Letter from the President

 Welcome back everyone to the start of our 2017-2018 year! The summer went faster than ever but hopefully everyone had a warm and wonderful one getting away with their families and loved ones. The RAA board is back in full swing planning the year ahead so if any of our members would like us to cover certain topics during the year please feel free to speak up. We will be covering not only topics that we covered before but some new ones as well. We will try to have open time towards the end of each meeting so members can get questions answered that might be off topic. We encourage members to bring those questions and also to participate in round table type meetings. The sharing of ideas and information is so valuable. I hope everyone enjoyed and learned from the meetings we had in the last year.The May 16th 2017 Banquet was a huge success as usual and again we thank Muffy and her team of volunteers who made it happen. Lots of work goes into the banquet.  Muffy can always use more volunteers so give her a shout. Thank you to Famous Dave’s for providing great food and a big special thanks goes out to all the Vendors for participated and bringing all the raffle prizes. 

We start our New Year with a couple of new RAA board members. We want to welcome Lynn Olsen and Larry Mills to the RAA board. We are happy they have joined in our efforts to educate all Landlords and we are sure they will be helpful additions to the process of doing so. Larry Mills has become our new Programs director. Lynn Olsen will be assisting other board member in their duties. They both are replacing outgoing board members Tim Hoffman and Greg Osen. We would like to thank Tim and Greg for their service on the RAA board.

 We will be covering many topics this year and first on the agenda in our meeting September 19th 2017 we will be talking “Insurance”.  Our guest speaker will be Jeff Eckberg from Eckberg Insurance Agency.  Jeff will cover all aspects of insurance coverage relating to investment property. He will talk about the differences between full replacement value and actual cash value. He will explain what happens in a claim situation, whether it be property loss or personal injury. Does your insurance policy cover damage from mold, lead poisoning, sewer backup, flooding in general? Find out what you don’t know so you’re not surprised in a claim situation.

Membership renewals have been sent to many members by email recently because most of us have an anniversary date of September 1st. We want members to know they have 30 days after that to renew their membership or they will be automatically removed from the email group. To avoid that, please go online to the Rental Housing Professionals and renew your membership before the 30 days. We will also be helping members renew online at each general meeting if you're have difficulties doing it yourself. Our goal is to get all members to renew and manage their membership profiles online.

 We will again hold our meetings at the Rockford Area Association of Realtors (RAAR) Building located at 6776 East State Stre
et, Rockford IL. 61108 on the Third Tuesday of each month starting with Networking at 6:30pm and the general meeting at 7:00pm.

Hope to see you all there and again welcome back!

Thank you,
Karl Fauerbach, RAA President
