Seminars

The Green Way
Sponsored by: New England Condominium
Speakers: Coming Soon
10:30am - 11:30am, Room 1
Most residents are concerned about climate change, and even more are concerned about rising fuel costs, but the network of local, state, and federal incentives to go green, reduce energy consumption, and lessen the environmental impact of multifamily buildings can feel bewildering to many. This seminar would give an overview of programs and policies that co-ops and condos can participate in to reduce energy use, lessen their carbon footprint, and save money
Your Duty of Care - Maintaining Security & Avoiding Liability
Sponsored by: Marcus, Errico, Emmer & Brooks, P.C.
Speakers:
Jennifer L. Barnett, Partner, Marcus, Errico, Emmer & Brooks, P.C.
Gary Daddario, Partner, Marcus, Errico, Emmer & Brooks, P.C.
11:30am - 12:30pm, Room 2
The recent Field v. Highbridge Concierge decision handed down by Massachusetts Superior Court has major implications for boards and managers across the state. The court found that condominium associations and managers have a “duty of care” ─ an obligation to provide security ─ in their common areas, and may be found liable for damages resulting from their failure to do so. This panel will explain the impact of this ruling on how boards should address security in their communities, and give tips on how to go about it intelligently.
Working With Contractors - Proactive Strategies for Positive Results

This informative seminar will draw on the expertise of an array of professionals to give boards insider tips on how to reduce the stress and financial suprises that can plague residential communities undertaking major projects. Come find out how to be more proactive when it comes to planning work, hiring contractors, and communicating more effectively, both with your fellow trustees and your chosen professionals.
Conflict Management in Divisive Times
Sponsred by: New England Condominium
Speakers: Coming Soon
1:30pm - 2:30pm, Room 2
Adjust the focus of past (very popular) seminars on the topic to include defusing tension and hostility at meetings, the impact (for good and ill) of social media, including platforms like Nextdoor (for neighbors) and Yelp (for management), what constitutes ‘harassment’ and how to deal with antagonistic residents. Discuss practical methods for maintaining order and decorum at meetings, ‘talking down’ emotional situations, and boards/managers’ legal obligation (if any) to intervene in feuds between residents
Know Your Docs
Sponsred by: New England Condominium
Speakers: Coming Soon
2:30pm - 3:30pm, Room 1
We constantly hear from residents, and even board members, who have questions and grievances about their building’s administration that could easily be answered by their own governing documents - bylaws, house rules, etc….had they ever actually read them. This seminar would outline the functions of the most foundational documents of co-op and condo communities, why and how boards and residents must abide by them, what’s involved in amending them, and how it benefits everyone in a building community to have a working understanding of them
