The winter season is an excellent time to brush up on professional development. For commercial property managers, the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) is the best place to pursue continuing education. IREM Minnesota hosts events throughout the year for managers to hone their skills, pursue certification, and give back to their communities.
Here’s a look at the events coming up this winter at IREM Minnesota.
Ethics for the Real Estate Manager Course – January 29
IREM Minnesota starts the year off on a high gear with Ethics for the Real Estate Manager (ETH800), a course required for the ACoM, CPM, ARM, and AMO certifications. It’s taught by our very own Mel Schultz.
The day-long course will cover IREM’s code of ethics and give participants a chance to study real-world ethics cases and the implications they have on commercial property managers and their clients. The course will also cover strategies for overcoming ethical dilemmas and avoiding conflicts of interest.
Ethics for the Real Estate Manager also qualifies for 4 hours of continuing education for property managers. To register, visit iremmn.org.
Volunteering at People Serving People – February 10
IREM Minnesota members volunteer at People Serving People the second Monday of every month. People Serving People is a family-focused shelter that helps break the cycle of homelessness for families. The volunteers serve meals to the shelter’s residents.
This event is open to members and their colleagues, friends, and family members. To register, visit iremmn.org.
Northland Mechanical and IREM Minnesota Present Celebrate IREM! – February 21
Celebrate IREM! is the organization’s opportunity to reflect on the past year and celebrate successes. Attendees will enjoy cocktails, a plated dinner, awards presentation, volunteer recognition, gaming tables, and live music.
IREM members, partners, plus ones, and non-IREM property managers are all welcome. To register or sponsor a gaming table, visit iremmn.org.
Roundtable: Fenestration Field Testing – March 18
Terracon Consultants representatives Allen Witt and Ryan Nierengarten will hold a roundtable discussion on fenestration field testing this March. The discussion will cover ASTM methods for field testing and the differences between ASTM standards and AAMA standards.
By the end of the roundtable, participants will be able to identify different fenestration testing standards and determine when each are appropriate to use. To register, visit iremmn.org.
Virtual CPM Capstone – March 23–March 27
This virtual event allows participants to complete their CPM capstone projects without spending time in a physical classroom. The course is designed for CPM candidates who still need to complete their management plans and the CPM Certification Exams. It offers participants the chance to take the Management Plan Skills Assessment as an alternative to submitting an independent management plan. On the last day, CPM candidates take the CPM Certification Exam.
To register for the virtual CPM capstone, visit iremmn.org.
