Mark Your Calendar for Expo 2012 Free Advice, Information and Seminars for Condo, HOA & Co-op Boards

Mark Your Calendar for Expo 2012

 For half a decade now, The New Jersey Cooperator’s Condo, HOA & Co-op Expo has been the annual must-attend event for the Garden State’s property managers, board members, real estate professionals, shareholders and  unit owners. Returning to the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus this  year on Wednesday, May 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the 2012 Expo will showcase  over 200 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 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 such as board operations, effective property  management, preparing a legal budget and more. Seminar presenters will include  management teams from Association Advisors and Associa, attorneys from Stark & Stark, and lending strategists from MetLife.  

 Last year's seminars attracted standing-room-only audiences so make sure to  arrive early so you don’t get shut out.  

 Free Advice Booths & More

 Vendor 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. Past attendees have gone home with tickets to professional sporting  events and Broadway shows, iPads, certificates for valuable condo and HOA  services, even vacation packages!  

 $2,500 Reserve Fund Giveaway

 One of the most popular offerings is 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 building or 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 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 for updates and new additions to the Expo’s exhibitor and seminar roster. You can always visit for more  information on who is exhibiting at the show, to sign up as an exhibitor, or to  register for this one-of-a-kind event. We look forward to seeing you at the  Meadowlands Expo Center on May 9th!
