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
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!
