Committees

Finance Committee: This group assists the VP of Finance with budgets and other financial reporting and tracking.

Membership Committee: This group assists the VP of Member Services with any initiative to increase membership or other ways we can engage our members to be more involved in our classes, events and other programs. Members of this group who are CPM’s may be asked to help with the Chapter Approval process for new CPM members.

Communications Committee: The Communications Committee works with the VP of Communications to ensure that IREM is communicating on all fronts with our members and friends about things that are coming up or that folks should be aware of. This could include suggestions for email communications, facebook updates, blog entries, or other social media posts.

Education Committee: This group looks at ways we can add educational content to meetings and events or suggest additional programs, content or trainings that might be considered to enhance the educational offerings of the Chapter. We offer courses from IREM HQ as part of the credentialing programs. These suggestions could include workshops or seminars specifically designed around a single topic or provide trainings on a variety of skills and abilities. This group would also consider how to increase class attendance to our annual schedule, how to get the vendors involved to also introduce themselves and offer “lunch” or “snacks” for the attendees, how to make the experience better for the students, and how to add “Workshops in a Box” or other valuable programming to the chapter's educational offerings.

IREM Continuing Education (ICE) Committee: This committee works to arrange the details of the ICE 2-day conference in September. This includes location, speakers, sponsors and other coordination.

ARM/IYP/CPM Candidate (AIC) Committee: This group works together to coordinate all the events related to honoring these three member types. Historically, these groups have been honored separately but are now being combined to be able to plan larger events.

Student Outreach Committee: This group would work closely to develop relationships with Universities which offer Real Estate programs as part of their curriculum to be able to determine if there are ways that we could work together to create greater synergy in the property management portion of the real estate industry.

Exploring Real Estate Committee (Monthly Events): This group functions to provide suggestions for our monthly property tours. It would also suggest and coordinate supplemental activities (meals, happy hour, etc.) for these events, and solicit sponsorship, if applicable.

South Sound Leadership Committee: This group will work together to offer suggestions for IREM content and activities that would focus on this region’s South Puget Sound area. Potentially, this group could evolve into a sub-chapter.

Events Committee (Inaugural Gala, Monthly Events, ICE, Golf, Forecast, Annual Business, etc): This group would assist as needed for on-site support for the many events held during the year.  This would include registration, event host/hostess/concierge, and other assistance as requested by the planning committees.

ICON Event: This team works on the planning, coordination and execution of the ICON Event. This group works with facilities, sponsors, and professional partners to produce a seamless and robust event to honor a Real Estate ICON..

Scholarship Committee (Golf Event, Scholarship Applications, etc): This group works together to review scholarship applications and make award decisions to eligible applicants. A portion of the proceeds from the golf tournament go to the Scholarship Fund, so there is some opportunity for this group to be involved in the sponsorship and other fundraising for the Phil Fehler Golf Tournament. 

Professional Partners Committee: This committee works throughout the year to ensure that our professional partners are receiving all of the benefits they were promised. The group coordinates which partners want to attend which events, If they want their tables, hole assignments, etc. that are packaged with their sponsorships. This team also can help determine which events the partners will attend, which classes they’d like to sponsor, and handle any additional sponsorship opportunities as they arise.
