Yale Robbins, Inc. would like to warmly welcome our sponsors, exhibitors, and guests to The Cooperator’s 21st Annual Co-op & Condo Expo on April 29th at the Hilton New York. This year’s event from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. will continue our long-standing tradition of information, education, and networking opportunities for those in the co-op and condo housing field.
Information & Opportunities
This year’s Expo features nearly 300 exhibitor booths representing everything from law firms to HVAC repair professionals, as well as six all-new sponsor seminars presented by an array of industry experts.
The seminars at this year’s Expo have been sponsored by established industry professionals and cover the kinds of topics that are of perpetual interest to boards, managers, and building residents. Our seminars are some of the Expo’s most popular offerings and routinely attract standing-room-only audiences, so it’s a good idea to arrive early and claim a seat well before your chosen seminar is scheduled to start.
Kicking off the day at 10 a.m. in the Rhinelander Gallery seminar area is a distinguished panel of experts from some of New York City’s best-known co-op and condo management and advocacy groups presenting “Secrets to a Productive Board/Management Relationship.” In order for your building community to run smoothly and efficiently, the all-important relationship between board and management must be cultivated and maintained. In this session, you’ll learn ways to maximize the relationship between your board and managing agent by improving communication, reducing and handling conflict, and increasing productivity.
At 11 a.m., Attorney David J. Byrne and the law firm of Stark & Stark returns to the Expo with “Avoiding Litigation in a Complex World.” For this offering, panelists will discuss strategies to help your co-op, condo, or HOA avoid costly, potentially damaging litigation. Discussion will range from strategies for collecting unpaid maintenance to help with finding alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve conflicts among community members.
