Delegates from Seven Countries Hit Salt Lake City
The IREM Fall Leadership Conference welcomed delegates from seven countries outside of the US this year: Japan, Canada, China, South Africa, Brazil, Chile and Ukraine. This year was particularly special for the delegation from Brazil, as they were celebrating the approval of Rio de Janeiro as IREM's Chapter No. 120. Outgoing president Lori Burger of Eugene Burger Management Co recently traveled to the country to swear in the newest Certified Property Managers.
The international members were invited to a series of special sessions, including a forum that addressed the successful planning of networking events. They also attended a lunch hosted by IREM officers and went on a behind-the-scenes tour of Taubman Centers' City Creek Mall, a downtown mixed-use shopping complex with a retractable roof, natural water, stone and fish features inside and thousands of underground parking spaces.
