Statement of Vision:
From the Desk of the President
Dear North Florida Chapter 35 Members and Friends:
The IREM North Florida Chapter had a very successful 2012. Your President, Brian Davies, led the Chapter with dedication, professionalism and enthusiasm. Once again, North Florida Chapter 35 was recognized as a Five-Star Chapter by IREM International.
What does this mean to you? It means that your Chapter not only meets but, exceeds IREM Headquarters high standards of ethics, goals, responsibilities, leadership participation and membership. The involvement, generosity and participation of our Friends far surpasses Chapters much larger than ours.
I am honored to serve as your Chapter President for 2013. The Executive Committee has planned an awesome year of events and educational opportunities for our members and Friends. In January, we are excited to have our experts in multi-family, retail and office provide a state of the industry update. The Education Committee is planning multiple courses for the year including Ethics for the Real Estate Manager (ETH800), Investment Real Estate: Financial Tools (FIN402) and Sustainable Real Estate Management (SRM001). If you are close to obtaining your ARM or CPM designation then you do not want to miss the opportunity to attend our Ethics class in 2013.
I would like to personally thank Betsy Bullard, Regional Vice President for attending our November Chapter meeting and installing our 2013 Officers. Also, she recognized our 2013 Executive Council, Board Members and installed our newest CPM member, Brice Pelfrey.
Before we end 2012, in December, we will be holding our annual Holiday Party at Bold City Grille on December 11th at 6 p.m. We will be collecting presents for "Toys for Tots" and distributing before the Holidays. Our Charitable committee chair, Ben Ziegler, has events planned throughout the year to help the homeless, children and seniors. Your participation would be very much appreciated by your Chapter and those in need.
I look forward to increasing participation on our membership committee. As members, we all serve on this important committee so, let's work together to increase our membership in 2013. It is a personal goal of mine to increase membership by 10% in 2013 and with your help, I feel certain this goal is achievable!
Brenda Pritchard, CPM
