In the midst of a chilly New England winter, spring may seem ages away. But professionals serving the community associations industry are already preparing to showcase their businesses at the New England Condo Expo in May.
Exhibitors, from attorneys to roofers to managers and financial professionals, have already secured their spaces for the Condo Expo from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Along with the trade show, the event will feature educational seminars and free advice booths designed to help condo board members, owners and managers keep their communities running smoothly.
Can Your Community
Use a Little Extra Cash?
Of course, in addition to useful information and advice, you could be a big winner in helping your condominium association survive in these tough economic times.
The 2012 event once again will feature the very popular New England Condo Expo Reserve Fund drawing. One lucky board member or trustee will win a cool $2,500 for their building or association’s reserve fund, courtesy of New England Condominium, the sponsor of the Expo itself.
The big winner in 2011 was Bob Cyr, board chairman for The Esplanade, a 140-unit, 55-and-older condo community in Hudson, Massachusetts. “I was totally amazed—I’m still kind of stunned,” said Cyr upon accepting his community’s winnings from the publishers of New England Condominium. He said The Esplanade recently had to raise its maintenance fees, but “The funds will go a long way into paying off our electrical bills, things like that. It’s going to be money well spent for everyone who lives here.”
