2018 IRO Off To A Fast Start!

Cathy Brandon, Brandon Properties, 2018 AATC IRO Chair

I trust your 2018 is off to a great start! As a rental-housing owner, my 2018 is just as busy and crazy as 2017. Never a dull-moment in this business. For me, 2018 begins my second year as the AATC Independent Rental Owners (IRO) chair.

I’m honored that AATC President Sherry Jordan asked me to lead this outstanding group of real estate professionals. IRO provides networking and educational forums for Association members that share a unique spectrum of business interests common among rental housing owners.

We begin 2018 with two outstanding programs. First, on January 25th we’ll join the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas (AAGD) IRO members for a discussion on fair housing presented by Sue Weston. Then on February 1st, our meeting will be a presentation on the new tax law featuring AATC member and CPA Jimmy Bennett.

The January 25th meeting begins at 11:30 a.m. at Lifestyles Unlimited in Irving (106 Decker Ct, Irving, TX 75062). This meeting features national award-winning trainer Sue Weston. Understanding fair housing do’s and don’ts is critical to the success of our properties. Sue is a gifted teacher and has real world experience as a rental property executive. In short, she is the best.

Our February 1st meeting begins at 12:00 noon at AATC’s office (6350 Baker Blvd, Richland Hills 76118). This meeting focuses on taxes and features AATC member and CPA Jimmy Bennett. Taxes are a hassle; especially when the laws and rules change. Jimmy will help us navigate the new tax law and its implications for property owners.

Each meeting costs $15 per person to attend. Guest are $25. No one admitted without prior payment. No shows will be charged. Cancellations must be received 48 hours prior to the meeting. Contact Perry Pillow at ppillow@aatcnet.org or (817) 616-0354 for more information.
