Message from the President - National Association of Residential Property Managers

Message from the President

What an honor it is to serve as your 2024 National President.

As we begin this new chapter together, let’s be reminded of the incredible power and potential that lies within our NARPM® community. Our organization is a dynamic force, and together through collaboration and innovation we will continue to flourish.

The future will bring challenges and opportunities alike. From evolving market trends to regulatory changes and economic shifts, our industry is constantly in flux. However, I firmly believe that by uniting our expertise, creativity, and desire to succeed, we can overcome any obstacle and thrive in the face of adversity.

NARPM® will continue to focus on the importance of nurturing the next generation of leaders. Education and mentorship will be key components, as well as providing the tools that our Members need to succeed in our ever-evolving landscape.

I challenge all of you to help the board and myself support these three simple-yet-powerful words in 2024: PEOPLE, PASSION AND PERSISTANCE.

People: We love this NARPM® family, and we are here to help each other. The people here today are what drive this organization to be better.

Passion: Work to follow a true servant’s heart. I ask you to accept the challenge of letting your passion shine in all that you do.

Persistence: Be a part of the effort to ensure our industry’s voice is heard and respected in our legislatives efforts, and always give your very best.

Your input and ideas matter, and we encourage each of you to get involved with our organization at whatever level seems appropriate. As Members, volunteers, business owners and employees we can all make a difference. It’s up to you to decide where you will leave your mark.

I am beyond excited to be the first person to “WELCOME you all HOME” in 2024.

“Welcome Home” represents our NARPM® family. It represents what we do for a living every day, and it provides an opportunity for us to expand our NARPM® family through growth of our current Chapters and planting our seed in new cities.  Let’s focus on fostering old relationships made, welcoming new people into this amazing community and providing an unforgettable family feeling that we have all grown to love.

I am also excited to announce that for this year’s Past Presidents’ Charity I have chosen the Pat Tillman Foundation.  This charity is near and dear to my heart in so many ways, and I am excited for the NARPM® community to be supporting these scholars in 2024.

The Foundation begun in 2004 to honor the life of Pat Tillman, an NFL football player who gave up his career to join the military following the terrorist attacks on 9/11 empowers and develops remarkable leaders who are uniquely positioned to solve some the greatest challenges of today and tomorrow. These leaders  known as Tillman Scholars are military veterans, service members and spouses who work across all industries, including healthcare, education, public service, law, national security and even space. The Foundation has invested more than $34 million in higher education scholarships and leadership development for a group of people who truly represent the best of us.

Thank you once again for all your trust and support. Let us embark on this journey together, with shared commitment to the success and NARPM®.
