Meeting Highlights

Article excerpt

More than 600 IREM members came together at the Westin Kierland Resort in beautiful Scottsdale, Ariz., in November 2005 to attend the IREM Education Conference. The conference offered learning labs, discussion panels, a property tour of Kierland Commons and many opportunities to network with peers over golf and other social outings. More than 20 education sessions were offered on topics from capital markets and international trade to motivating your staff and disaster planning.

Plan ahead and join in on the fun next year: IREM will partner with CCIM to produce a joint conference in Tampa, Fla., October 20-21, 2006.

Governing Council approves new programs for 2006

IREM's governing body--Governing Council--approved many new initiatives for 2006, including the following:

* IREM will create a new credential--the Accredited Commercial Manager (ACM)--especially for commercial site managers who manage smaller portfolios of at least 20,000 square feet. Certification is slated to launch by late 2006.

* IREM will move forward in researching a new certification for international condominium managers, and a business plan will be presented at the IREM Leadership and Legislative Summit in April 2006.

* The CPM and ARM codes of ethics will be combined into one code to carry a clear and powerful message to the marketplace that IREM members uphold the highest ethical standards. A draft of the new code will be posted on www.irem.org for member review and feedback.

* Additional funding was approved so IREMFIRST (For Information, Resources, Solutions and Training) will continue to grow and evolve.
