President’s Letter:

We had a WONDERFUL Spring Banquet. We all had a great time visiting with each other and with the vendors. If you have an opportunity to utilize vendor services, please do so, as they support our organization, and they can sure use your support! At the banquet, hopefully you were able to meet with the political attendees to get to know them and to share with them issues that concern you. They’re a great bunch of people, and we’re very grateful they took time out of their busy schedules to visit with us.

We have a VERY exciting presentation on June 21st with Jane A. Bouzek, M.A., Leadership Consultant, Mediator, Facilitator. The presentation title is "Manage Conflict with Tenants: The Landlord’s Guide to Productively Transforming Challenging or Aggressive Behavior." Jane will guide us through how to deal with conflict from a tenant; the techniques she shares could also be used in all aspects of your life.


SAVE THE DATE for December 13th 2022 for our RAA Christmas Party!
