12th Annual IREM Gala
The Institute of Real Estate Management® (IREM) Chapters 8, 77, and 92, will host the Twelfth Annual IREM Gala on Friday, May 19, 2017, at Congressional Country Club.

Last year we raised $75,000 to benefit Special Love For Children With Cancer, a local organization that provides support and services to children with cancer, including camp adventures and weekend getaways for children, parents and siblings. This event was a complete sell out, with 325 attendees, including Christopher Mellen, CPM®, IREM's National President, David Smith, CEO of Special Love, a guest speaker and former camper, Hunter Willis, and numerous Real Estate Companies and Industry Partners.

Since the Gala's inception, IREM has raised over $500,000 for Special Love.

The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) is a non-profit professional organization that educates and promotes professionalism and ethics in the property management industry. IREM's mission is to serve the needs of all real estate management professionals. Through IREM, professional designations may be obtained through course study and testing, offering the most recognized trademarks of excellence in the property management industry.

Three chapters of The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM)—Greater Metropolitan Little Boy Washington D.C. Chapter 8, Northern Virginia Chapter 77, and West-Central Maryland Chapter 92—held their first IREM Gala in May of 2006. The event was created as a dinner dance for charity. Since its inception in 2006, IREM has selected Special Love for Children With Cancer as the charity that would receive 100 percent of the proceeds from this event. Special Love is a local non-profit organization that provides families dealing with cancer a network of support, made up of other patients and families who know and understand the trials and triumphs of battling cancer. To date, IREM has donated over $500,000 to this amazing organization.

Even more than just an education and membership organization, IREM is a networking tool for all professionals in real estate management at all levels of the industry, including multi-family managers, property supervisors, asset managers, and management company owners.

Sponsors of the IREM Gala include many property management firms, along with several service providers that support the property management industry.
