From the Desk of the President

Dear North Florida Chapter 35 Members and Friends:

The IREM North Florida Chapter had another very successful year.  Brenda Pritchard, Past President, did an outstanding job as President.

With the end of the year and New Year’s resolution approaching, it’s the perfect time to re-define your commitment to IREM.  In 2014 there will be many opportunities to become involved.  You can mentor a Candidate, join a committee, attend a Webinar or participate in our community service project.  If you have never attended an IREM conference I strongly urge you to go to either the Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. or the Fall Conference which will be held in Orlando this year.  You do not have to be an officer and any IREM member can attend.  Since the Fall Conference will be held in Orlando this year this is the perfect conference for first timers.   You can register for the conferences on line at www.irem.org.    The Conferences are a great opportunity to network with other real estate professionals and become more involved.

We were honored to have Joe Greenblatt, National IREM President, attend our November 2013 luncheon.  In additional to installing the 2014 Officers Joe Greenblatt shared with us the strategic vision of IREM and benefits of IREM membership.  Our annual State of Industry luncheon will be held on January 14th with guest panelists Geneva Henderson, Jack Garnett and Steve Lear.  The Education Committee will be hosting PROP OPS I (HRS/MNT) in Jacksonville on March 11th thru 15th and Eth800 in Tallahassee, FL on June 18th.

I look forward to serving IREM and Chapter 35 as President in 2014 and hope to see everyone in Orlando this year!
