Henry Goodman, Esq. of Goodman, Shapiro & Lombardi, LLC and Mark Einhorn, Esq. of Marcus, Errico, Emmer & Brooks, P.C. co-presented a talk at the New England Condominium EXPO held on May 22, 2018 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA.

Their topic focused on the importance of bringing condominium documents up-to-date, enumerating many areas where documents are weak or defective due to amendments to the statutes and related laws; changes in practices, (such as in insurance and the lending industries); certain practical issues that have vexed associations; along with court decisions that have left distinct impressions on law and practice.

One of the key topics touched upon by Goodman was the importance of conducting orderly and efficient meetings of both Boards and Homeowners. He suggested that the use of parliamentary rules of order were quite complex and recommended a simpler set of rules. He provided a handout explaining them, along with some pointers on conducting orderly and efficient meetings; however, due to the unexpectedly large turnout, Goodman had to assure attendees that he would post his “Goodman’s Rules of Order” on the website for those desiring to download them.
