The CooperatorEvents  Expo Returns to Rosemont

Whether you’re a manager or a board member, running a co-op, condo, or HOA has never been an easy job. There’s always a capital project to fund, a contractor to hire, a dispute to resolve, a leak to repair … the list can feel endless. 

That’s why CooperatorEvents is thrilled to be at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont on Wednesday, June 12 for the 2024 Chicagoland Spring Expo, and we think you will be, too! If you’ve joined us for previous shows, you know there’s just no other event that puts you right in front of the vendors and service providers your building or HOA needs every day, all in one place—and for FREE! 

And if this will be your first Expo, welcome! You can look forward to networking with peers and colleagues, shopping for services, learning about the latest multifamily innovations, and attending free seminars led by industry pros. Whatever brings you to the show, time at the Expo is always time well spent. You can register ahead of time at

Boot Camp for Boards

The Expo always features a roster of free seminars and panel discussions covering issues of interest and import to boards, managers, and residents alike—and the 2024 show is no exception. Throughout the day, Expo attendees will have the opportunity to hear the latest on everything from late-breaking legislation and legal issues to orienting newly-elected board members, directly from professionals working in the field.

Leading the Charge—Electric Vehicle Charging & Your Community

Electric vehicles (EVs) are more than just a trend—and as their numbers increase nationwide, many multifamily communities are scrambling to keep up with the infrastructure and safety concerns EVs bring with them. This expert panel will give attendees a broad overview of both the technical and financial aspects of making their properties more EV-friendly, including the new ComEd rebate program and types of EV charging solutions, charger installation options for both low- and high-rise buildings, both deeded/assigned and open parking spaces, infrastructure financing options including revenue sharing, and more, with time for audience Q&A.

Cash, or Charge?—Reserve Budgeting & Funding

The prospect of funding a major capital project can be intimidating; the stakes are high, and so are the numbers. This expert panel will help dispel some of that anxiety with an in-depth exploration of how your building or HOA can fortify its reserves and pay for the big-ticket items that inevitably arise. Topics to be discussed include basic terms, funding sources, loan eligibility and structure, how special assessments fit in with loans, and the step-by-step lending process itself.

CooperatorEvents Chicagoland

2:30pm - 3:30pm - Room 1

Keeping the Peace—Conflict 

Management Tips for Boards & Property Managers

Conflict management skills are part of every good manager and board member’s toolkit—especially in this era of social media and heightened cultural tensions. Between defusing hostility at meetings, coping with the impact of platforms like Nextdoor and Yelp, and understanding what constitutes ‘harassment’ and how to deal with it, community administrators have a lot on their plates. This expert panel will discuss practical methods for maintaining order and decorum at meetings, ‘talking down’ emotional situations, and the limits of boards’ and managers’ legal obligation to intervene in an array of conflict situations.
