"As professionals, I’m sure we all take pride in the work we do day-to-day at our jobs. But the time I’ve spent with IREM as a committee member and Chair, is without a doubt some of the most gratifying. The investment I’ve made in this organization has been returned to me ten-fold. Best of all, there are opportunities for all who step forward; ARMs, CPMs, ACoMs or Associate Members – all are welcomed and encouraged to share their unique points of view. IREM gives everyone the opportunity to make a difference"
