Local Chapter Meetings
"Many MLA chapters have regularly scheduled monthly meetings. These meetings afford our members occasions to share their expertise with others regarding management problems that are similar to your own. Meet and socialize with other landlords in your area; improve your management skills; learn how to keep your vacancy factor as low as possible; learn valuable tips about repairs, maintenance, and recommended local vendors. Monthly meetings are also a forum where you can become an active participant in solving problems that affect the residential rental industry in your hometown or statewide."
