2013 State Convention news

Hello everyone!


5 CEU’s will be awarded for this convention. This $79 fee is a very economical way for realtors to pick up 5 CEU’s


As we speak we are putting the finishing touches on the 2013 Landlords of Iowa/Iowa Landlord Association co-sponsored convention. We have been adding vendors daily to the Trade Show to give you more bang for your buck. We added an energetic speaker for Saturday afternoon, Dan Firestone with Applicant Screening. Dan is exceptionally knowledgeable, you will not want to miss. Dan has 23 years experience with CIC in California on the importance of thorough Tenant Background Checks”. Attending this session and hearing the knowledge Dan can share will likely pay for the entire conference.

Robin Means from the Waterloo Commission on Human Rights gives advice on how to avoid being sued for discrimination while choosing your tenant prospects.

Frustrated with loosing in Small Claims court, local esteemed Judge Joe Sevcik will give you guidance on what is expected in his court room to win your case! Or to make sure you have a case – there is a difference!

State Toast Masters winning speaker and attorney Jack Ackerman will explain how to transfer real estate to your heirs tax free. Here is the opportunity to learn the details and save big on inheritance taxes.

We are also excited to have with us award winning and dynamic personality Andrew Lietzow, Executive Director, for Iowa Landlord Association and IAREIA scheduled for not one but two sessions, Electronic Fillings of small claims as mandated by the state for all filings by 2014 and Buy Smart – How to buy real estate and be PROFITABLE in any market.

Plus MORE…. You will save many times over the cost to attend the conference with the break out sessions. Then with the networking opportunities and entertainment how could you ask for more??

Now some of the dreary stuff – with having the convention at The Isle Casino we deal with a stricter set of guidelines as to ordering food for the various meals, having staff set up and tear down room set ups for speakers, etc.. We have to know by Monday morning how many meals to order of each type of food. How you want your steak cooked, etc… Most importantly, we need to know if your check is in the mail or when are you sending it. We welcome walk ups, but you may not and probably won’t get the same choice of food for the banquet. (Just saying…)

So please call and let us know your coming. Print this email, fill out the bottom, clip and mail to the address listed along with your check for $79. The Early Bird discount ends with a Monday postmark. Price is $99 after Monday, it has to go up to cover the extra costs dealing with the Casino catering. I would love to give it to everyone at a discount, but I can’t…

The LOI and ILA Executive Boards and Event Committees have been diligently working to provide an outstanding 2013 Annual Convention. We feel you will be impressed with the speakers, vendors and … the food!!! The Room Rate is still only $79/night, plus tax, Call the Isle of Capri (319) 833-4753 to make reservations. The block of rooms is dwindling, so call as soon as you can.
