Experts help wow visitors to annual NYARM Expo.
Sponsored by the New York Association of Realty Managers, the annual Expo provides valuable information to management executives, managing agents, resident managers, supers and real estate professionals.
The free event includes seminars, Continuing Education courses for licensed real estate brokers, and a trade show floor with 65 information booths.
One of this year's most popular spots was the NYC Department of Buildings' Violations Cure Unit, which helped owners and managers address building violations on the spot using wireless laptop computers. A line of people was waiting at the booth when the trade show floor opened at 9 am. Renaldo Hylton, Director of the DOB's Administrative Enforcement Unit (AEU staffed the booth all day, going over specific violations with individual owners and managers and helping to get the proper paperwork filed.
The four seminars were very well attended, focusing on issues such as real estate law, Energy Purchasing, Green Awareness and Capital Improvements. Over lunch, a special Executive Management Forum was held for top-level property managers, focusing on Building Codes and Their Affect on Property Managers and Owners. Featured panelists included Department of Buildings Assistant Commissioner Benjamin Jones; Roberta Bemstein, President of Small Property Owners of New York (SPONY); and NYARM President Greg Carlson.
Other expert panelists included Ronald McCain, the Director of the Facade Integrity Audit Unit at the DOB, Glen Nison from the NYC Department of Sanitation's Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling, John Nettleton of the Comell University Cooperative Extension, Mitchel Konca of OSHA, Carmen Rainieri of FAI Construction Consultants, and Dan Wollman of Gumley Hail management.
"We were especially pleased to have such a large presence among New York City and State agencies this year," said NYARM president Greg Carlson.
