Your Mission: 4 Lessons from 50 State Journey

Janine Stange

Through stories that are both comical and moving, Janine takes audiences across the nation along her historic journey. A journey rooted in five life lessons instilled by Stange’s strong-willed Italian mother who had strict rules about efficiency, organization and living an honest life. Using her own story as the example, Stange makes the argument that the time for self-examination is now. Her mission took both a shift in thinking and habits in order to abandon the comfort zones that Janine occupied for over a decade.

How to Create a Business that not only can SURVIVE but THRIVE in 2021

Jim Roman

Jim Roman Introduction at 9:55am

If you’re like most small business owners and managers, you had a dream: Owning or managing a small business would give you more control over your life. It would give you the freedom—and the money—to do what you want, when you want to do it.


If you’re like most small business owners and managers, this is your reality: You’re working harder than ever and having less time than you ever imagined for yourself, your family and your life. Maybe you are surviving, but you’re certainly not thriving.

Everything is changing fast, and we will soon be at a crisis level. It is not a matter of “IF”, it is “WHEN” you will be hit with more bad legislation on the local and state level. Learn the steps that need to be taken by the property manager NOW to preserve the property management profession and protect your rights, your business, and your property owner.


Attorney Harry Heist has fought on the state and local level for three decades writing and advocating for laws and ordinances beneficial to our profession and he has helped to prevent many harmful laws and ordinances from being put into place.  He, along with other experienced NARPM members will show you the process from A-Z and teach you how YOU can make a massive difference right now.


There is no time to waste. You will be shown what is driving these harmful laws and ordinances and exactly how the process of your political empowerment can and must occur.  After this presentation you will know how to engage in the process, meet with local and state lawmakers and control your destiny.


Confused about how these laws and ordinances get passed? Surprised when they do? Feel helpless? Feel angry? You are NOT alone.


You are going to learn the process in a step-by-step fashion and watch a live demonstration of political empowerment at work.  After this presentation you will feel comfortable and excited about your role and mission and how you will play an important and integral part in the system to protect your rights. Rights that are being eroded every single day due to the lack of action by the property manager.

Profitable Property Awareness

Profitable Property Awareness

Phil Owen

Phil Owen Introduction at 2:00

Maintaining property awareness is a critical part of the value we provide to clients and are a key way we protect ourselves from liability and expense. But performing “inspections” are part of the job that no one loves. Further, it is a cost center for too many property managers!


We will explore how to get paid for your time when you are performing property condition reports. We will look at various types of “inspections” (move-in, move-out, periodic, lease renewal, etc.) and discuss strategies for working each of those into your lease and management agreements so that you are fairly compensated for your time and experties.
Turn property awareness into a profitable component of your business!
