Hello all, February is off to a quick start and the ORHA office has been busy, busy, busy! With that being said, the office is finally catching up and getting back on track. Cheers to a great start in 2022 and I look forward to working with each and every one of you throughout this year.
Following up from our January 2022 board meeting, the office has reached out to a handful of small local associations who qualify for our Mentorship Program to assist in scheduling and hosting educational webinars for their association. If your association qualifies for the program, please feel free to view our list of available classes and reach out to email@example.com to schedule your class today!
As Tia mentioned in her Forms Committee Report, we have transitioned to a drop-ship company for our Local Forms Store Orders. Please continue to place your Local Forms Store Orders on Wild Apricot through your association log-in. Additionally, it is important to note that the ORHA office email is only being monitored Monday through Thursday – If an order is placed over the weekend (Friday through Sunday), it will be addressed the following business day. Patience from your association is much appreciated as we work through this new drop-ship process, if you experience any issues, please kindly reach out to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The conference room and hotel room block have been scheduled for our March 18th and 19th meetings – delegates, stay tuned for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org in the next coming weeks with a link and instructions to book your hotel room.
New Forms Discount Codes have been issued to all the associations for our ORHA Forms Store – if you have not already been notified of your associations new code, please reach out to their member helpline directly.
Lastly, as mentioned at our January 2022 board meeting, the Oregon Rental Housing Association has updated their 2022 ORHA Membership Reporting Process as follows:
- Locals will complete the revised ORHA Monthly Membership Dues Form and will email a scanned copy of the report to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
- ORHA Bookkeeper will Invoice your association or you may mail your check to ORHA Bookkeeper Lori Black at 1320 Hwy 99 N - Cottage Grove, OR 97424
- If invoiced, you can proceed with an electronic payment or a check deposited to US Bank and a receipt emailed to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
This process is posted on the updated ORHA Monthly Membership Dues Form and has been emailed out to all associations.
Note: if your association has already sent in their January dues to the Keizer, OR P.O. Box, your association may start the new process for their February Dues in March 2022.
** Reminder that the ORHA Monthly Membership Dues Form must be submitted by the 15th of each month **
Thank you all for everything, I appreciate this opportunity and am thrilled to be involved in this process.
