Wharton-habitat Housing Finance Course At Asia-pacific Housing Forum

9, 2012, Gutschenritter sent all the Finance Committee members an email with his comments on the warrant article, writing, "I welcome all comments and suggestions either prior to or at tomorrows meeting." On Sept. 10, 2012, Finance Committee member Cherry Karlson sent the committee members two emails with comments on the proposed warrant articles for the Town Meeting. "Although these exchanges concerned documents to be discussed at a future meeting the warrant articles the members expressed opinions about the substance of those documents," wrote Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Sclarsic of the Division of Open Government. "This action should have been taken during an open session." In addition, the Finance Committee violated the Open Meeting Law by failing to respond to Harris complaint, even after the AGs office gave the committee a one-month extension. The AG ordered the Finance Committees future compliance with the law, and cautioned that future similar violations may be considered an intentional violation of the law. The committee must also publicly release the emails in question. Last month, Harris received a split decision from the AGs office in OML complaints he filed against two Wayland boards. Harris complained the Board of Selectmen and Wayland Surface Water Quality Committee were not specific enough in notices for meetings in August and September 2012, in addition to complaining the latter committee did not follow procedure for remote participation by a member. Sclarsic wrote that the Wayland Surface Water Quality Committee violated the Open Meeting Law, but the Board of Selectmen did not. After another complaint by Harris, a Middlesex Superior Court judge stated in late May that the Board of Selectmen should not have gone into executive session on July 8 and 26, 2010, to discuss Town Center developer Twenty Waylands lawsuit against the Wayland Historic District Commission. The law firm Kopelman & Paige will be conducting a training course on the Open Meeting Law for Wayland board members on Thursday, Sept.

The ombudsman had recently ordered the finance secretary to restore the 50 per cent commuted pensions with all the increases announced by the government for retired officials. The Finance Department then observed that under Section 11(2) of the Punjab Office of the Ombudsman Act 1997, they could not comply with the directions as the matter lay outside of his purview. The department further observed that under Section 9(1) (a) of the law, the ombudsman could not investigate any issue that was being heard in a court of competent jurisdiction. The matter, it said, was before the Supreme Court of Pakistan after it granted leave to appeal for reconsideration in the light of the Punjab governments stance. The department said that the ombudsman was barred from inquiring into any matter pertaining to the terms and conditions of services. As the issue of pensions fell in that domain, it fell outside the ombudsmans jurisdiction. Such matters were exclusively dealt with by the Punjab Services Tribunal. According to the department, the ombudsman could only investigate and inquire into matters pertaining to maladministration by departments and government agencies.

That asset total had dropped to $391 billion by the second quarter, according to Martin. Immelt said in May that the company still planned to expand GE Capital's core business, which is commercial lending. He also told his audience that capital markets were receptive to IPOs.

The event is the leading platform for advocating affordable housing solutions and decent shelter for low-income families, and was last held in the Philippine capital in 2009. It brings under one roof, public, private and people sector stakeholders engaged in seeking solutions to poverty housing issues. "Our Forum has gained considerable traction over the years. Like a 'Davos of poverty housing', it is an incubator for leading minds to offer creative solutions to address housing issues in Asia-Pacific. One in eight still lives in a slum in the region; so there is tremendous scope for collaboration between governments, businesses and civil society to improve the situation," said Rick Hathaway, Vice President for Asia-Pacific, Habitat for Humanity International. He added: "The traditional approach to tackling poverty housing by simply building more homes is one dimensional and limiting. Solving the problem requires addressing affordability of housing finance, climate change and disaster resiliency, land rights inequality, infrastructure planning, basic services provision, sustainable livelihoods, and adoption of green solutions. These are touch points that will be up for discussion at the forum." Among the confirmed participants are key policy makers, business titans, and thought leaders from humanitarian agencies and research institutions. They include Jejomar Binay, Philippine Vice President; Alicia Bala, Deputy Secretary of ASEAN; Senator Loren Legarda, member of Philippine Senate; Henry Cisneros, former US Housing Secretary and Founder/Chairman of CityView; Nestor Espenilla, Deputy Governor, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; Mr. Askaran K. Agarwala, Director, Aditya Birla Group; Vikram Gandhi, Founder/CEO of VSG Capital Advisors; Kevin Lim, CEO of First Finance; Suresh K.
