2018 RHA President
Can it be December already? It has been such a pleasure serving as your 2018 RHA President. 2018 was truly an amazing and productive year for the RHA. In 2018 we celebrated our 65th Anniversary with robust programming and plentiful networking opportunities to best serve our members.
As 2018 draws to a close, we are delighted to report that RHA’s Membership continues to be strong with 577 Members, including 188 Affiliate Members and 389 Industry Members, representing 156,708 rental units around New England.
RHA enriched 310 members and guests with valuable educational programs including NAAEI credentials: CAPS, CAM, NALP and CAMT. RHA showcased new developments and industry trendsetters in the successful Breakfast Buzz and Biz series. RHA provided networking opportunities for 2,779 members and guests at events such as the Summer Cookout, Maintenance Mania and our signature annual tradeshow. We rounded out the year with the President’s Awards Dinner where we honored Massachusetts Speaker of the House, Robert A. DeLeo, with the Excellence in Public Service Award and Karen Fish-Will, Principal & CEO, Peabody Companies, with the Industry Excellence Award. As we wrap-up the year, through our charitable efforts, we are pleased to be donating $30K to Rosie’s Place and Friends of Boston’s Homeless.
Administratively, we completed a thorough strategic planning exercise and have a new Strategic Plan for implementation in 2019, which we feel strengthens our commitment to our membership and relevance in the industry. One key initiative of the 2019 Strategic Plan is a change in RHA’s Membership structure from an individual based plan to a more inclusive company based membership. More information about the membership change can be found here. More information about the Strategic Plan will be shared in 2019 under the leadership of Lauren Paton, Regional Director, Brookfield, 2019 RHA President and the 2019 Board of Directors.
Thank you for your contributions to the RHA’s successful year. We look forward to your continued support and participation in the RHA in 2019!
