What is an Industry Partner?

 The Institute of Real Estate Management has been the source of education and professional recognition for managers of all property types for over 75 years. The Northern Virginia Chapter of IREM is comprised of over 450 members comprised of site, property, and asset managers of office buildings, industrial projects, shopping centers, apartments and condominiums. Chapter meetings are attended by the most important and influential property managers and decision-makers in the area. As an Industry Partner, businesses are afforded the opportunity of personally networking with property managers at a chapter meeting through the meeting sponsorship program, or to advertise their services on the chapter website which is used by all property professionals affiliated with the chapter as a web advertiser.

Meeting Sponsors. Limited opportunities exist for sponsoring chapter meetings. There is a limit of four sponsoring firms for seven chapter meetings during the year. Meeting sponsors receive the following exclusive benefits:

  • Two complimentary tickets for the sponsored meeting and seating with chapter members.
  • Formal introduction from the podium.
  • Opportunity to advertise services in the slideshow playing during the network hour.
  • Recognition on all meeting advertisement eblasts and website meeting announcements.
  • Free listing on the chapter’s website Industry Partner page (by specialty and alphabetically) with a direct link to the sponsor's own website.
  • Two sets of mailing labels and email lists (as requested) of chapter CPM® members, candidates, and ARM® participants, and associate members.
  • Opportunity to attend all chapter meetings (ticket purchased at regular price, limit two representatives).
  • Listing in all chapter e-newsletters.

Website Advertisers. Property management related businesses and vendors who are not meeting sponsors may also advertise on the chapter's website. Each advertiser will be included in two separate listings. One is an overall alphabetical listing, and the other is a listing by vendor specialty. Both listings include the vendor's address and contact information, and, most importantly, a direct link to the vendor's own website. All listings will run for a full twelve months, and can be renewed at the end of that time.
