30 Under 30, Eight Years LaterFebruary 27, 2017
| Emily Goodman-Shortall CPM ARM
Editor's note: IREM is recognizing the next generation of real estate management leaders with a selection of top 30 Under 30 members, to be featured in the July/August 2017 issue of JPM.
We last published a 30 Under 30 recognition in 2009. We followed up with one of those featured, Emily Goodman-Shortall, to see what she has been up to since receiving the recognition and how being named a 30 Under 30 has helped her career.
It’s hard to believe that it has been 8 years since the last 30 under 30 in JPM. I had my profile piece framed and it hangs proudly in my office. I was so proud to have been named in that group and I list the accomplishment on my resume. It sure does get potential employers’ and clients’ attention.
I am ecstatic to report that I have remained active in IREM, serving on the Executive Committee and as Regional Vice President, as well as several other chair and co-chair positions. In addition, my involvement with IREM—especially early in my career—opened up avenues for professional growth that helped shape my career in important ways. Professionally since my profile appeared in the 30 under 30, I have been promoted several times in my former organization and have started my own firm. As a direct result of the 30 under 30 feature, I have been asked to speak at countless industry-related events, and have been identified as a mentor to some incredible up-and-coming CPMs.
Volunteer service with IREM drew me deeper into the community and introduced me to colleagues who have become lifelong friends. IREM meetings and conferences further expanded opportunities for networking and collaboration, which allowed my work to be more productive and successful. Many of the most important turning points in my career can be traced back to my membership with IREM. I was talking with a longtime member a few months ago about why he enjoys his volunteer service with IREM so much. His words struck me as clear and on target. He said, “The Institute is not here to give you things. The Institute is here to help you get the most out of your professional career.” I think there are thousands CPMs who would agree with this, and who have experienced firsthand the value of being part of an organization that represents an incredible community of property management professionals.
The 2017 IREM 30 Under 30 nomination deadline is February 28, 2017. Nominate yourself or an eligible colleague today!
