The HDFC workshops are:


6. Ask UHAB: Managing Your HDFC: Board Elections, and When the 60/40 Requirement Ends (Morning session)


Operating and maintaining a successful HDFC co-op takes time, effort, and commitment. In this interactive class, UHAB staff members will discuss Elections, and the process to satisfy the 60/40 security agreement. Topics will include accountability, communication between the board and shareholders and tips to ensure successful operation of your HDFC co-op. 


106. Increase Participation and Avoid Burnout in your Co-op! (Midday Session)


In this interactive class, UHAB staff members will discuss a matter important to any co-op whether HDFC co-ops or other co-ops: how to encourage every member of the co-op to participate. Topics addressed will include strategies to get shareholders involved in the co-op, how to establish effective committees to handle co-op management and duties, annual elections and training new board members, and tips to prep for and hold effective meetings that emphasize communication, transparency, community building, and decision-making.


206. Local Law 64 and Legal Matters for Your HDFC Co-op (Afternoon session)

Attorneys Erica Buckley and Benjamin Flavin will discuss legal matters pertaining to HDFC cooperatives, including an update on Local Law 64 to implement a lottery-style process for marketing units and what it may mean for your HDFC; marketing apartment sales; steps to take when shareholders pass on; and how to address new local laws on smoking policy and conflict of interest policy.
