Decision, Decisions - What’s the Right One?

There have been a lot of why’s, why not, or can we do it this or that way over the past several months. We have continually strived to move forward even with the many obstacles that the AAFW-NEI has faced.

As with every decision that is made, we evaluate what is best for the AAFW-NEI members and guests. These decisions are not easy as many of you know and have had to make tough decisions for your business or apartment community. After much consideration, we have made the decision to cancel the July 23rd Golf Outing. The information about coronavirus changes almost daily, and there is still so much unknown and we do not want to unknowingly spread the virus. We will continue to hold courses and events online for the health and safety of you all!

Our next education course will be Fair Housing = Good Business with Sherre Helmer on June 23rd on Zoom. You can earn your CEC’s from your office or home. See page 14 of the June OnSite for more information. We are so excited to have Sherre back in the Fort!

We will also be holding a Business Exchange, also known as a Reverse Tradeshow.  Instead of in-person meetings, we will hold the Business Exchange Virtually in Zoom rooms where management company personnel can meet with vendors and face-to-face meeting can still happen. Screen & document sharing will be available. We will have a Zoom test/training session to make this event run smooth. Management companies, please register by June 18th. Associate Members watch for more information on June 19th. This will be a great networking opportunity just in time for budget season!

We are continually looking forward and making decisions based on a snap shot of time. The one consistent is that we are here to support you and your business! We will continue to keep you updated on changes in the multi-family housing industry! We look forward to the day when we can all meet together, but in the meantime, don’t ever hesitate to contact Hope or myself if we can be of assistance.

I've been remembering this quote whenever we made a decision. "In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing to do, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt.
