Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it's 2016. Time really does seem to fly by, so we don't have a moment to waste. The Board of Directors and staff have committed to build and improve on the solid foundation of AACSC. Look for some exciting changes and enhancements to the many products, services and events that make up the benefits of your membership.

But before talking about our future plans, we want to thank our Product Service Council, Management Service Council, Board Members and all those who attended the MSC/PSC Holiday Party/Toy Drive in December. Each year it seems like we collect more and more toys for the children at Interval House and this year was no exception. And thanks to your generosity, we were able to once again make a sizeable donation to Interval House.

Plan on seeing our monthly membership meetings become more social, interactive and fun with a fresh line up of informative speakers that will help improve your rental business. Our forms will all be updated for 2016. They will be the most user friendly available in our industry and you will love them. We have a new renter’s insurance policy available through AACSC for 2016 and we'd like your help in offering it to your tenants. It is reasonably priced, will be of tremendous help to your tenants in the event of an emergency and will earn revenue for the Association.

In addition to our meetings, we are excited to expand your opportunity to further your education through our enhanced NAA certification courses. Be sure to look at our education calendar for the dates as we continue to increase the professional credentials of our membership.

Next, I am asking each of you to get involved on a committee. There are new committees, event committees, education, technology, magazine, ambassador and many others that need your input.  As we increase our education classes, mixers and membership meetings in all of our new cities this also brings with it the potential to connect with new members and vendors, as well as our City Council representatives. I hope you will join me this year as we expand our footprint into these new communities and make an impact within our 54-city territory.

In conclusion, if there is something you've been hoping to get through your membership in AACSC, let us know? What is your passion? Are you willing to share your idea and help us make it happen? I want to hear from you. If it will benefit our membership, then I'm for it!

It's time to get started.  Let’s “Watch Us Grow Together and Stronger”.

 

 

 

Family and Freedom

It’s that most wonderful time of the year. The time when we can enjoy our family gathered together for sumptuous meals, and catch up with friends and relatives we don’t normally see during the year. It’s also a time when we entertain guests, and maybe even talk to our neighbors. Most of all it’s a time to worship in whatever manner your family chooses. Let us remember to be grateful for the sacrifices our military families have made, and are making, so that we can enjoy the comforts of family and freedom.

My, what a whirlwind first year I’ve had as your president. Constant legislative action at the federal, state, and local levels made the days and weeks fly by with no time to be bored. Speaking of local legislation, the Proactive Rental Housing Inspection Program codified into an ordinance, last July, by the Long Beach City Council is a sea change in the rental housing landscape never before seen in the City Of Long Beach. Local housing providers will need to update their property management skills in terms of knowing what city housing inspectors will be looking for during inspections. Executive Director, Johanna Cunningham, along with our AACSC Education Committee is currently developing seminars to help housing providers know what to expect from an inspection.
