Elizabeth Carpenter, RHA President talks about landlord education and board activities.
Back to School Already?
Wait a minute here! Wasn’t it just summer? Where’d those clouds come from? I’m not ready for another back to school commercial on TV. Argh! Like you, I’m not ready for summer to be over.
Here at the RHA, we had a big summer. We launched our new community room by having a party called Under A Starry Night here at the RHA headquarters. Then we had our annual picnic. Our board of directors started “Thank you events,” which is where we visit the companies who support us, by bringing coffee and donuts to their office to say thank you for all they do for our membership. We’ve been busy, and like you, we’d rather have another month of summer.
Landlord education at the RHA is something that goes on 12 months a year. The summer months July thru August bring fewer classes, but during the fall we get back into the swing of things with a long list of class options. The Landlord tenant law, Understanding your Decision Point Webinar, Understanding Renter’s Liability Insurance and certainly Tenant Screening are all scheduled this month. It takes just a few minutes to join our classes, they can make a vast difference in making the right decisions for your business. Our staff and instructors are friendly, experienced, and we do something few other schools can brag about: We have fun.
When you drive into our office, you’ll see our new branding on our new sign! You’ll see our new look in the office and the larger classroom/meeting room space. All that work is to have our members not so much see newness, but feel what is happening at RHA. We have become a fully focused member service organization whose sole purpose is making sure our members succeed.
For us at the RHA, landlord education is fundamental. It is what we do, what sets us apart. Come in, take a look around, See your RHA in action. I know you’ll feel what we’ve worked so hard to create.
