If I Had a Hammer


Peter, Paul, and Mary probably didn't have the IREM changing of guard in mind when they sang their famous song about hammers. It's tradition for the org's outgoing president (in this case, Machen Advisory Group prez Beth Machen) to officially relinquish the position by passing a gavel on to the successor at IREM's Fall Conference, this year in Arizona. While that was the plan this year, the gavel somehow never made it to Scottsdale. But do property management professionals panic? Never. An enterprising IREM staffer instead found the perfect stand-in to pass along to new 2014 IREM president Joe Greenblatt, who's also CEO of San Diego-based Sunrise Management.
