September 2015

There are three things I look forward to in September - the kids are back in school, Fall, and the annual AACSC Trade Show! Our entire staff works very hard to make our Trade Show a great event for our membership; that is why this year is so special. With the addition of Education Day it not only expands our Trade Show to two days, but we are offering special pricing on 11 different topics on Education Day. So mark your calendars for Education Day, September 23, and our 47th Annual Trade Show & Expo (September 24)!

And for all of our management companies, owners and vendors, don’t forget to make your reservation for the Industry Awards Breakfast on September 24. This year we are holding it downstairs at the Long Beach Convention Center in the beautiful Seaside Ballroom. Come ready to celebrate because we are honoring all of those who keep our properties looking great and running smoothly. This is the time to thank all of our hard-working staff. See you there and don’t forget that September 9th is the deadline for submitting nominations for the Awards Breakfast.

In addition to the Awards Breakfast, you have the chance to join us for a special Ask An Attorney luncheon on September 23. Bring your legal questions for our panel of attorneys. It’s not often you get this opportunity, so register today!

Then, along with our FREE Seminar Sessions on Trade Show Day, September 24, we have over 100 vendors and community partners who are excited to show you the latest our industry has to offer. And don’t miss our Economic Forecast luncheon featuring Keynote Speaker, Dr. John Husing, research economist named by the Los Angeles Times as one of the 100 Most Powerful People in Southern California; L.A. County Assessor Jeffery Prang; and Kraig Kojan from the Downtown Long Beach Associates who will be providing you with insight for 2016. This information will help you plan for 2016 and is one of the first forecast sessions of the forecasting season. You will be on the forefront of valuable information that will help you plan for your future.

I especially want to thank our Trade Show Sponsors: Jim’s Floor Covering, Exchange Right Real Estate, Gazette Newspapers and Carbrier Apartments for supporting AACSC as we continue to provide quality sessions and offer professional speakers that will help you prosper in the new year. We value your partnership.

Be sure to look for next month’s update on all things legislative. There is a lot going on and as they break for the holidays we want to make sure you are up to date. AirBnBs are the newest way to travel, but we have been hearing from some of our members that residents are taking it upon themselves to sublet their units without permission. We are working to see if we can assist as we gather information, but suffice it to say, you need to be aware of your own policies and to make sure that your tenants are aware of your policies, too.

If you haven’t been on Facebook lately then it is time to take a look. We have lots of friends and we are posting the latest information, classes, events, education and more - so take a look and be sure to “like us”. Thank you to our staff member, Hayley, for making this happen.

Finally, I want to update you on our Membership. We will be having a Membership Drive beginning on Trade Show day. Everyone is welcome to participate and with each new member, you will be entered to win fabulous prizes! So stop by the AACSC booth on Trade Show Day to learn more.

See you Wednesday, September 23, for Education Day and Thursday, September 24, for the Trade Show!
