DAVID BOSTON PRESENTED WITH COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION MANAGER OF THE YEAR
Norwich, Vermont -
The New England Chapter of the Community Associations Institute(CAI) awarded David Boston of TPW Management with Manager of the Year. The Community Associations Institute New England Banquet was held in Waltham, MA on March 2, 2012. In attendance were CAI members, which include community association board members and other interested homeowners, professional managers, management companies, builders and developers and businesses that provide products and services to community associations.
2011 CAI-NE chapter president Beth Tramontozzi presented the award. This distinction was awarded to that community association manager nominated for going above and beyond the call of duty. Tramontozzi noted that this years recipient of the Manager of the Year award also faced unprecedented challenges in the after math of the natural disaster known as Hurricane Irene. David was nominated by several peers and colleagues, one nomination best described the devastation noting While most people watched the national news showing the floods in Vermont washing away 100 year old covered bridges, few viewers thought about the crushing challenge this would be for a manager with dozens of properties and 1,000s of families to protect. Floods washed out town and state roads; massive propane tanks floated down mountainsides and main streets; families were left without electricity and drinkable water; and management staff were unable to reach residents using conventional transportation.
Tramontozzi concluded the presentation by stating, Prior planning and the ability to be creative where no plan could have existed, this award recipient not only survived the crisis, but in fact shined in the face of disaster. For managing response plans that required accessing air transportation to reach homeowners, working creatively with insurance companies to obtain millions of dollars for recovery efforts, and effectively implementing technology to communicate with resident owners in Vermont and hundreds more residing out of state, we applaud David Boston and his colleagues from TPW Management for their actions in protecting owners and their communities.
