September 2014: Did you know that September is IREM Ethics Awareness Month? IREM is encouraging chapters to celebrate this in some way - perhaps have your members repledge or re-review the Code during a September event; or offer free enrollment of the Ethics on-line course as a refresher. The Code of Ethics has been revised to include gender identity as part of a commitment to equal opportunity which takes effect in February 2015.
Regional Vice President applications are being accepted now for our Region with a cut-off date of September 15th. If you are interested, please click here for details and let me know. It's a very rewarding experience, and I highly recommend any past Presidents who are passionate about IREM and our Region to sign up today!
IREM's Diversity Advisory Board is accepting applications for 2015 and are looking for rising leaders in the chapters. September 30 is the deadline to apply for the subsidy which goes towards two IREM conferences next year. Please go to the Diversity Initiatives and Outreach section for information.
The national IREM dues will be increasing in 2015 by $10 for members and $25 for AMO's.
The first year of the Job Shadow Initiative is under way and September 15-19 is the next designated week for this greatprogram. Chapters are encouraged to reach out to local high schools and colleges to search out potential job shadow candidates who are able to spend part, half or all day with an IREM member. Information/tips may be obtained by clicking here.
The National Orlando Fall Conference is just around the corner; sign up by September 1 in order to get the special discount. Chapters 16 and 77 were the recipients of the free registrations that our Region won as a result of the membership awards this year.
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.
