I stumbled across this article a few days ago regarding multifamily education and how much effort property management companies have been devoting to it for some time now. This article was posted in Multifamily Executive back in 2005. Below is a brief quote from the article:
“Two years ago, George Lane, chairman of Lane Co. in Atlanta, taught a property management class at the University of Georgia. About 60 students showed up. This year, more than 200 students attended Lane's guest lecture. Taking a cue from this heightened interest, multifamily industry leaders and associations now are working with colleges and universities across the country to help establish and fund four-year degree programs in residential property management.”
Please read the rest of the article to see the history that has taken place to push and promote college education for the multifamily industry. So what does this mean for the present and the future of the multifamily industry? The Peggy Waskom Super Bowl is an event like no other. This is your opportunity to reach out and support something that will benefit our industry now and for the future. This is an event that will show to our children how important this industry is to us and how much we feel it means to them. Have you reached out to the committee to see where you could contribute or participate? Please follow through and do not delay. Check out our links below for further information. There are many already who have reached out and will be participating. This event will provide a great networking opportunity for owner/managers and vendors. Thanks to everyone who has already moved forward and are ready for February 9th 2010.
