I’m a cheerleading Mom. In the last 5 years, I’ve hauled 2 teenage girls to countless games and cheerleading events all over the Northwest. I love supporting my daughters Frances and Alexis. The first requirement to being in high school cheerleading is good grades. In my family, education is always first, cheerleading second.
At RHA Oregon, education is priority one. We create value by teaching our members how to make their rental businesses profitable, how to be a better or even a first time successful landlord, why something as mundane as building codes are important, turnover technics, and our online tenant screening just to mention a few.
When our members make better business decisions, more people are served and our entire industry does better. This month, take an extra moment with the calendar and look for classes that could help you better your business. Like a cheerleader, RHA Oregon is here to serve its members and encourage, make that root for, their victory.
Another victory we are working towards is closing the gap between homelessness and the housing community. Rental Housing Alliance members are volunteering at JOIN; a Portland based non-profit.
“This is a marriage made in heaven,” said Lynne Whitney, RHA board member. “Filling this need, being part of the community, serving people who need a hand into housing, is our motivation. It’s who we are. What is so impressive about JOIN is how thorough the organization is in helping people. We came to help serve 60 people, but left with such a warm impression and feeling of graciousness.”
Lynne Whitney and Tony Kavanagh RHA Community Relations/Donations Chairman got the ball rolling and now we are inviting all RHA members to join in. Please call the office for more information.
Did you know at the RHA Dinner meetings we highlight a RHA Affiliate Businesses? It’s a great way for the RHA community to support the businesses that support our industry.
We’ve had a lot of changes at RHA and none of it would have happened without our committed volunteer Board of Directors and our staff. If you see one of them, please thank them for all the extra hours and extra heart they’ve given in the last few months.
RHA Oregon is moving forward, growing, and focused on serving our members through education. We mentor; come along side, and coach. Creating member value, serving our community, and helping businesses grow- we’re your RHA.
