Thank you for your attendance!

Thank you to the more than 260-chapter leaders and IREM® who attended the 2022 Chapter Leadership Retreat. Our leaders joined us in this three-day retreat to enhance their chapter roles and develop themselves as professionals and real estate managers. Special thanks to our members who dropped in on our Government Affairs breakout session “Why Advocacy is Important & How to Get Your Chapter Advocacy Program Started”. The panel session discussed reasons why it is important to build long-term relationships with decision makers at the federal, state, and local level.
