Come Prepared to Learn! Expo Shaping Up as Must-Attend Event

Come Prepared to Learn!

 With the New Year under way, The New Jersey Cooperator’s 2011 Condo, HOA & Co-op Expo is quietly taking shape as this spring’s must-attend event for the Garden State’s property managers, board members and unit owners.  

 Held at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 from  10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the free event will showcase hundreds of exhibitors from  throughout the region, along with free advice booths and a full slate of  educational seminars.  

 Good information and clear communication are crucial for anyone involved with  the administration of a condo building or homeowners association—crucial not just to thriving, but even surviving in today's challenging economic  times. Finding that information and developing communication strategies isn't  always easy, however. The New Jersey Cooperator's Condo, HOA & Co-op Expo offers attendees the opportunity to do both, in one day and under  one roof, with a full slate of unique educational programming.  

 Full Day of Seminars

 This year, a full schedule of seminars will be presented, running throughout the  day and covering topics ranging from energy conservation to legal issues, board  operations and effective property management to telecommunications. Seminar  presenters will include funding strategists from National Condo Advisors,  attorneys from the Lawrenceville-based law firm of Stark & Stark, and management consultants from Freehold-based Association Advisors.  

 Last year's seminars attracted standing-room-only audiences, so the complete  lineup of seminars for this year—to be announced shortly—is sure to present essential and cutting-edge information for anyone involved in  running a condo association or co-op building. Be sure to arrive early and  claim a spot in the audience!  

 Free Advice Booths & More

 Booths and a full schedule of seminars may be the big draws to the 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 leading legal, management, maintenance and financial  professionals.  

 And of course, no trade show would be complete without giveaways and raffles.  Throughout the day, random drawings will be held for a host of valuable door  prizes.  

 $2,500 Reserve Fund Giveaway

 This year will also mark the return of the Reserve Fund prize giveaway, courtesy  of The New Jersey Cooperator and Yale Robbins, Inc. One attendee at the Expo  will win a $2,500 contribution to their 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 association, care of their management company. Only New Jersey board members  qualify to enter the reserve fund drawing, and attendance at the Expo is  required for eligibility. For complete details on how to enter the reserve fund  drawing, visit the Expo website,  

 So stay tuned to The New Jersey Cooperator for updates and new additions to the  Expo’s exhibitor and seminar roster, and be sure to visit us at the Meadowlands Expo  Center on May 11th!
