For nearly three decades National Real Estate Investors Association (NREIA) has offered an opportunity for affiliated associations to compete for “Awards of Excellence” and well as “Honors of Merit”.  All awards are presented at the Mid-Year Leadership Conference, in June of each year.   Some previous venues for this conference were Seattle, Pittsburgh, Denver, and Minneapolis, in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, respectively, and we have had one or two representatives at each.  While it is mandatory that at least one leader from each Chapter attend, we love it when other leaders participate. Interested? Let us know!

This year, our representatives were Andrew Lietzow, Exec Dir, and Leslie Couture, who joined IaREIA in 2015, as an administrative assistant.

So what now? New Pledges, Same Politics

IaREIA - Iowa Landlord Association Conference in Council Bluffs - Oct 16-18

Senator Gronstal, Majority Leader of the Iowa Senate — Speaks at the IaREIA – Iowa Landlord Association Conference in Council Bluffs – Oct 16-18

On our first evening of our Fall Educational Conference 2014 in Council Bluffs, Senator Gronstal spent significant time with real estate investor leaders in Iowa.  He fielded questions about, 1) legislative priorities2) term limits, and 3) a brief discussion of eFiling services for members a complaint filed about the “Unauthorized Practice of Law”.

Sen. Gronstal felt very relaxed with our group.  He reminded us of the importance of building relationships with our Senators and Representatives, whether seasoned incumbents or brand new this next session.

The value of having contacts with a great deal of experience in public office was evident.   He left with a reminder that our Senators and Representatives need to hear from us because we are their best industry contacts.  We’re the most informed, continually sharping our skill set with education, and vigilant in building positive relationships which is beneficial for our industry constituents in Iowa and Nebraska, too!

Dan Firestone & CIC – Background checks worth the money?

Dan FirestoneIn this interview, conducted July 29, 2014, Andrew Lietzow with IaREIA-ILA interviews Dan Firestone.

Topics discussed:

  • The Fair Credit Reporting Act and and the simple steps property managers can take to eliminate any concerns about compliance with the administrative requirements
