This session is a message of hope, faith, and personal safety. You will be uplifted by the remarkable story of Beth Holloway, mother of Natalee Holloway, whose mysterious disappearance made international news after she vanished on May 30, 2005, near the end of a high school graduation trip to Aruba in the Caribbean.

Join the NARPM Women’s Council of Property Managers and learn how to apply Beth’s philosophies of courage, dedication, faith and strength to your own life.

About the Speaker

Beth Holloway
Mother of Natalee Holloway,
Author and Veteran Educator


By her own account Beth Holloway lived a quiet, somewhat uneventful life as a speech pathologist (B.S., M.S.P.) for children with special needs for 24 years. Her life changed quite dramatically in the summer of 2005 when her daughter Natalee disappeared on the last night of her senior high graduation trip to Aruba. This tragic story became the leading news mystery when it happened, and continues to make headlines today. Beth has appeared on every television network in the nation as well as on international TV and radio and in international newspapers, capturing the world’s attention as she searched for her daughter.

Barbara Walters selected Beth Holloway as one of the world’s most fascinating people for her perseverance in seeking answers to what happened to Natalee.

Beth has delivered her message of hope, faith and personal safety to young adults and people of all ages all across the United States. To date, she has presented her message to tens of thousands of students and parents alike in high schools, colleges, churches, local and national conventions and other venues, and to law enforcement officials, Attorneys General, Mayors’ Conferences, professional associations, prayer breakfasts and many others.

As a New York Times Best Selling author (“Loving Natalee: A Mother’s Testament of Hope and Faith” – also a Lifetime Movie) and a veteran educator, Beth continues to work on educating the public on safer travel. To that end she offers her half-day Travel-Ed Workshop to all ages.

ABC 20/20 filmed a documentary with Beth, which aired in November 2019.

Delegation:  Professional Velcro that May be Holding You Back
Presented by Fran Skinner, CFA, CPA of AUM Partners, LLC

Lack of Delegation has been called the Velcro that holds back professionals and companies from even greater success.  In Fran Skinner’s experience, she has observed this is especially true for female professionals and managers.  In this session, Fran will share the personality traits common among successful Property Managers and their team members that are frequently the same traits holding them back from delegating responsibilities which could clear the way for even greater success. In addition, she will provide the specific steps you can take to determine the best person on your team to delegate a task to and execute a delegation strategy that will allow everyone to maximize their contribution and increase your firm’s capacity.  This interactive leadership development session is not only for women who want to learn the tools that can help them be more in their “A-Game”, but for men with women on their team that they want to help reach their next level of success.

Women in Business Panel
Panelists: Darcie Englert RMP®, Heather Nicely and Bess Wozniak, MPM® RMP®
Moderator: Abi Wasserman

If you’re a woman and in property management, chances are you have a deep understanding of the intricacies of navigating daily challenges of the property management industry. The challenges are internal and external; the demands come from friends and family, teams, and colleagues within the industry. They are unique and common at the same time.

Join your fellow property managers on October 21 and talk with some of the most dynamic women within the NARPM community. We will dive into the twists and turns, the makes and breaks, and what has ultimately brought each panelist to where they are today in their property management careers.

About the Panelists:

American Home Team Realty, LLC, Oviedo FL

Darcie Englert, RMP® is Owner and Director of Property Management at American Home Team Realty, LLC. She moved to Florida in 1992 and has been proud to call it her home ever since. Her real estate journey began in 1998, when realizing that being a realtor was the perfect way to earn a living while still being able to spend plenty of time with her three children. After 4 years in the industry, she struck out on her own – realizing she could do better on her own than with a firm. In 2003, condo conversions became popular, so she branched out into the property management field and hasn’t looked back! She loves the challenge of finding the perfect tenant for each of her clients and being able to help them reach their financial goals. She loves assisting real estate investors in becoming more knowledgeable about residential property management and more respectable as landlords. “American Home Team Realty LLC allows me to use my strongest skills—excellent communication skills and the ability to work through difficult situations—for your benefit and I don’t consider my work completed until you are happy!”- Darcie Englert.

What Are We About?

The purpose of this council will be to focus on the development of leadership qualities in women.  We want to help them become better businesswomen, speakers, and leaders in their communities as well as in the real estate and property management industries. While our focus will primarily be on women and women’s development, men are encouraged to attend women-led trainings, webinars, and breakout sessions to gain knowledge and insights on working with the women in their businesses and how they can help them grow as well.

The day to day operations of running a property management company are changing, including how we collect rent, maintain properties, do inspections, etc. With these changes, we can start to embrace the unique qualities women bring to property management.  This is not solely about gender. There is power in connecting with one another; men and women alike can benefit from connecting. By connecting with one another we can shine a brighter light on and improve this industry, which is the main goal of NARPM and any of their members. Women tend to have fewer role models and mentors and therefore can feel as if they need to conform to the traditional leadership model which can sacrifice her individuality and strengths.  This is easily remedied by simply growing those who are ready to step into the leadership areas they were created for.
