2020 Chapter Leadership Retreat

Update: The health and safety of our members is a number one priority, as such, we have decided to postpone the Retreat until a later date. We know how much you value this opportunity to network and learn from other chapter leaders. We will post updated information and new event details as we know more.

Elevate Leaders

Leaders set out to make a difference. And at IREM, we know a thing or two about managing to make a difference. Our chapters are the backbone of our Institute, which is why they need good leaders to inspire our members and help elevate the profession. This year, chapter leaders will come together at the Chapter Leadership Retreat for two and a half days of learning, networking, and fun.

April 20 – 22, 2020
The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago
Chicago, IL
