President's Message

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 more than 1,800 property management professionals responsible for an estimated 750,000 residential units and more than 100 million square feet of commercial space. The membership also includes nearly 400 Associate Member firms that provide products and services used in the management, operation and maintenance of real property.

PMA's mission is to share knowledge, offer practical education programs and help members to improve their professional network. PMA’s goals are accomplished through a variety of mediums:

  • PMA sponsors regular general membership meetings featuring speakers and topics addressing a diverse range of issues, from building a customer service culture to the current state of the property management profession.
  • PMA offers a series of seminars on practical issues such as how to comply with fair housing laws, save money by conserving energy, increase NOI, improve collections or respond to the latest environmental mandates.
  • PMA provides unique networking opportunities at fun and exciting membership events such as the Summer Classic 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 times and networking.

PMA strives to combine learning, networking and entertainment 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 programs that provide forums for industry peers to interact and capitalize on an unprecedented wealth of information, experience and resources literally unavailable from any other source.

This website describes the benefits of PMA membership 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 unmatched member 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.
