We invite you to check the IREM National website and this page on an ongoing basis as we deal with the COVID-19 Pandemic. Current resources on the IREM COVID-19 resources and information for property managers page includes:
CARES Act Summary
On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, creating $2 trillion in aid for businesses and individuals. Congressional leadership has signaled that an additional relief package could be ready before legislators return to Capitol Hill. We would like to thank the National Association of REALTORS® and the Real Estate Roundtable for their contributions to these summaries of the primary CARES Act provisions impacting the commercial real estate and property management industries.

Chapter Management Coronavirus Resources

The Income/Expense submission deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020. By extending the deadline, we hope this will provide enough time for contributors to submit their data and relieve them of another fast approaching deadline. In the meantime, keep up the great work and be sure to keep track of your Income/Expense Analysis® Goals & Submittals Status here.
As your company’s professional partner, please know that IREM is always here for your firm, but especially during these challenging times. We’re extending the deadline to pay your AMO® dues until June 30, 2020 and lifting the late fees that would’ve normally been applied on April 1, 2020. When you’re ready to pay, simply visit irem.org and login to myIREM with your AMO credentials. You also have the option to pay in increments by editing the amount to what you’re comfortable with. Afterwards, you can revisit the site and make additional payments until your full balance is paid.
IREM HQ Operations Reminder
A reminder that all HQ Team Members continue to work from home, which has the following impacts:
Pins and Certificates for New Certified Members - While the HQ Team works remotely, we will not be mailing pins and certificates to chapters for new members as we normally do on a weekly basis. We will notify you when we resume shipments.
Applications - For anyone who completes and mails an older version of the ARM or ACoM application, there may be a delay beyond our usual 5-7 business days processing time. Starting in 2020, the ARM and ACoM applications are now available on our website as downloadable PDFs – which can then be completed digitally and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are the links: ARM application and ACoM application.
Please know that we are here to support you, and please let us know if there is anything you need.
