Who is NARPM?

The National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) is an important central voice for the property management industry.

NARPM® serves about 6000 of member landlords and property managers across most US states and around the world. The association offers an essential platform for professional education, accreditation and networking for property management professionals.

NARPM® promotes a high standard of business ethics, professionalism and fair housing practice and also certifies these standards and practices.

Their educational programs provide a platform to learn from the industry’s top leaders and achieve nationally-recognized professional designations that enhance member’s careers.

NARPM Conventions and Trade Shows

Each year, the association hosts one of the most important conventions, similar to NAA’s Apartmentalize Conference.  ManageCasa frequently attends many of their events and others around the country as do other software and service businesses.

These trade shows and local networking events are attended by a variety of residential rental property professionals including landlords, apartment managers, investors, HOA management companies and property managers.

This year, NARPM’s Annual Convention and Trade Show will be held in Kansas City on October 26-29, 2021. It’s 4 days of education classes and sessions along with a great trade show, which ManageCasa will be exhibiting. Come out and visit us at Booth #34.

The theme of the 2021 Convention is Share the Vision. No doubt the NARPM members are eager to move on past the Covid 19 pandemic and welcome in a more prosperous and trouble free era.

Getting everyone on the same page is a task, yet if any organization can move property management forward, it would be NARPM.

The NAA Apartmentalize event happening at the end of August in Chicago focuses on apartment management and multifamily rental business, whereas NARPM might focus more on property management with an accent on single family rentals, although not to the exclusion of apartments or other residential property.

NARPM’s Origins

The National Association of Residential Property Managers was launched in the 1980s when computerization was rapidly increasing. The industry didn’t have enough shared or standardized processes and regulations which would result in confusion as the rental business was being computerized.

In 1987, the organization’s first President was elected and in 1988, a newsletter was published 3 times a year.

The first national convention was held in November 1989. And in 1991 four one day educational courses had been created, designed for the single family home rental sector. The courses lead to the development of designations such as RMP, CRMC, CSS, and CRMB and other credentials for members.

In 1994, the organization developed a code of ethics and standards of practice, to enhance the professional behavior within the industry.

By 1989, membership had grown to 78 members, and by the fall of 1991, membership reached more than 150. It has since grown to over 6000 members, and more than 16,000 people on Linked in are listed as members.
