Condominium unit owners, board members, and community association representatives from across the Commonwealth gathered at the Radisson Hotel in Chelmsford to hear six P&A attorneys and three additional experts discuss issues facing our condominium association clients. The experts included a LEED-Certified professional engineer, an insurance agent with experience in community associations and an energy efficiency expert. Questions spanned the realm of the practical and the unique, voicing concerns such as:
- Does government threaten community associations with mortgage legislation?
- Are Drones considered a danger to condominium associations?
- What type of insurance is best for a given community?
- How can associations decrease their environmental impact?
Board members appeared to benefit not only from the experts but also from sharing their experiences with each other. An additional benefit for the P&A Staff was the opportunity to interact socially with a number of familiar faces as well as new participants – many of whom commented on the value of the program.
Of course, the real highlight of the event was when, first thing in the morning, Attorney Charlie Perkins led the P&A Team and the audience in a performance of his song “Condos for Sale or Rent”, a parody of the Roger Miller song “King of the Road”. It set the tone for an upbeat and productive program.
