NYARM qualification for property managers.

The business of property management is becoming more and more complex. Serving board members and residents, dealing with porters, doormen, security staff, maintenance and utility men, and helping boards choose from an array of contractors, today's property manager can benefit from an organization of active property manager practitioners to keep him or her on the cutting edge of the profession.

Formed in 1958, NYARM is an organization dedicated to the advancement of the real estate management profession. The organization offers to the industry management classes that form the NYARM Certification Program. Associated with the Real Estate Institute at New York University's School of Continuing Education, five of the six courses in the program will be taught this fall:

1) Fundamentals of Financial Management

2) How to Deal Effectively With Tenants

3) Renovation Construction for Managers

4) Management and Operations of Building Systems

5) Complying with New York City Local Laws

6) Supervisory Skills for Managing Residential and Cooperative Properties (to be offered in the spring of 1994)

The six courses are also applicable to the Certificate in Building and Property Management from New York University.

Classes begin in September at NYU's 11 West 42nd St. location. For registration information, call NYU at (212)790-1344. For certification, information call NYARM at (718)983-6331.

NYARM frequently offers seminars on timely topics for managers. A recent seminar was an in-depth discussion on landlord/tenant relations. Led by attorney Frank Gutman, a city marshal and housing court judge, the seminar provided insight into the eviction process. Another seminar topic dealt with employee relations, instructing managers how to document problems and build a case against fractious employees.

NYARM's monthly meetings, open to both members and non-members, attract some of the most prominent real estate professionals and governmental officials in the community. Usually held at Tavern on the Green in Central Park, past speakers have included Peter Vallone, president of the City Council; Claire Shulman, Queens borough president; Herman Badillo and Alan Hevesi, both currently running for City Comptroller. This year's line-up so far includes Supreme Court Justice Jacqueline Silbermann, and Public Advocate candidate Mark Green.

Members also benefit from the NYARM Newspaper, now in its tenth year of publication. The publication covers topical industry events and issues critical to the management profession. Tackling subjects such as lead paint, the Clean Air Act, and the homeless, the NYARM Newspaper provides an unparalleled vehicle for members to read about themselves, their peers, and industry matters.

Many important topics and issues have also been highlighted by NYARM in its monthly television segment on Time Wamer's award-winning "Realty Views" cable TV program.

For the past five years, NYARM has held a widely acclaimed trade show. This year, NYARM joins forces with The New York Cooperator, a publication targeting co-op and condo Boards, to launch The 1993 New York Real Estate Congress. This unique one-day event, a political forum and traditional exhibition, takes place on Wednesday, Oct. 6, at the Sheraton Hotel on 52nd Street and Seventh Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. The Congress, featuring a variety of panels, seminars, and guest lecturers scheduled throughout the day, will provide a forum for politicians and industry professionals to congregate and discuss key issues relevant to the real estate industry today and in the future. Guest speakers include Peter Vallone, president of the City Council; Carl Weisbrod, president, Public Development Corporation; The Reverend Al Sharpton; Herman Badillo, candidate for Comptroller; and New York State Senator Donald Halperin; Barbara Corcoran, president, The Corcoran Group; and Terry Lewis, president, National Association of Housing Cooperatives. Panel topics include: Real Estate Taxes; Co-op/Condo issues; the Future of Downtown Manhattan; Lead Paint; Homeless/Low Income Housing; Housing Court; Landmarks/architecture; and Residential Real Estate. For further information about registering for the Congress and the exhibition, call Donna Klein, executive director of NYARM at (800) 244-NYARM or (718) 983-6331 (outside New York City.)
