Happy Thanksgiving from the Staff at IREM! We wish everyone a happy (and safe!) holiday

2021 Advocacy Impact Day

Given the current conditions and uncertainty as a result of COVID-19 and keeping our members health and safety top of mind, we’ve decided to convert the Capitol Hill Fly-in into a one-day virtual event called Advocacy Impact Day. While we’re all disappointed that we’ll not be able to meet in person, we will use this opportunity to elevate the event not only by making it more accessible than ever, but also by incorporating a more robust program.

Please feel free to share with your IREM colleagues so they can join this exciting and dynamic event!


Webinar: A Look Back at 2020 & a Look Forward to the Opportunities & Challenges for Advocacy in 2021

2020 has been a very challenging year for property managers – you’ve had to deal with a multitude of issues including eviction moratoriums, rental assistance, and mortgage forbearance. Join the IREM legislative team for a dynamic session addressing all the issues you had to deal with in 2020 and a look forward to the opportunities and challenges facing the property management industry in 2021.
