About the formation of the Supers Technical Association of New York (formerly Supers Club of New York)


The Superintendents Technical Association was organized in March 1998 to fill a gap in the knowledge base of multifamily building maintenance personnel: Directors of Maintenance, Superintendents, Handypersons and Porters.

We believe it to be the first technical society of its kind, and its models are the technical societies of engineers that conduct monthly meetings and issue publications to keep their members up to date in matters pertaining to their professions.

For the benefit of visitors to this website from those outside the New York City area, the title Superintendent is synonymous with Custodian, Caretaker or other such designation, indicating the person responsible for the maintenance and operation of the physical plant.

Often called "Super," he (rarely she) may work alone or be in charge of a maintenance staff that includes a handyman, porters and, in luxury buildings, doormen and a concierge.

The responsibilities of building superintendents are becoming more highly technical as the technology of building operations becomes more complex, and more critical as efficiency of building operations affect housing's "bottom line", due to ever higher energy, water and building maintenance costs.

On the other side of the coin are buildings' generation of atmospheric pollution. Hence, the professionalizing of supers increases in importance.

How To Contact Us
The Association was organized by Apartment House Institute of New York City Technical College. Its director, Dick Koral, serves as the Association's Secretary/Treasurer. Click here for contact information.

There are now three chapters of the Association, and each meets monthly except as otherwise indicated on our Calendar Page.

Guests are always welcome at Club meetings. There is no charge for attendance, so feel free to come whether or not you're a member, and invite whom you wish.
