Regular Overtime Fire Service must be scheduled by phone call to our office, not through e-mail.



Elevator Inspection Overtime Update

2019 RHA President
  

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday season. I am so excited to be the 2019 President of the Rental Housing Association and look forward to seeing each and every one of you throughout the year.
  
First and foremost, I want to thank 2018 RHA President, Kate Franco, for her outstanding year of leadership as RHA celebrated its 65th anniversary! On top of helping us hit many milestones at our programs and events, Kate also played an integral role in RHA's strategic planning process, which you will be learning more about this year!
  
One of the biggest changes in 2019 is the enhanced Membership structure for Industry Members. In the past, Industry Members paid principal dues, a fee for each unit they owned/managed, plus additional dues for each individual employee that wanted to be a member of RHA. In order to become a more robust and inclusive association, we restructured the dues model. Now, Industry Member dues will be on a company-wide basis - principal dues and unit fees will cover Membership for the entire company! Simply complete the company roster here and include with your dues payment to start receiving benefits for your whole team.
  
I hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to get your colleagues involved in our association. Active Member's may further participate by signing up for one of our many committees. Please check out the committee sign-up form here for more information on current offerings.
  
Finally, we have some great upcoming programs and events that we hope you can attend:
  
2/26: Bruins Outing vs. San Jose Sharks
  
NAAEI Credential Programs:
2/4 - 2/6: National Apartment Leasing Professional Credential 
2/26 - 3/1: Certified Apartment Portfolio Supervisor Credential
4/3 - 4/12: Certified Apartment Manager Credential (Registration Coming Soon)
4/16 - 4/19: Certificate for Apartment Maintenance Technicians
  
Save the Date for the RHA Expo which will be held on Wednesday, October 2nd at the Hynes Convention Center! Reserve your Booth now! 
  
If you have any suggestions on how we can help strengthen RHA, please do not hesitate to contact Adrienne Maley at amaley@gbreb.com.
