May 10

Fellow Members,

As you have heard me say many times the association is at a critical point, and we must unite together or become powerless separately. The board has adopted an aggressive agenda and will need all hands on deck to make it a reality. The status quo is no longer acceptable and I promise the association will be more active and involved during the next election cycle than we have been in a long time. I am worried about many things including expansion of the Rental Inspection Programs and possible use of Eminent Domain by the City of Milwaukee. I have no doubt the City has both on its mind but I promise the association will give them hell every step of the way.

To ensure the association is in a position to protect our rights we must increase both our membership and business sponsorship’s. I want you to invite every landlord you know to our upcoming May 20th meeting. This meeting will feature some of the top lenders in the area and should be an informative and worthwhile conversation. I need everyone of you to work on behalf of the association and help us gain strength in numbers. Many of you have answered the call and your energy has been felt and is making a difference.

After the last meeting a number of members spoke to me about the importance of supporting businesses that support us. This is a topic I am passionate about and have spoken to frequently. If any vendor you use is not a business member of the association I want you to invite them to our next meeting as a guest of the association. I want them to experience first hand the energy and passion of our organization. I believe this is the best way to get them to see the value of being a part of what we are doing. Please email me if you will be bringing anyone and take a moment to introduce them me at the meeting.

For the past 4 months I have been negotiating with both Home Depot and Sherwin Williams about offering our membership a discount on their products and joining the association. I am happy to announce that representatives from both organizations will be at our next upcoming meeting and we will be announcing the details of the partnerships.

If you can only attend one meeting for the entire year, this is the one you do not want to miss!

Our industry is only as strong as our association and our association is only as strong as our membership. I look forward to seeing all of you at the meeting.

All the best,

Joe Dahl
Apartment Association of Southeastern WI
