Reminder: The Rooftops Conference NYC 2013

Rooftop SMThe Rooftops Conference NYC 2013, to be held on Friday, April 19, is our third annual symposium focused on the not-for-profit sector and the role of real estate–owned, leased, or hosted physical space–in the operations, financial performance, and achievement of mission by not-for-profit organizations of all sizes and mission types.

Panelists and presenters from the not-for-profit sector, government, the real estate industry, and the professions will explore diverse themes of direct relevance to not-for-profits. This year’s topics will include: lessons in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy; the links between markets, mission, and property strategies; the role of project management in construction and renovations both large and small; achieving and preserving property tax exemptions; effective design, selection, and management of event spaces; sustainability from the perspective of owner and tenant; and federal and state not-for-profit legal compliance in the context of property decisions. We will also extend our ongoing discussion of the social and economic impacts of not-for-profits as urban neighbors in the broader community.

The Conference is a forum for meaningful discussion and also a chance to interact with peers in the social sector and the real estate industry. Whether you are involved in real estate and space decisions for your organization every day or once in a while, you’ll hear something new that may validate, challenge, or even change your approach. Save the date and join us!
