Council of New York Cooperatives & Condominiums

Autumn 2000

The Council of New York Cooperatives & Condominiums held its 20th Annual Housing Conference on Sunday, November 12, 2000 at Hunter College on Manhattan's East Side. For two decades, this premier educational event has brought together hundreds of board members for a rewarding day of learning and sharing information about their cooperatives and condominiums. At this Conference, new board members found courses in all of the basics--financial, legal, physical plant, and 'people questions;' and experienced board members explored specific issues of interest--whether it is purchasing of deregulated energy, resolving conflicts of interest, redecorating the lobby, recruiting capable successors, or planning for the building's future needs.

The following information was supplied to attendees before the Conference. Please stay tuned for information on the 21st annual Conference, coming next autumn.

Each regular Conference registrant can attend two to three sessions, depending upon the length of those selected, and can visit the Exhibit hall, view video shows and attend the Convocation at the end of the day. Preregistration is required, and you must select your workshops as you register so that tickets can be sent to you. These tickets will tell you the time, the building, and the room where the class you have chosen will be conducted. Registrations received after November 8th will have tickets held at the door.

Every Conference registrant receives a name badge which admits him or her to CNYC's Exhibit area on the third floor of the West Building. The Exhibit Area is open from 8 AM to 3 PM, with complimentary coffee and tea available throughout the day. You will want to arrive early in the morning to have time to see all the exhibits before your first seminar. You can also exhibit-hop during the lunch break, when snacks, beverages and box lunches can be purchased from the Hunter catering Service in the Exhibit area. Many of the exhibitors will offer door prizes to be awarded at the Convocation at the end of the day. To attend only the exhibits and the video theater, cut out the complimentary ticket on the cover of this Newsletter. CNYC will also send five exhibit area tickets to each member buildings. Additional tickets for the exhibits and videos can be purchased for $5. They are valid from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM.

CNYC's television show, CO-OP ROUNDTABLE, is presented throughout the day on the sixth and seventh floors of the West Building. The Conference Brochure and program list these shows. All Conference registrants and holders of Exhibit area tickets are welcome at the videos. Workshops registrants can view shows early in the morning or during the lunch break, or they can plan a day that combines workshops and videos.

Each cooperative and condominium that is a current CNYC member can send one representative to this Conference at no cost. For others, registration fees vary depending on the status of your building, the timing of your registration, and whether you take advantage of the team registration opportunity. Check the Conference brochure inserted opposite page 8 of this Newsletter for details and the registration form. Advance registration is strongly encouraged. Tickets will be mailed to all those registered by November 8th. Later registrants should allow extra time to pick up their tickets at the Conference. Tickets are required for entry to each workshop. Carefully consult your ticket and the Conference Program for the building and room of your workshops. Classes are located in three buildings this year. The other buildings are accessible through the interior bridge over 68th Street which is located next to CNYC Headquarters on the third floor of the West Building. Report to CNYC Headquarters when you arrive at the Conference for your Conference materials.

At the end of the day, all participants are invited to gather at CNYC HEADQUARTERS on the Third Floor of the West Building for refreshments and the awarding of door prizes. Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer will address the group and CNYC will have the opportunity to thank the Borough President for his careful attention to the needs of the cooperatives and condominiums in his borough.

Here are the door prizes presently promised by the exhibitors :

A & D STEEL EQUIPMENT - 2 Ranger Tickets
BELLETT CONSTRUCTION - Hand-held dictating machine
KAY WATERPROOFING- Broadway Theater Tickets
