2008 Housing Maintenance Fair 1On March 20, 2008 BDS participated in the 2008 Maintenance Fair and Maintenance Mania at the Oregon Convention Center sponsored by Metro Multifamily Housing Association. According to the fair organizers they had 340 registrants plus a dozen or so drop ins.


2008 Housing Maintenance Fair 2There were 41 exhibitors, including product manufacturers, property managers, and recyclers. BDS shared its table with the City of Gresham' s Development Services and the Fair Housing Council of Oregon. Besides the exhibits there were 3 sessions of 6 classes per session with topics such on Mold, Maintenance Professionalism, Whirlpool Refrigeration, and Carpet/Floor Repair.


2008 Housing Maintenance Fair 3Popular brochures at the BDS booth included Title 29, Basic Housing Requirements, Guide to Permits and Inspections, and Permit Night. Besides our informative inspectors (Atanasov, Bolden Collins, Marihart, Strang and Unkow) the big attraction at our booth was the BDS logoed interchangeable screw driver kit. Thanks to Carol Richard and Tiffani Penson for having us well prepared.
