Up With the Sun - How Your Building Can Save Money, Create Value, & Reduce its Carbon Footprint with Solar
Sponsored by: Best Energy Power
Speaker: Ronnie Mandler, Owner/President - Best Energy Power

Solar power is gaining traction in multifamily communities nationwide - but concerns about funding, installation, and ROI still have some boards hesitant. This informative discussion will explain how solar works, break down its costs, explore financing options and subsidy programs, and demonstrate how going solar can help your building save big on operating costs - especially in light of Local Laws 92, 94, and 97, which require co-op and condo buildings over 25,000 square feet to have solar on the roof, or risk fines for noncompliance.
11:30am - 12:30pm, Room 1
Recovering Common Charge & Maintenance Arrears - Effective Collections Strategies for Boards & Managers
Sponsored by: Schneider Buchel LLP
Speaker: Marc H. Schneider, Esq.

A predictable, consistent inflow of cash is crucial for all multifamily communities to function - so unpaid maintenance and common charges pose a big problem for boards and residents alike. Arrears can lead to unpaid bills, neglected maintenance, and delayed capital projects. Marc H. Scheider, Esq, a legal pro will offer practical strategies for not only quickly recovering unpaid monies, but getting the most monies back, including interest, late fees and legal fees, so your community can stay solvent and financially stable.
12:30pm - 1:30pm, Room 2
Local Law 97 Compliance - Deconstructing the Law & its Impact on Multifamily Buildings
Sponsored by: The Cotocon Group
Speakers:
Jimmy Carchietta, Founder & CEO
Kristian Mundija – Property Management Specialist
Joey Shiner – Head of Product

Complying with Local Law 97 (LL97) has many New York multifamily boards and managers stressed - the expense of reducing carbon emissions to acceptable levels (and avoiding steep fines for noncompliance) is daunting, and in many cases prohibitive. While no building may be able to attain total carbon neutrality, this expert panel will offer practical strategies for minimizing capitalization while maximizing decarbonization. Other issues to be discussed include resources to help boards reach compliance, implications for rent-controlled buildings, and the City’s Covered Buildings List (CBL).
1:30pm - 2:30pm, Room 1
Resident Rights vs. Board Confidentiality – New Standards for Access to Records & Disclosure of Private Information

Eric Blaha- Chair of the Legislation Subcommittee of the Co-op/Condo Committee of the NYC Bar Association
Ryan Houck, Associate, Smith, Buss & Jacobs LLP

What rights do individual owners have to inspect their association’s books? What rights do boards have to limit owner review? When can a board restrict what an owner discloses to other owners, or what board members disclose to owners? This panel of legal experts will discuss these questions and more, including what personal information the US Treasury Department can require board members to disclose under the recently-passed Corporate Transparency Act (CTA).
2:30pm - 3:30pm, Room 2

Your common areas - including the lobby, hallways, mail room, and other shared spaces - are the first impression visitors and residents alike get upon entering the property. If those areas are shabby, poorly maintained, or just plain dated, it erodes both curb appeal and resident morale, and can even negatively impact property values. This discussion will take you through the process of sprucing up these heavy-traffic zones step-by-step, from low-cost, low-impact improvements to more in-depth renovations.
