Moderated Panel: Mark Wade, Berkshire Hathaway; Jason Conner, Director of Sales, Keller Williams

Philadelphia is experiencing a building boom with new condos, apartments, retail, restaurants and office towers going up by the dozens.

Closing Session:  The Hospitality Culture: Creating a Positive Sense of Community to Increase Value.
Speaker: David G. Benton, General Manager, 10 Rittenhouse Square

When owners and residents are engaged and content with their condominium, they speak well of the property to their friends. This builds demand for units and helps create increased equity for all who reside in the building. David Benton, General Manager at 10 Rittenhouse Square, will lead a discussion focusing on the role of the community association / condo manager in building a hospitality culture, creating a sense of community in an urban high rise condominium and overcoming the typical challenges of motivating and gathering together apathetic, busy, disinterested, or discontented residents and owners.

This course is approved by the Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) to fulfill continuing education requirements for the CMCA® certification.  This course will earn managers  (1) continuing education credit hour, which also help satisfy the requirements to apply for the PCAM designation.
