In conjunction with last week’s post about the importance of industry events, Account Executive Karen Quennell presents the must-attend events in the Property Management industry of 2012:
It is my firm belief that if you are going to work in the Property Management Industry that you must understand the industry and immediately get involved.
Both CAA Contra Costa and CAA Tri-County have well-rounded programs that provide networking and educational events.
Once a year you get a chance to make a difference by attending the Legislative Conference where you get a chance to personally meet with your individual state legislators and get first-hand knowledge on state legislative proposals targeted at the rental housing industry. This event will be held on Wednesday, February 15th at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento.
Last year both CAA Contra Costa and CAA Tri Country conducted Reverse Trade shows that have been beneficial to the Industry Partners and the Property Management Companies. This year promises to be a sellout event with six new property management companies that have signed up. It will be held at Concord Hilton on February 23rd.
The 23rd Annual CAA Tri-County Golf Tournament will be held in June 2012 at the Palo Alto Golf Club. This is a fundraiser to assist the Housing Industry Foundation.
One of my favorites not to be missed is the CAA Expo “Go for the Gold” Trade Show being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center scheduled on April 25th. This event offers educational seminars and a chance to visit with over 100 industry partner booths.
Don’t forget to save the date for the Ninth Annual GEMM Award Celebration being held on August 23rd at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. This is a fabulous event that honors the Best of the Best for 2012.
The Housing Industry Foundation holds The Bay area’s premier Multifamily networking event on Thursday, September 6th . This is their annual summit to raise funds to help prevent homelessness.
These are just a few of the numerous opportunities to support and learn about the Property Management Industry. Get out there and enjoy, learn, and network!
