Our buildings can tell the story of how we are using or wasting energy. Just as a person needs to listen to their body, we need to learn what clues buildings are giving us to help them perform better. What is your building telling you? Do the pipes clang in revolt when winter arrives? Are you getting foul odors from other parts of the building (odors traveling between apartments)? Is it eating too much (high energy bills)? Are you getting hot or cold flashes (temperature complaints)? Does your building have circles under its eyes (dark stains around the windows)? You may think these symptoms are as inevitable as the common cold, but by using the power of science, these frequent complaints of close quarters living can be cured. In this 2-hour class, organized for CNYC by Solar1, you will learn how to keep your building in high-performance condition. Bring your Super. Bring your property manager. Bring yourself. There is no cost for CNYC members and subscribers to attend this workshop but advanced registration is required. Others are welcome at a fee of $35 payable in advance. To pay at the door, reserve in advance and add a surcharge of $15.

This task has diverse ramifications--all are potential discussion topics at the Treasurers' Workshop, conducted at regular intervals by CNYC. This is not a 'how-to' presentation, but rather an opportunity for treasurers to 'talk shop' under the guidance of Rick Montanye of the accounting firm of Marin & Montanye. Issues raised brought by participants set the agenda. Treasurers (and other board members) of CNYC member cooperatives and condominiums attend at no cost, but advanced registration is required.

ALBANY—Energy efficiency offers a practical solution to complex, persistent challenges impacting the performance of multifamily buildings. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is holding seminars for building owners and developers in both Manhattan and Rochester this September and October to discuss the high value of investment in energy efficiency projects.

The free seminars will connect multifamily building owners, property managers, developers and board members of condominium and co-op associations with the resources they need to start saving through customizable energy efficiency programs in NYSERDA’s Multifamily Energy Performance Portfolio. Participants will receive an overview of the technical assistance and financial support available and will hear from experts about how energy improvements in existing buildings and new construction reduce energy costs.

Properties that make energy efficiency upgrades through the programs can generally realize significant cost savings—up to 20 percent or more—and offer residents units that are more comfortable, healthier and sustainable.

Multiple session options are available for building owners, managers, developers and condo / co-op board members to choose from at the following locations and times:

Manhattan, Tuesday, Sept. 9 at the SUNY Global Center in the Global Classroom, 116 East 55th Street, New York, N.Y. 10022
