I just returned from the 23rd Annual Convention of NARPM which was held in Dallas, Texas, October 18-21, 2011. The association celebrated their 23rd convention anniversary during the event while various general sessions emphasized professionalism. Workshops offered current attendees information to help residential property managers keep abrest of the latest developments in the industry. Suppliers and vendors were also present with samples of goods and services for improving the management of property.
The NARPM Annual Convention is a great way to keep up with current trends and changes in our industry and to locate products helpful for efficient property management and professional development. Workshop topics ranged from the latest trends in social networking to ethics to managing effective and profitable teams. As always, there was a strong emphasis on the NARPM designation program.
Over 500 of the best property managers in the industry were at the annual event. NARPM has over 3,000 members and is the nation's only professional organization dedicated exclusively to enhancing the professionalism and ethics of those managing single family dwellings for their clients.
