How would I make a difference by serving as an RVP?

Referred to by many as “the best job in IREM”, serving as an RVP is a unique leadership opportunity and a privilege to support and represent the chapters within a region. You will professionally and personally benefit:

  • Develop your leadership skills
  • Enhance your network of industry contacts
  • Increase your visibility within IREM and the real estate management profession
  • Identify and mentor the next-gen of IREM leaders
  • Collaborate with your peers from around the country
  • Support the growth of IREM
  • Have fun!

What would be my commitment as RVP?

RVPs are a critical connection between IREM Headquarters and its chapters and among the chapters. To fulfill that role, you would provide ongoing monitoring, guidance, coaching, and support of the chapters in the region. In addition, you would need to attend the following during your two-year term:

  • IREM Regional Meeting
  • IREM Global Summit
  • Monthly virtual meetings
  • At least one visit annually to each chapter within the region

IREM provides funding for chapter visits (up to two per year, per chapter as necessary). Registration and travel expenses for the Regional Meetings and annual IREM meeting are the responsibility of the RVP; however, many regions provide some funding from among the chapters for these expenses.

What are the roles and responsibilities of an RVP?
  • Serve on the RVP Committee, comprised of 13 RVPs from around the country, the President-Elect who serves as Chair, and a Vice Chair.
  • Contribute to IREM’s mission and strategic goals as an ex-officio Governing Councillor.
  • Serve as conduit and ambassador between your chapters and IREM Headquarters.
  • Strengthen partnerships, communications, collaborations, and consistency between IREM at the national level and chapters and among the chapters in the region.
  • Serve as a strategic advisor to chapter leaders and IREM Association Executives (IAEs) on issues related to:
    • Goals and strategic planning
    • Financial management
    • Leadership and governance
    • Industry engagement
    • Membership
    • Branding and communications
    • Administration
  • Reinforce and promote the IREM Minimum Standards and Chapter Best Practices as the fundamental components of running a strong chapter.
  • Represent the IREM brand and encourage chapters to activate brand value through messaging and member benefits and experiences.
  • Communicate alignment and relevancy between the IREM strategic plan and chapter operations.
  • Be a sounding board and trouble-shooter for chapters when called upon to do so.

How and when are RVPs chosen?

  • All interested members must submit an application.
  • Each applicant is interviewed by phone with a member of the Nominating Committee.
  • At the IREM Global Summit in Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale, FL, September 26-29, 2018, the Nominating Committee reviews applications and chooses the slate of nominees.
  • In October-November 2018, nominees are notified by phone by the Nominating Committee Chair; those not nominated are also notified.
  • The slate of RVP nominees is published in the 2019 March/April issue of JPM and announced at each 2019 Regional Meeting.
  • At the IREM Global Summit in San Francisco, CA, September 23-26, 2019, the Governing Council elects the new RVPs from the slate of nominees.
  • The two-year term becomes effective on September 26, 2019.
