Your Apartment Association has been working hard to support you and to help you manage your property effectively and profitably. We are fortunate in that we have a large team of companies and organizations that support our industry and your Apartment Association.
Businesses which provide us with products and services range from insurance and cleaning supplies to legal and financial help. Many of these generous vendors showed their support through sponsorships for our recent and most successful Golf Tournament.
Their contributions include:
MOUSE PAD SPONSOR
The Screening Pros
LA Hydro-Jet & Rooter Service, Inc.
CAL Bath Commercial
Time Warner Cable
Multifamily Ancillary Group
Matrix American Insurance
VP Capital Markets, Michael Derk
Roto-Rooter Service & Plumbing Co.
Ben's Asphalt Inc.
G4 Construction Services
Main Street Management
Loftus & Davey, CPAs
State Farm, Richard Kaminski
Prudential California Realty
Menke Law Firm, APC
Belmont Brokerage & Management, Inc.
Our Golf Tournament profit was over $25,000---money to help provide you with the best Association activities and services. This is money we do not have to ask for from members like you!
These same vendors---and many more---will also step up to the plate to support our upcoming 43rd Annual Rental Housing Expo, "There's Magic in the Air" on September 20, 2011 at the Long Beach Convention Center. You will be able to personally thank these vendors while you are touring the dozens and dozens of booths, exhibits and seminars at this world class Trade Show. Since these vendors provide us with such strong support, we should support them with our business.
If you need appliances, carpet cleaning, laundry rentals, pest control or other products and services, check the listings for the best of the best in your Apartment Association, California Southern Cities SOURCEBOOK. This timesaving directory of qualified vendors is available in hard copy and online: click here to view the SOURCEBOOK.
In the back half of the SOURCEBOOK, is a convenient listing of offices where you can pick up operational forms and Trade Show tickets. Also listed in this handy reference guide is a legislative directory. It provides the name and contact information for all of our US Senators and Representatives, our State of California Governor and constitutional officers and all State Senators and Assembly Members.
As an added bonus, the SOURCEBOOK identifies the key officials and contact information for each of the cities supported by your Apartment Association. In past magazines I have praised the contributions made by our Association's Board and committee members. If you are interested in learning more about our industry and your Apartment Association, you can join this group of dedicated volunteers by serving on a committee or on the Board of Directors. Nominations will be held in August, so now is a good time to step up and get involved. Contact our office at (562) 426-8341 or (800) 310-2080. Tell them that you are interested in becoming a part of the team.
I especially look forward to greeting each of you at your Apartment Association's September 20th Trade Show at the Long Beach Convention Center.
