Our March meeting, on Thursday the 14th, will feature a Home Maintenance Clinic, with local expert Ron Valenta, owner of Valenta Plumbing and Heating. His presentation in 2017 was well received, and we are lucky to have him back again. He will cover some tricks of the trade that we all need to know for our rental properties. Come and learn some easy hands on solutions to common issues.
This will be a noon meeting at the Longbranch, with our room ready after 11:30. As always, please respond using the link below by Monday, as we need to give the Longbranch an accurate count for room setup and food.
Earlier, you received an email with news that our Landlords Day on the Hill will take place Wednesday, March 13th, at the Iowa State House in Des Moines. If you’ve never attended, this is an exciting and worthwhile experience. Landlords making their presence known at the Capitol makes a huge impact on our legislators considering important landlord legislation.
We will have a morning “rally” meeting in room 304 at 9:00 to organize our message and answer any questions you may have.
Stay in Room 304 for a meet and greet with sponsoring legislators. Then disperse to lobby our respective local Representatives and Senators. It’s a good idea to let your Senator and House member know that you are coming to the Capitol. You might ask them what time would work best for a brief meeting with you.
Then a wrap up meeting at a down town watering hole before people leave town.
If you want to carpool call Bob Mitchell at (319)329-0117. This Day on the Hill gives Iowa Landlords a chance to visit face-to-face with lawmakers from their home districts on the legislator’s turf. The commitment that is demonstrated by a Landlord taking time to travel to the Capitol and visit face to face with their representative is unmatched in results.
See you next week!
