Join us for EMBCA's “NYC Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) Community Service" Event this Thursday, February 25 at 2 P.M. EST. EMBCA has been asked by OATH to host an informational event to home and business owners in New York City and has agreed as a community service. The event will be introduced by Lou Katsos, EMBCA's President/Founder and moderated by EMBCA's V.P. and Old Astoria Neighborhood Association President Richard Khuzami. The presenters will include, among others, New York City OATH Commissioner Joni Kletter and OATH Senior Staff. OATH’s Commissioner and Senior Staff will present a unique and informative presentation with questions and answers representing the official word of the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings relating to what to do if you get a summons. OATH’s mission is to provide fair and neutral administrative proceedings, which protect the due process rights of all litigants—me and you the public. Matters adjudicated at the OATH are akin to civil trials without a jury. The procedural rules are streamlined but pre-trial discovery is available. While administrative hearings & trials do not mandate strict applications of the rules of evidence or the rules of civil procedure, OATH relies upon both to ensure the essential elements of a fair trial are afforded to all litigants. This event will be in Association with the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, the Greek Homeowners Association, AHEPA District 6, AHEPA Hermes Ch. No. 186, the Old Astoria Neighborhood Association, HELLAS FM, American Sephardic Alliance, the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, the Queens Chamber of Commerce, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, the Bronx Chamber of Commerce, Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, FiatLuxStudios , and other New York City community and business leaders and stakeholders.
