Queens Co-op / New BoardMar 21, 2007


I was recently elected to the role of President for our 100 unit co-op in Kew Gardens. In an effort to do things different than the previous prez, I'd like to enlist the services of a consultant to help make our board more effecient in handling issues; thereby making our shareholders happier through expanded communications, customer service, mgmt. comp. liasons, and new amenities.
Does a company like this exist, or do I have to do this in a piecemeal fashion by way of research, trial and error?

Consultant for a new pres? - BP Mar 22, 2007


Rather than hire a consultant to find ways of doing things differently and improving board-shareholder relations, I'd brainstorm with your board and mgmt, talk to other boards, and research articles for Habitat, The Cooperator and the CNYC first. This might save you money that could be better spent elsewhere. Also, I'd wonder if shareholders would question a need to spend money for a consultant and if the board/mmgt aren't knowledgeable or creative enough to come up with approaches/idea on their own. Just my opinion.

Mr Rutherford,

I think your building is fortunate to have someone like you
take over. You have come into your new position with the
proper attitude. "How do we do it better"
I have been on my Board for 15 years, 10 as President, I am now retired and would be happy to share my experiences with you! In any case I wish you the best of luck! Best RBG
