HIGHLIGHTS FROM NYREC'S
MEETING WITH HPD

On Monday, September 29th, a delegation from NYREC (Gordon Bell, Dawanna Williams, Eric Toro, Ed Poteat, and Manny Burgos) met with the senior management of HPD, including new commissioner, Vicki Been. Of all NYREC's meetings with various policy makers, elected officials, etc. this was by far the most productive and exciting to date. NYREC has its work cut out for it over the next few months to partner with HPD in areas like MWBE outreach, working with the faith-based community, assisting with enhancing the Acquisition Loan Fund, and more, including a firm agenda for our overdue follow-up with NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR DETAILS ON NEXT STEPS!

Wednesday, October 1 through Thursday, October 2, 2014, at Empire State Plaza in Albany. You can register online. There are still plenty of hotel rooms available in Albany, too. Even if you can't stay overnight consider attending as a day trip.

NO WORK ZONE

Our late August No Work Zone was a big success! Our next one is in the works. Senior management has agreed to come out and enjoy a few hours of fellowship with us, especially since shop talk is banned! Stay tuned for the next date, time, and location.
 

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE
FROM NYREC'S CHAIR

Please join me in congratulating Manny Burgos as he expands his business, By the Numbers Consulting Services, and embarks on new endeavors in the world of community relations, real estate development and political activism.  His numerous successes with NYREC include a bevy of new real estate development clients, political advisory services, including advanced data analysis, and the recent inclusion of the territory of Puerto Rico in his business repertoire. It saddens us that we must accept Manny’s resignation as NYREC Executive Director and begin our relationship with him as Special Advisor to NYREC. In the end though, everyone wins, in that NYREC’s true potency is the collective strength of our membership and allies.  

Congratulations Manny Burgos!!! Our strength is in our membership and allies like you.

In an effort to provide consistent executive leadership, the NYREC Board has appointed an Interim Executive Director.  Please join me in welcoming Francilia Wilkins.  She is more than just another impressive MBA with real estate development and client experience, she is already well known to many NYREC members.  Francilia has agreed to sit in the director’s chair for an interim period with the goal of enhancing communication among NYREC members and pushing the NYREC agenda in a forward direction.  Many of us had the pleasure of meeting Francilia Wilkins at our most recent NO WORK ZONE, where she demonstrated extremely positive multi-tasking skills with our membership, i.e. carrying on several conversations at once over cocktails.  

It is a pleasure to announce our expanded team.

Gordon P Bell
Board Chair, NYREC
