Message from Your Regional Vice President

September 2015: This will be my last official message as the RVP for Region 3, and I would like to take this opportunity to recap our major accomplishments and highlights of the last two years.

MEMBERSHIP NUMBERS - Region 3 remains the third largest Region out of thirteen Regions and experienced overall growth of 9% from January 2013 to December 2014. As of July 1, 2015, four of the Chapters in our Region have already exceeded growth from the prior calendar year 2014 by more than 6%, and I fully expect by year-end, our Region will be in contention for another membership growth award for 2015. GREAT WORK!!

AWARDS – In 2014, our Region received a record six awards as detailed below:

  • Income/Expense Analysis – Promotion – Hampton Roads Virginia Chapter No. 39
  • RVP Chapter Challenge – Total Membership Growth by Region – First Place – Region 3
  • RVP Chapter Challenge – Total Associate Member Growth by Chapter – Second Place – Greater Metropolitan Washington DC Chapter No. 8
  • Innovation Award – Greater Metropolitan Washington DC Chapter No. 8 – International Community Service event in Romania
  • Innovation Award – Region 3 Education – kudos to anyone who has ever served or currently serving on this committee.
  • Professional Achievement Award – Jack Gallagher, CPM

REGION 3 EDUCATION – We remain the ONLY Region who is taking advantage of our regional chapter locations, talent, resources, and instructors, to pool together a successful education program that has earned over $381,417 during the last five years. AWESOME RESULTS!!

SUCCESSFUL CHAPTER PROGRAMS – All of the Chapters do an excellent job of providing interesting and innovative programs, in many cases, taking advantage of the close proximity which allow for great multi-Chapter events. Chapters 8, 77, and 92 host three very successful joint programs each year including a black-tie fundraiser for Special Love; Forecast Event/Vendor Trade Show; and Mega Meeting networking event with inspirational speaker. Chapters 38 and 39 join together for fun annual events – a beautiful Virginia vineyard in 2014 and mural-painting event to donate art to a hospital in Williamsburg in 2015. Chapter 16 hosts a very successful golf tournament each year, along with many of the other Chapters, and takes advantage of their local flavor with crab feasts and events by the Harbor.

REGIONAL INTERNATIONAL MISSIONARY TRIP – Five chapters in the Region participated in an international home-building project in November 2014 in the Dominican Republic, sending 11 people to build a small, safe, affordable, concrete block home. TRUE DEDICATION!!

REGIONAL RETREAT – We had a very successful regional retreat this past summer, with over 50 in attendance, where we got to hear some great advice from Mike Simmons, learn about conflict management, talk about diversity in the chapters, and hone our public speaking skills. BEST REGION EVER!!!

My sincerest thank you to all of the Chapter Officers, Members, and IAE’s for your support, dedication, and passion to make our Region the best ever!

Our industry is moving in an ever-changing, exciting and new direction and IREM is a great partner. I encourage you to take advantage of everything it has to offer, from a professional and personal perspective, networking, education, and enhancing your leadership skills. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime at or 202-739-0860.
