Tenant Screening and Evictions
How to use the Winnebago County Web site
Winnebago County Circuit Clerk Tom Klein
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.
Last month 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 November 20 th 2018 meeting Topic will be “Tenant Screening and Evictions”
How to use the Winnebago County web site! Our guest speakers will be
Winnebago County Circuit clerk Tom Klein and Chief deputy Tom Lawson. Learn
the new e filing method as well as how to navigate the county web site when
screening for new tenants
Thanks, and hope to see you all Tuesday
