About Industry Partners

The Industry Partners program is designed to foster professional relationships between chapter members and reputable service providers in the local area. This program offers the service provider community the opportunity to participate in chapter activities, and at the same time, helps chapter members serve their clients and employers via recommendations of quality vendors.

Chapter 8, as well as the property management industry, could not function without the valued support of those in related industries. IREM Chapter 8 offers the “Industry Partners Program” to vendors who service the industry. The purpose of this program is to foster professional relationships between Chapter 8 and a mix of locally-represented, reputable, and qualified real estate service professionals. Additionally, the program provides the Industry Partners with the privileges of limited participation in Chapter 8 activities.
