Winner's Circle
By: Nena Groskind
June 2017
Hundreds of CAI-NE members and their guests gathered at the Marriott in Burlington, MA to celebrate the industry, the chapter and its honorees at the 21st annual chapter dinner and awards banquet. Wes Blair, the chapter’s immediate past president, joined current president Robert Keegan, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, in presenting the awards to association volunteers, professionals and business partners.

By: Nena Groskind
May 2017

You may be dealing with a hoarding situation. How should you handle it? The first step is understanding that hoarding is a mental illness—designated €officially as such by the American Psychiatric Association in 2013, but recognized by mental health professionals for many years before that.

But it turns out that condominium innovations aren’t as much of an oxymoron as you might assume. In fact, the industry executives we surveyed identified a variety of innovations: In building materials, snow removal equipment and techniques, and disaster recovery strategies, among other areas. We even spotted hints of change in the way condominium owners are thinking about the long-term needs of their communities.

Tripped Up
By: Nena Groskind
February 2017
Insurance pitfalls. Now there’s a topic that could fill a book and probably more than one. Few issues are more important for condominium owners and association boards than insurance, and few are more complicated and more likely to trip them up.
