SUBJECT: TEACHING MANHATTAN SUPERS NEW SKILLS
(New York, NY) - Nearly
two-thirds of the city's housing was built before 1947, according to the New
York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
With new technology and repairs constantly being implemented into these
buildings and new housing being built everyday, building superintendents
need to update their skills to keep up. Until now, they’ve never had a
resource in Manhattan. Now, Manhattan supers have a way to network and
update their skills.
The Superintendents Technical Association has added its first-ever Manhattan
Chapter. The Association provides skill-improvement workshops and monthly
meetings to a larger group of resident managers, supers, porters, handymen
and other building support personnel in NYC.
The first Manhattan monthly meeting is on Tuesday March 23, 2004 at 6:00 pm
at the Top of the Times, 255 W. 43rd Street and is open to both supers and
tenants. There is no admission fee. In addition to monthly meetings, the
Association conducts workshops on such timely and useful subjects as
plumbing and resume writing, and is doing extensive work on a
Superintendents Curriculum, with an eye toward a program for licensing all
New York City Supers.
The Superintendents Technical Association is a registered non-profit
educational organization dedicated to the education and professionalism of
building superintendents, resident managers, handymen and porters and other
multi-family building support personnel in the New York City region. The
Association has at the heart of its mission statement a desire to "...bring
dignity and respect to the building maintenance profession", and sends out a
free monthly newsletter to over 2000 recipients in the multi-family building
