Come Prepared to Learn at the Condo Expo!

 The New England Condo Expo on May 12th at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston is more than just a great place to  meet condominium professionals and network with community association leaders– it’s also a tremendous opportunity to learn more about running a successful  community.  

 In addition to showcasing more than 150 exhibitors in an information-packed  trade show, the Condo Expo offers free advice booths and a full day of educational seminars featuring experienced professionals. The seminar line-up includes:

 •    “Keeping the Peace: Conflict Reso-lution,” led by attorneys from the Law Offices of Goodman, Shapiro and Lombardi, with  offices in Dedham, MA, and Providence, RI;  

 •    “New Rules, New Headaches: Cutting Through Bureaucratic Red Tape” sponsored by Orest Tomaselli of National Condo Advisors, LLC, who will discuss  new rules and processes for condominium project approval required for financing  through both the Federal Housing Administration and Fannie Mae;  

 •    “Budgeting for Today – Making Smart Choices in Tough Times,” with accountant David A. Levy, CPA, of Brookline, MA;  

 •    “Greening Your Condo,” featuring experts in energy and conservation topics; and  

 •    “Secrets to a Productive Board/ Management Relationship,” with management professionals David J. Levy of Sterling Services, Deborah  Jones, PCAM, of American Properties Team in Woburn, MA , and Andrew J. Costa of  Costa Property Management, along with Joe Tancrell, treasurer of Bruce Hollow  Condo II in Grafton, MA.  

 This year’s Expo will run from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. – so there’s plenty of time for you to tour the exhibition hall, chat with service  providers, and still take advantage of these free educational opportunities.  

 Save the Date

 Mark your calendar now for Wednesday, May 12, 2010 – because you won’t want to miss this event at the Seaport World Trade Center at 200 Seaport  Boulevard in Boston.  

 For more than two decades, New England Condominium’s parent company, Yale Robbins, Inc., has been hosting successful trade shows for the co-op and condo industry in both New York and New  Jersey. This spring, New England Condominium is pleased to invite New England’s property managers, trustees, and unit owners back to the Seaport venue to  partake in a day of networking, idea-exchange, and giveaways custom-tailored for their unique market. The premier real estate trade event in the region, the Expo features exhibitors from every sector of the condo and HOA industry – including attorneys, property managers, financial advisors, interior and  exterior maintenance contractors, landscapers, vendors, and professional  organizations.  

 Free Advice Booths & More

 Exhibitor booths and a full schedule of seminars may be the big draws at the Condo Expo, but that’s hardly the whole picture. In addition to networking and education  opportunities, the show’s popular free advice booths will be returning as well. If you have questions  about your association’s finances, policies, or day-to-day management, you can stop by one of the  booths for answers from volunteer legal, management, maintenance and financial  professionals. And of course, no trade show would be complete without giveaways  and raffles.  

 This year will feature a new Reserve Fund prize giveaway, courtesy of New England Condominium and Yale Robbins, Inc. One attendee will win a $2,500 contribution to their building association’s reserve fund. The winner will be drawn at random after registration has closed,  and a check for the winnings will be made payable to the winner’s building, care of their management company. Only trustees qualify to enter the reserve fund drawing, and attendance at the Expo is required foreligibility. For complete details on how to enter the reserve fund drawing,  visit the Expo website, www.ne-expo.com.
