Greetings AANM Members! What a great start to 2018. As you read this, we will have held the first AANM Membership luncheon for 2018, and I anticipate it will be exciting, informative, and some great networking. We also hosted a successful training session for our Santa Fe members earlier this month and are looking forward to seeing those of you in the Las Cruces area next week for a happy hour!

We are busy putting the final touches on the Apartment Conference and Trade Show (ACTS), Spring Training. Remember, this year the dates for the conference are April 11-13th; it is also the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. Please make sure you get registered at I look forward to seeing you there.

As we all continue to navigate changes around us, whether that means professionally or personally, I am constantly reminded about the importance of kindness. "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle." -Plato

In closing, I hope to see all of you at the many events and educational opportunities that are offered at the Apartment Association of New Mexico.

See you all soon!

Recent national tragedies remind us that the risk is real: an active shooter incident can happen in any place at
any time. The best ways to make sure you and your loved ones stay safe are to prepare ahead of time and be
ready. Taking a few steps now and mentally rehearsing what to do can help you react quickly when every second counts.
We can all agree that one of life’s major stressors is moving. It’s expensive and disrupts your routine, requiring planning, packing, and unpacking. And while it’s bad enough moving into a new house, it might be worse when you’re moving your business into a new space. Now you’ve got employees to consider, plus you have the stress of keeping your business in operation during the move itself.
