2013 and my first of two years as President of IREM Greater RI Chapter 88 is soaring by! At times there have been a whirlwind of Chapter activities and goings on and other times the journey has been a relaxing and enjoyable one. I am happy to report that our Chapter is on as solid a footing as it ever has been as events continue to be well attended and feedback continues to be positive. In fact, we continue to achieve our goals and objectives by using our own unique innovative concepts as well as tried and true IREM methods to offer industry leading educational opportunities for property management professionals, promote IREM credential awareness and best practices as well as provide meaningful networking and membership experiences.
Our focus on creating “value” for our members via a wide array of offerings makes it possible for our chapter to retain so many members year in and year out and bolsters our efforts to attract new members and provide leadership to the real estate community.
Our successful Chapter Mentorship Program, informational Podcasts and widely attended “Brown Bag” seminars and “Table 88” roundtable discussions are just some of the ways we reach out to members. Do you have an idea or a suggestion you would like to make to improve our chapter? I am always eager to discuss Chapter business and I encourage you to contact me or leave a comment on the Chapter 88 Open Forum page. It continues to be my pleasure serving the Chapter as its President. The best part of the experience has been working with all the talented and tireless volunteers, Executive Council members, committee members, Friends of IREM and Chapter IAE, Janet Monaghan. Thank you one and all for your contributions!
