Membership has its Benefits!


OUR MISSION 

Real Estate Investors Uniting for Success

ABOUT MEMBERSHIP AND MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS (Click for Newsletter Archive)

  • WHO WE ARE: After 35 years as the Iowa Landlord Association (ILA), and 9 years as Two Rivers REIA of Central Iowa (TRREIA), we are merging these two organizations under one umbrella organization – IaREIA.   We have focused on three primary benefits Education, Legislation, and Member Benefits (ELM) for several years now, and there is enough overlap in the focus of both groups, that merging was logical.  Both organizations now form a Chapter of the National REIA (NaREIA).  We are proud of our Charter Chapter status, and the national awards we have won --  in 2014  for "Legislative Affairs" and two awards in 2015, for "Legislative Affairs" and "Education".  We are committed to offering best-in-class services in Iowa. 
  • ABOUT ELM:  We proactively implement technology to enhance member benefits -- now, at an unprecedented level. This path is not without its speed bumps, but to be best-in-class in Iowa with forms, training, access to timely information of direct value to members, accounting system and property management training, ready access to other members for networking, listings of investment property for sale, and access to top notch Vendor Partners, we felt it necessary to get caught up with the top performers in the nation!    ELM is simply the acronym which best describes our primary focus.    
  • OUR NATIONAL AFFILIATIONS:  National REIA, with 45+ Chapters across the US, supporting nearly 40,000 members and nearly 200 affiliate groups, provides outstanding leadership in education and networking opportunities for our leadership.  They provide a framework and coaching to help us elevate our approach to education (PHP and IaCHP), association leadership training (Mid-Year Leadership conferences), Federal level lobbying, and services which simply would not be available were we not a member.  In addition, we are continually enhancing our relationships with our Tier-1 “National Account” Vendor Partners and local Vendor Partners — to increase the tangible ROI of your membership investment.
  • WHO WE SERVE: We serve Rental Property Owners and Property Managers of residential rental property across Iowa, from the Missouri to the Mississippi River, and from Kansas to Minnesota – through the Iowa Landlord Association subgroup.   We also serve real estate entrepreneurs in the same region, through Two Rivers REIA.   In those areas where we do not currently offer district meetings, we offer an internet only membership which provides access to the "Members-Only" portions of our web resources, including access to association forms.  
  • OUR MEMBERS and MEMBERSHIPS:  Our members include active stakeholders in the industry, primarily owners and property managers, as well as Vendor Partners who serve those industries.  We no longer (as of Aug 1, 2015) offer separate memberships to ILA or TRREIA -- when you join IaREIA, you automatically have access to meetings of both subgroups (except "At Large, Online Only").  Our “At Large” membership is for those who live more than 60 miles from a local, district meeting.  You’ll find more details under membership type.
  • SCOPE OF SERVICE:  Our association is extending our outreach across Iowa primarily to enhance our effectiveness at the State General Assembly level.   We have a 50-Senate District and 100-House District strategy to accomplish our objectives, so we serve members across the entire state.    Because many rental property owners are looking for new and creative ways to expand their real estate investment portfolio (best accomplished by attending subgroup meetings of ILA) and to create income generating opportunities (best accomplished by attending subgroup meetings of TRREIA), we have merged the two membership types.  Now, both groups benefit from our lobbying efforts to create fair and balanced legislation at the State Level.  We serve members from “River to River”.    No other organization in the state offers this mix of opportunity for networking and professional, industry specific education.   
  • STATEWIDE PAC: Through the Iowa Rental Property Owners Political Action Committee (IARPO-PAC) and our lobbying activities, we assist in the creation and modification of State Laws for a fair and balanced approach to benefit our members.  We share this PAC operations and funds allocation with other groups in the state.  We are very committed to ensuring funds are distributed in a non-partisan manner.   What we hope for, and oftern enjoy, is a seat at the table when legislative issues which effect investment property owners and managers, are being consider.   We want our Legislators to spend more time legislating and less time fundraising.  We are grateful for the sharing of this responsibility with Landlords of Iowa.   
  • APPLICANT SCREENING SERVICES:   One of our Tier-1 Vendor Partners is Contemporary Information Corporation (CIC), for whom we have been a marketing affiliate for over five(5) years.   We hear these services rate as best in the nation from our members, barring none, for timely response and accuracy.   When you add in our support, willingness to be an "online requester" for small operations, and that we waive the $75 setup fee for our members, this service is mission critical for many. CIC creates "raving fans" of our members.  IaREIA-ILA is proud to be the exclusive representative for CIC in Iowa, and no account is too far away for us to setup.  In fact, Apply Connect is available to landlords all over the nation!   And landlord or property manager, in the country! -- can get started here, today!!! 
  • LOCAL LOBBYING THROUGH DISTRICT GROUPS: Through “District Sub-Groups”, that can operate like a franchise, we help local leaders to be freed up to focus on their local issues.   Instead of being burdened with administrative headaches, which will accrue to any organization over time, we enable our District leaders to focus on what really matters — helping their groups deal with local ordinances and education for members to achieve more success.   We feel this is a more effective business model, reducing tensions between “competing” chapters.  We strive to create a “we’re all in this together” attitude.
  • ASSISTANCE TO OUR DISTRICTS:  The daily grind for administrative responsibilities can be overwhelming.   We serve to assist, not to control.  Though there are many administrative functions which are handled better with centralized responsibility, accountability, and authority, we come to our district meetings with the commitment to “assist” local leadership, not to take over.   We couldn’t be nearly as effective without local leadership!
  • MEMBERS ONLY & ONLINE DOCUMENTS: As an active member, you will have access to numerous forms and association trademarked assets which aid members in running a rental property business.  Premium forms and products are available, providing “best in class” resources to run your business at an even higher level.  Our forms are now “online” through Tenant Technologies.   For more information, contact the office.
  • EDUCATION and CERTIFICATIONS: We provide for our members the nationally recognized “Professional Housing Provider” (PHP) certification (a NaREIA-sponsored program) of 60-hours and the “Iowa Certified Housing Professional” certification (IaCHP - 36-hours of classroom training), designed for owners and managers of Iowa residential property.   We capture hours for members they may be viewed at any time, in your profile record.   
  • AFFILIATE MEMBERS:  Our Master Vendor Partners, Vendor Partners and Vendor Affiliates offer products and services of direct benefit for members.  We screen our vendor partners to ensure that professional services and high quality products are being provided to our members, yielding a “Speed of Trust” dividend for those who do business with our Vendor Partners.  We keep striving for "best in class" vendor partners, which we know can be very helpful to our members.
  • MASTERMIND GROUPS, ADVANCED COACHING PROGRAMS, ASSISTANCE WITH AUTOMATED, MULTI-USER ACCOUNTING SYSTEMS, AND MORE!!!
