PM Legal Services head to moderate at ARMA conference
24th September 2018
Leading trade body, the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA), has invited Cassandra Zanelli, head of PM Legal Services, to moderate at its national conference.
Cassandra, who launched the award-winning firm - a division of Keebles LLP - from scratch in February 2017, is a recognised residential leasehold expert and the first UK lawyer to be appointed to ARMA's advisory panel. ARMA's 'Agents for Change' conference in London on October 18 will address key sector issues - the repercussions of the Grenfell tragedy, regulation of managing agents and leasehold law reform. Keynote speaker is Law Commissioner Professor Nicholas Hopkins who will update delegates on residential leasehold and commonhold reform. A champion of driving up industry standards, Cassandra, who has been included in News on the Block's 2018 Hot 100 most influential people in the residential leasehold property sector across 2014-2018, will moderate an expert panel discussion which will debate the future of leasehold. She said: -This is a formative period for our sector and it's a tremendous privilege to be moderator at the industry's 'go to' conference where around 800 attendees will learn the latest developments from speakers at the highest level. Keebles head of commercial property, Richard Smith, said: -Being invited to moderate at ARMA's flagship annual conference reinforces Cassandra's reputation in the sector and reflects how highly she is regarded by influencers and regulators. Cassandra has also been invited to be a keynote speaker at an RICS CPD Day in Greater Manchester on November 8 where she will present on the incoming 'Right to Rent' checks. PM Legal Services, which has expanded by almost 300% in the last 12 months, is hosting its own series of 'Back to School' best practice conferences for property managers. The fourth event across 2018 takes place on September 20 at The Workstation, Sheffield where a strong line up of industry speakers will each present a 'lesson' for property managers to implement over the forthcoming school year.
