Free Webinar: Essentials of Successful Short-Term Rental Programs
Includes a Live Event on 03/09/2021 at 1:00 PM (EST)
Are you considering a regulation and enforcement strategy for short-term rentals (STRs), often found on sites like Airbnb and VRBO? Or do you already have a compliance program in place? Regardless of where you are in your STR compliance journey, it’s important to stay up to date on developments in both the STR market and the government compliance space.
As a leading provider of STR compliance tools for local and state governments, we want to ensure you have all the necessary information to either establish a successful program, improve your current program, or keep your program up-to-date and relevant in the face of a rapidly changing post-2020 STR landscape.
Join short-term rental compliance expert Ulrik Binzer, urban planner Jeffrey B. Goodman, and Nashville Zoning Administrator Jon Michael, to discuss how Airbnb-style rentals are impacting quality of life, housing affordability, and neighborhood safety in communities across North America, what changes you can expect in 2021, and how to ensure short-term rentals contribute positively to your local area.
This webinar is complimentary thanks to the sponsorship of an ICMA Strategic Partner who will have access to registration information.

Since 2014, Jeffrey Goodman has been engaged in a long-running research project focusing on data-driven and innovative regulation of short-term rentals based on a shared responsibility model and effective place-based rules that work at multiple scales. Beginning in New Orleans – a city in constant discussion over the rights of tourists and locals – Jeffrey has engaged with neighborhood groups, elected officials, housing and tourism advocates, and the tech community to move past a ‘yes or no’ battle towards a more nuanced and effective regulatory environment. His data work, which involved both online and in-person collection, has led to advisory roles with policy advocates in New York City, New Orleans, and San Francisco, real estate reporters in Manhattan, and local governments in Colorado.
