Management Companies Gather

Mar 6, 2015

Management company members of CAI gathered for a breakfast meeting at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club on Friday, February 27 for the first Management Company CEO Breakfast hosted by the chapter in about 8 years. The purpose of the breakfast was to encourage networking between management company members, share ideas, talk about industry trends, and receive information on CAI programs, including legislative initiatives.

Chapter President Kevin McGrath, PCAM, of Benjamin Cobrin & Company, welcomed attendees, when then heard a short educational presentation on social media and protecting your online identity. The program was facilitated by Sabine Leidel of Union Bank. Sponsors of the breakfast included Brickman Group, Bustamante Engineers, DW Smith Associates, LLC, Fineman Krekstein & Harris and Lemus Construction.

Chapter Executive Director Tony Campisi shared information with attendees on the upcoming May 14th Annual Conference & Expo at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and reviewed legislative priorities of the Pennsylvania Legislative Action Committee. These priorities include a legislative fix to the Supreme Court case Shaffer v. Zoning Hearing Board of Chanceford Township, Recorder of Deeds Fees, and tax equalization. For full details on these issues, please visit our legislative action committee pages.

The breakfast ended with an open discussion on issues facing management and the industry as a whole, along with a decision to re-convene in the Fall for another CEO meeting, followed by a happy hour. Details of the second meeting will be sent out later this year.
