Three chapters of Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) — Greater Metropolitan 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. In 2020, we are excited that Maryland Chapter 16 will be joining the other three chapters as one of the hosts of this event. 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 ONE MILLION DOLLARS 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.
