Letter from the President

    I would like to welcome all new members that have joined the Rockford Apartment Association in the past couple months. We hope that you will find by joining the RAA you have made a wise choice and that the price you paid to be a member pays you back many times over. We also hope you will see, as a group, we have a voice in the community and that your membership contributes to having that voice. Our primary purpose and goal is to educate our membership. We do that by having interesting and informative topics for our monthly meetings with a combination of professional speakers, people who are experts in their field, and also with our own more experienced members. Our meetings almost always include roundtable discussions that get everyone in attendance involved in the conversation. It gives members a chance to bring up issues that they might be dealing with and to ask how other members handle those situations. Our other very important purpose is to advocate for and inform members of state and local issues that affect our business in either a positive or negative way. We keep our members up to speed on current State laws, local building and health codes, federal laws including fair housing and much more. The Rockford Apartment Association is part of the state association (IRPOA) Illinois Rental Property Owners Association. IRPOA helps us with issues that happen in Springfield and keeps everyone informed about important happenings at the state level. Finally, one of the greatest benefits of being a RAA member is our group email. It is a way for members to communicate and network with each other without having to wait for a monthly meeting to get answers. They share knowledge, ideas, and first hand experiences using their computers and smart phones. Don’t be afraid to use it. The conversations that take place benefit everyone. We are a volunteer organization that strives to educate and inform its membership. We always welcome more help and volunteer work from any members that are willing to give of their time.

    At our October meeting Larry Mills and Jeff Sturtecky lead one of our best meetings ever. Our topic was “Elements of the Lease”. Larry and Jeff did a fantastic job of covering all the different aspects of the lease and there was a lot of participation from the membership as well. Thanks guys for putting together such a great program!

    Our Annual Christmas Party will be December 18 th from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Midway village located at 6799 Guilford Rd in Rockford IL. Food and Nonalcoholic beverages will be provided by Famous Daves along with a cash bar. Anyone and everyone is welcome. RAA members and one guest are free but you must register by December 10th. Nonmembers cost $15.00 but also need to register by December 10 th . There will vendor tables and raffle prizes as always! Anyone wanting a vendor table or having trouble registering for the event can contact Muffy at 815-988-2755. Please use the link below to register!

Hope to see you all there!

Karl Fauerbach, RAA President
