Happy Friday! Spring is officially just a few days away, and we just know the weather is going to get with the program any day now (hey, at least it’s lighter at night…in theory). It’s time for us to check in on the events being held over the next few months that can help you make connections and continue to grow as a landlord or property manager. Maybe we’ll see you there!
March 27th: The RHA Presents ‘Solving Problems with Tenants’
This seminar will be presented by Sue Lewis, CPM. She’s got the info on how to save time and money when handling resident issues, resulting in happier tenants and landlords alike. You’ll learn when to take which actions, including making a call or deal, sending notices, and seeking legal advice–and all in just three short hours. The seminar runs from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on the 27th and costs $45.00. Learn more here.
April 24th: WMFHA’s 2013 Maintenance Summit
WMFHA themselves say it best: “Service teams are the backbone of the multifamily industry. Day in and day out, our techs, groundskeepers, lead techs and maintenance supervisors keep our residents happy and our properties running smoothly.” This event is all about the service teams, featuring the annual Maintenance Mania competition and a total of nine classes focused on technical skills and leadership. The day runs from 8:00 to 4:00 at the Tukwila Community Center, and costs $69 for members ($99 for non-members) to register. Check it out on their website.
Also April 24th: King County’s ‘Go Green 13’ Sustainability Conference
While your service teams are at WMFHA’s event, you may want to check out King County’s annual Go Green conference, a day of “sustainability training and dialogue on building a green economy in the Puget Sound region.” Any business can go green in their practices and philosophies, and there’s no time like the present to expand your knowledge and your network when it comes to sustainability. The conference runs from 8:30 to 5:00, at the Conference Center on 8th at Pike St., with a reception to follow. Early-bird admission is $150; find out more about the event here.
May 8th: The RHA Presents their New Landlord Orientation
Welcome into the fold, all you new landlords out there! While you’ve already got a leg up if you’re reading the blog, there can never be too much good information–and the RHA regularly presents this workshop on the ins and outs of property management. This crash course in landlord/tenant law and other important aspects of the job runs just an hour and a half, from 3-4:30 p.m. Registration is free–check it out here.
June 8th: The Washington Landlord Association’s Spring Conference
The Washington Landlord Association’s annual Spring Conference is a great way to branch out and cover a lot of topics in the course of a single day. This year’s conference will be held at the la Quinta Inn in Tacoma, and will cover topics including government partnership, security services for landlords, detecting water damage, and estate management. You don’t have to be a member to attend, and fees range from $30 to $40 depending on when you register. Check it out here.
