GENERAL SESSION / KEYNOTE SPEAKER

BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Breakout Session 1  How to Make Your Building a "Super Saver" Standout
Reduce your building's energy use and operating expenses!
The city of Philadelphia now requires all multifamily buildings to report their water and energy usage using an on-line tool called Portfolio Manager.  After reviewing the data submitted by the multifamily buildings, the city will publish a listing showing how those buildings rank in water and energy  efficiency.  How will your building rank?  And what can you do to improve your ranking to make your building more competitive? 
PECO representatives will explain how their company can make your building more energy-efficient by replacing incandescent, CFL and fluorescent bulbs in your residential units and common areas with super-efficient LED bulbs at no or greatly reduced cost. 
Grayboyes, Inc. representatives will show examples of how replacing your current windows with energy-efficient windows will greatly enhance your exterior appearance, improve your quality of life, benchmarking ranking and financial bottom line.
                               
Breakout Session 2  The Condo Manager / Owner Guide to Navigating City Hall
Learn how to be more effective when meeting with officials at City Hall.
Navigating the city bureaucracy when it comes to multifamily housing issues has always been a quagmire.  From the Office of Property Assessments, the Department of Revenue and Licenses & Inspections, getting what you need from the city government is never easy.  This session will feature speakers from these departments that will help you find your way.
                                
Breakout Session 3  What's Up with the Water?
In the wake of the Flint water scandal, how safe is Philadelphia's water?
City Water Department representatives will present the latest information on Philadelphia's drinking water standards relative to federal and other large U.S. city standards, how plans to replace aging water pipes might impact service to multifamily buildings, the implications of bills recently introduced into City Council that address lead pipe replacement and requirements for homeowners to report lead levels in their drinking water when selling their homes, an overview of external threats to our drinking water quality and ways to reduce multifamily building water usage fees.  

Breakout Session 4  Legal & Legislative Affairs Update
Find out what's happening in the city and in Harrisburg.
Governor Wolf has signed two bills into nto law in the current session, and there are several others pending, that impact condos, co-ops and HOA's in the state.  In addition there have been various judicial cases and decisions that impact the industry.  This session will review the legislation and case law and its impact on community associations.
