Message from the Chair - Welcome to the 25th Annual Condo Conference and Expo
By: Beth Tramontozzi Sullivan

Welcome to the 25th Annual Condo Conference & Expo. With it being our 25th year we decided to really shake things. We are heading North to Danvers to the Doubletree by Hilton. This will be the first time in over 10 years that we have been this far north! So for all of you members over the Massachusetts border please come visit us.

We are having a two-day event which starts on Friday September 12th from 3-5pm. Futurist and keynote speaker Watts Wacker will provide some thought provoking ideas on the future of our industry, Condominium Communities of Tomorrow. (*This is a must see for managers and board members out there) A networking reception will be held after this Friday afternoon program. The conference qualifies for 3 continuing education points on Friday and another 5 on Saturday for CMCA and AMS recertification

On Saturday, September 13th from 8 am - 2:30 pm there will be educational programs and of course lunch to network with volunteer leaders and industry professional. We have expanded our education rooms this year to hold Legal Q&A break out session for each state along with hot topics for educational classes. The show floor will be open from 8 am – 12:30 pm. Please come out and be a part of our 25th year helping service condo associations throughout New England.

I extend a grateful thank you to all the hard working and dedicated members of the Conference & Expo Committee including Pat Brawley, Andy Costa, Lauren Darrah, Mark Einhorn, Andrea Georgetti, Howard Himmel, Steve Hornsby, Mary-Joy Howes, Amanda Luciano, Charlotte Scuderi, Eric Simard and Adam Swerling who meet throughout the year to organize and oversee this annual event. And thanks to chapter staff Natalie Springsteen, Jeanne Yanaro, Lucy Bean and Chapter Executive Director, Claudette Carini for their hard work and leadership.

And to our Conference & Expo corporate co-sponsors, Crowninshield Management Corp., AMO and Pro-Care, Inc., a special thank you and recognition of their generous contributions and support.
