IREM Kicks Off Ethics Awareness Month

Professional ethics is a cornerstone of what it means to be a member of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) – and to honor that, September is officially IREM Ethics Awareness Month.

All members of IREM are obliged to uphold the IREM Code of Professional Ethics, conducting their professional activities in accordance with the Code. In addition, AMO Firms must uphold the AMO Code of Professional Ethics. These two Codes protect the public, promote competition, reflect contemporary business practices, and send a powerful message to the marketplace that IREM Members act ethically. IREM is one of the very few organizations that actively enforce its Code – violations are processed within a defined structure, including an established peer review process that may result in disciplinary actions.

“Member adherence to the IREM Code of Professional Ethics is what has set us apart from the rest of the industry since 1933,” states Michael Lanning, IREM President. “Our owners, employers and clients should know that IREM Members are bound by this strictly enforced code, giving members credibility and trust that our competition just doesn’t have.”

During Ethics Awareness Month, IREM and our network of 92 chapters across the US, and the globe, will highlight the commitment to ethics and integrity with the launch of the newly updated Ethics for the Real Estate Manager –ETH800 course, a live webinar entitled “What’s Your Ethical Health? An Annual Check-Up on Code Compliance”, and a social media campaign that allows members to show what IREM Ethics mean to them using #IREMethics on Twitter and Instagram.
