapter officers. Officers usually include a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and directors.

Chapter officers plan meetings, recruit turn-out, and organize events like golf tournaments to raise money for the chapter. Chapter presidents hold a seat on the MHISC Board of Directors.

Members can volunteer right now by contacting any local chapter officer or awestmoreland@mhisc.com

Officer elections will be held in March.
