In May 2017, Neighborhood Preservation, Inc. and the University Of Memphis Law School launched the nation’s first Strategic Code Enforcement Management Academy (SCEMA). The high-touch, interactive executive academy provides the rare opportunity for participants to learn about strategic code enforcement management and to learn from each other as they build a network of peer communities. National code enforcement expert Joe Schilling and others serve as faculty for the two pilot management academies.
