They are not members and in no way affiliated with MHEDA.  Our attorney has contacted them to cease and desist his marketing of the MHEDA membership list as he is infringing on the MHEDA name and trademark as well as falsely representing himself and his ability to provide the MHEDA membership list for sale.
