President's Message

Scott Jones

Welcome to the Property Management Association (PMA). PMA is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the national capital region's property management community. Today, the Association represents nearly 600 property management professionals responsible for an estimated 750,000 residential units and more than 120 million square feet of commercial space. The membership also includes more than 350 firms that provide products and services used in the management, operation and maintenance of real property.

PMA's mission is to provide members a significant return on their investment of time and resources, exchange knowledge and offer practical education programming for the property management industry. PMA goals are accomplished through a variety of mediums:

• PMA sponsors monthly meetings featuring speakers and topics on a diverse range of issues from building a customer service organization to the current state of the property management profession.

• PMA offers a series of accredited seminars on practical and topical issues such as how to save money or utilities or respond to the latest environmental mandates.

• PMA sponsors unique networking opportunities at its fun and exciting membership events like the Spring Break Golf Outing, the August Social Lobster Bake, and the Holiday Ball. At these popular annual gatherings a who’s who of the property management industry in the nation’s capital gather for good time and networking.

PMA strives to combine learning, networking and entertaining whenever possible.

PMA's publications have received national acclaim for their effectiveness and our annual trade show - the Property Management Exposition (PMEXPO) - is recognized as one of the largest and finest events of its kind in the nation. Complementing PMA's practical education activities are a series of programs that provide a forum for industry peers to interact and capitalize on an unprecedented network of information, experience and resources literally unavailable from any other source.

This web site describes the benefits of PMA members from the perspectives of a property manager and a provider of products/services used in property management. As you tour our site, you will discover that PMA is a unique organization that enjoys an unparalleled measure of membership loyalty and success. I hope you have the opportunity to experience PMA firsthand. Please contact me if I can answer any questions that you may have.
