Annual Expo About Co-ops
The Federation of New York Housing Cooperatives is scheduled to
hold its 44th annual Expo — a series of seminars and a trade show —
next Sunday in the Student Union Building at Queens College.
The program, running from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with registration
beginning at 7:45 a.m., will offer a choice of 10 seminars, including
nuts-and-bolts sessions on planning for capital improvements,
preventive maintenance, energy conservation and high-tech buildings.
There will also be seminars on less technical issues, such as how
co-ops can ensure that they are not violating discrimination laws and
how they can accommodate an aging population.
The opening remarks, at 8:30 a.m., are to be given by the City Council
speaker, Peter F. Vallone, who will discuss prospects for extending
the city's co-op and condominium real estate tax abatements, which are
due to expire on June 30.
The federation, founded in 1950, has a membership of 600 buildings
with about 200,000 apartments in all five boroughs, said Greg
Carlson, its executive director, "but our stronghold is in Queens."
Admission to the convention, which is open to the public, is $70 for
members and $85 for nonmembers, and includes lunch. Queens
College is on Kissena Boulevard in Flushing, one block south of the
Long Island Expressway.
