    Independent Rental Owners Council

    I.R.O.C. programs and seminars are conducted specifically for independent rental property owners with less than 100 units.  Smaller properties generally require a unique property management style, as opposed to the management style used for properties of larger sizes that can afford full-time management.  I.R.O.C. programs:

    • Help owners become better informed and educated about superior ways of managing rental properties.
    • Expand the network of independent owners to allow for greater communication and information flow.

    There are many areas available for volunteer members to participate including program planning, sponsorships, and program promotions.
