Strategic Plan

The Council adopted a new strategic plan, organized along four time horizons, which confirmed the Institute's long-standing core ideology while incorporating a new branding statement: "IREM's brand and identity of excellence will be based on providing indispensable, leading-edge programs and services." The full plan can be found on the IREM Web site under the "About IREM" tab.

The Council also discussed and prioritized results of a three-question scanning survey about future business challenges, solutions for business problems and "must have" IREM programs and services. The results of the prioritization will be used to shape development of products and services as well as communication about existing member resources.

New Student and Academic Member Categories

The Council approved two new forms of membership in support of the Institute's strategy to "develop and implement an outreach program to interest students and others making career decisions in pursuing a career in real estate management."

Full-time students attending an accredited college or university will be able to join the Institute as Student Members for $40 per academic year and receive JPM, discounts and access to services on the IREMFirst site. Chapters will be encouraged to reach out to this member group of future professionals. At the same time, faculty at colleges and universities may join IREM as Academic Members for $195 in annual dues and also receive JPM, discounts and access to services on the IREMFirst site.

Legislative and Public Policy Statements

* The Council adopted a new policy statement on Small Business Health Plans. This supports proposals to allow bona fide associations to offer health insurance coverage to their members under a single set of federally prescribed rules.

* The Council modified two existing policies:

** IREM's policy statement on the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was expanded to include responses to specific questions that will have an impact on comments on proposed changes to regulations.

The new and revised legislative and public policy statements can be found on the IREM Web site under the Public Policy tab.

Ethics and Discipline Committee

The Board of Ethical Inquiry reviewed four new cases. One case will be forwarded for hearing and two were dismissed. In the fourth case, a member's CPM status will be terminated under the bylaws for criminal sexual abuse subject to a show cause hearing, if requested. Two of the new cases involved CPM Members, one an ARM candidate and one an AMO firm. Additional evidence in a case involving a CPM Member was reviewed under old business and the Board voted to forward that case for hearing. Four membership applications were reviewed and will be returned for processing. …
