Philadelphia, PA.: The Philadelphia Green Condo/Co-op Initiative (GCCI), in conjunction with Community Associations Institute (CAI) and the Greater Philadelphia Condo Managers Association (GPCMA), has announced that Leonard Bonacci, Director of Event Operations for the Philadelphia Eagles, will be the keynote speaker at the Inaugural Philadelphia Condo Congress, an event created to promote sustainable strategies for condo and co-op buildings of all sizes while improving the environment and the bottom line for owners and associations. Visit our Philadelphia Regional Council page for full event details.

Mr. Bonacci will share the story of the Eagles’ journey to create the greenest stadium in America and how multi-family buildings can adapt the technologies they are using to share in their success. Mr. Bonacci oversees and directs game day and special event operations for the Philadelphia Eagles including games, concerts, soccer games, the Army/Navy game, and a variety of community, corporate, and private functions held at Lincoln Financial Field.

The inaugural event will take place on October 23, 2012, from 3:00 pm to 7:30 pm, at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University at 1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Registration begins at 2:30 PM. The event is supported by the Academy’s Center for Environmental Policy and CAMCO Management Company and there is no charge to attend. Light refreshments will be served, and dinner may be purchased. Attendees will learn how the adoption of sustainable practices such as alternative energy and use of efficient building materials can generate a return on investment while helping the environment.

The Philadelphia Condo Congress is the culmination of years of input from concerned homeowners, professional managers and governing boards that envision a community of condo, co-op and homeowner associations united around the goals of economic efficiency and environmental responsibility.

Features of the Congress include hands-on workshops, a mini trade show with diverse exhibitors serving the condo market, networking sessions and refreshments. Breakout sessions will include case studies on sustainable practices in condo/co-op buildings, a legal and legislative update on case law and pending legislation affecting community associations, and sessions on the legal and financial implications of adopting sustainable practices and projects. Attendees can come for one session or stay for the entire program.

Who should attend?  

  • Managers in condominiums, cooperatives and homeowners associations considering adopting sustainable practices or who just want to learn more on these subjects.
  • Homeowners and elected volunteers in community associations looking for information on conservation, alternative energy, and associated legal and financial issues.
