Letter from the President

  Happy New Year to all Rockford Apartment Association members and their families! Another year came and went as fast as a blink of an eye! It’s so amazing. Since my last letter we have had another great meeting and a wonderful Christmas Party commonly known as our “Winter Mixer”.

  In November our topic was “The Eviction Process”. We had a three member panel which included myself, Tim Hoffman, and Jerry Glawe. Thanks to Jerry and Tim for sharing their expertise with the membership. Larry Mills our Program Director led the meeting with a series of questions involving the eviction process. Each of us on the panel shared our many years of experience in handling evictions from how to avoid them, and how to weave our way through the court system. Hopefully the standing room only members and guest’s found it informative and entertaining.

  Our Winter Mixer was a success as usual. Again we gathered at Midway Village to enjoy an evening of great food and comradery. Our Winter Mixer is meant to bring all us together for one evening to meet other RAA members, and to share the wealth of knowledge and ideas relating to our business with each other. We had extra entertainment this Christmas as Muffy provided a little fun and games having board members perform a skit. I can tell you, none of us knew what we were in for, but it was lots of fun! Thank you Muffy for all that fun and all the hard work you and your volunteers do to make it such a wonderful evening. I’m telling you she doesn’t get enough credit. Please thank her if you see her!

  Starting the New Year out, we will host a Home Rule forum January 10th 2018 at Midway Village starting at 6:00pm. City of Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara will address the membership. The purpose of this forum is let the Mayor talk about why he supports Home Rule and what it would mean for the city of Rockford if it passed or not passed by the voters in March. We are inviting all landlords whether they are RAA members or not. The larger the turn out the better.

  Our regular meeting January 16th will be held in our normal meeting location. Rockford Area Association of Realtors building located at 6776 East State St. Rockford IL. Our meeting topic will be “Property Standards” and our guest speakers will be City of Rockford Neighborhoods Standards Supervisor Rob Wilhelmi and Assistant City Attorney & Blight Reduction Officer Matt Flores. They will be talking about the aspects of keeping your property properly maintained, what city property codes require, the violation process and how they are handled.

                                    Happy New Year
and I hope to see you all there!

  Thank you,
  Karl Fauerbach
  RAA President
